happiness hit her

summer has a new favorite song.  it's been a fave of her mom's for several months now, and summer's capricious musical interest has finally grabbed hold.

florence + the machine call it "dog days are over," summer just calls it "dogs" (or sometimes "puppies"), and she requests that the song stars in our afternoon dance party most every day. (to which afton chants, "dance! dance! dance!")

(side note: do you bite your thumb at us, sir?)

i think the song's lyrics must really resonate with the trials of toddlerhood.

that's right, summer, "leave all your love and your longing behind, 
you can't carry it with you if you want to survive."
