It has been so much fun watching my little girl growing up over the last 21 months.
She is becoming her own little person with a unique personality. She’s a smiley, happy and loving child who also knows exactly what she wants -- and she isn’t afraid to tell you what that is.
One of her most recent evolutions has been her sense of style -- or lack thereof.
There have been so many times in recent months where she has popped her head around the corner, and I can’t help but laugh at the clothing concoction she pulled together.
She loves wearing everyone else’s shoes. A couple of months ago she was walking through the house with a dressy shirt, no pants, my giant boots halfway on, a pair of sunglasses and a bottle of shoe cleaning spray in her hand. She looked so adorable in her crazy conglomeration of clothing items -- and cleaning supply?
She’s always clunking around in someone else’s shoes that are undoubtedly way too big for her. If I’m ever running late first thing in the morning, it’s probably because I’m on the lookout for my shoes that my little fashionista stole.
Last week, I was in the kitchen doing dishes and she had been playing quietly in her room. She came in the kitchen to ask for a cup of milk, and I instantly started laughing. She had her pretty pink dress on with the big flower, her hair carefully tucked into pigtails, a gold unicorn headband, a blue bangle shoved up to her biceps and a dinosaur in her hand.
She definitely has a mind of her own, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
