my girl

so being the mom of a boy is familiar to me by now.  lots of sword fights and transformers and superhero costumes.  but, all of a sudden i'm getting to experience my daughter being a girl (all on her own--not by me getting to play dress up with her! :) )

She has taken to dressing up.  Initially, we found her in my drawer where I keep my shall-we-say unmentionables.  She had dressed up in lots of things in bright colors and had thrown everything out on the floor in a huge pile, then climbed in the drawer herself to get better access.  We, of course, had to take pictures....but, we will not be posting them here!  (She had also gotten into another drawer and had put on my hats and scarves....I think the apple does not fall far from the tree when it comes to my love of accessories!)

I will, however, post the pictures of her playing in my jewelry drawer.  She LOVES, loves to play dress up while I get ready in the morning.  I've gotten so tired of cleaning it up every time, that now if you come to my house unannounced you will find a bathtub of jewelry, b/c I just leave it in there and throw her in there with it to keep it confined!  :)

So, here are a few of my girl becoming a girl before my own eyes....I love having both a son and a daughter so much!  Thank you, Lord, that I get to experience both!


  1. having both is the BEST!! and oh how fun it is to have a precious little girly-girl!!

  2. oh how i too LOVE having both!! and how i LOVE having a little girly-girl--it only gets better and better!
