My Little Girly Girl

Not only is my little boy big enough to start school, my little girl has become interested in girly stuff overnight. Well, really her girly interests have been there for a while, but they are really coming out in full force now.

She's started to insist on wearing ponytails almost every day and she's actually been leaving them in her hair, which is definitely a change. Before she would ask for "Pretties" but they'd only stay in for about 15 seconds.

The Girl has had a bit of a shoe fetish ever since we started putting anything on her feet, but that too has really hit its stride in the past few days. In order to leave the house now, I either have to carry her to the car screaming about shoes, or let her spend ten minutes trying every pair on two times to see what she thinks looks best with her outfit -- she's started asking for outfits too. You pick out a pair of overalls and she'll say, "No! Purple dress." or something along those lines.

We're learning just how spoiled we've been by having a boy who almost never cares what he wears as long as he can wear rainboots with it.

If The Girl weren't girly enough with her shoes, dresses and ponytails -- she's also started asking for "Lochlate" almost daily -- mmm chocolate -- and crying in overly dramatic sobs when things don't go her way. Sobs I remember far too well, since I used them myself only last week.

It's a good thing she's so cute or we might really have to sell her to the gypsies.
