“Big Girl”

March 16, 2012

It’s all happening too fast.

In just a few short months my little one will be 2 years old.

She even told me herself this week “Mama, I’m a big girl”

My big girl.

She’s using the potty. She’s eating oatmeal with a spoon. She’s tackling the stairs and slides at the play ground like a professional. She’s insisting on certain items of clothing and preening when she knows she’s looking cute. She’s named two of her baby dolls “Kaylee and Asher” and she pushes them around in her little pink stroller. I can’t help but be sad and proud of her all at the same time.

She is the perfect combination of bossy and sweet and she has us all wrapped around her little fingers. I asked her the other day about the kids in her class–we named them all and talked about her friends. Then I asked her if she had a best friend–she told me without any hesitation “Morgan.”

She likes her brother’s clothes and squeals when he gives her more new things to wear. I tried to get rid of some winter items the other day and she shrieked at me while snatching her brother’s hoodies and sweatshirts “Me Morgan’s shirt!! Mine!!”

I let her keep the lot of them. She makes one sassy little tom boy.

    All I can say Jen is that the apple does not fall very far from the tree….. ; )

    How precious that she named Morgan as her best friend…that brought a tear to my eye! I just love reading your posts here — however frequent or infrequent! What a great Mom you are!

    Laura, I teared up as well when she told me that her brother was her best friend. It blows my mind how much she understands and how sure she is of what she thinks and feels…perhaps the apple is not so far from the tree as you say!

    I am thankful each day that I have these two little people in my life. It is an awesome undertaking, but so worthwhile. Thanks for sharing it with us!
