My baby girl. My baby girl is growing up. Each day she looks less and less like a toddler and more and more like a little girl. She is still wild, adventurous, busy, and keeps me on my toes, but she is changing. With June being at school in the afternoon we have more one on one time together, for those three hours she is my constant companion. While June is at school I try to find at least one activity for the small girl. Sometimes Play-doh, sometimes painting, sometimes reading, sometimes we run errands. However, the other day she wanted to play with her new doll house and that is where this post begins.
Russ's mom gave the girls the cutest doll house ever for Christmas, it is adorable. In fact it was the inspiration for my new blog design, I like it that much! The girls like it too, they sit an play, rearrange, and do it again. The other day, however, it was just my baby. Here she is.
The details in the house are so cute.
I set the rooms up for Kendall. Make sure you look at the pictures, by the end the rooms are trashed, LOL.
Kendall was a bit excited that she was the only one having her picture taken. She asked me over and over, "Is this a photo shoot?".
"Yes, baby it is." And get used to it 'cause once June is in school all day next year you will be the only one left home for pictures!
She checked every inch of the house out. She wanted the windows closed not open.
The people are made of wood, however, you can bend their legs and arms.
Grandpa was playing the baby grand.
This is a shot where she thought she would "pose" for the camera. I begged her to open her eyes, but it was not going to happen.
Wait, I will open them if I can stick out my tongue:)
She decided my stool was a better place to pose as it involved climbing, which was of course a little dangerous in slippery stocking feet....danger is still her middle name.
More playing. (Notice the inside is looking a bit messy)
Kendall had a good time playing at chatting with me. One of my favorite things she says is, "Mom, I have a question". This is usually followed by a random statement, not a question.
So here she is, my baby girl.
As I look at her, I am aware of the blessings she brings to our family and ever thankful for the "surprise" God graciously gave to us. I often wonder what plan He has for her and what her future holds.
"Love begins by taking care of the closest-the ones at home"
Have a wonderful weekend!
