My baby is officially five today. Look at her! I can’t believe I had a hand in creating such a beautiful, confident, smart, kickass creature! I knew this girl would be tough, even in utero she tortured me with her kicking morning, noon, and night. I told her this yesterday and she said, “That’s why I’m good at kung foo,” and immediately demonstrated her kicking prowess (when she should have been eating her dinner). That’s my Katie – thrilling me and vexing me all at the same time.
Today I purged a little more – with the kids! Katie chose to eliminate half of her stuffed animal (down to eight) and we eliminated a box of dress-up clothes under her bed. We kept the stuff but ditched the box and decided to utilize an empty vintage suitcase she already had in her room. We also went through her closet and purged her summer wardrobe – getting rid of things that are too small or she just doesn’t like anymore (apparently she is now opposed to monkeys). Katie’s tastes have changed this year and she is more adamant about her opinions. Her favorite colors are purple and black, she tends to go for edgier, punk styles, and she hates ruffles and bows. Anything “baby” pink had to go, as well as things that had bows, ruffles, eyelet lace, or anything remotely “sweet”. I would hold something up and she would either give it a thumbs up or thumbs down. Thumbs down were often accompanied by “that’s dumb” asides.
Thankfully I bought her fall/winter wardrobe at a local consignment sale in June – after she had made her new fashion choices clear. Babygirl now has a cohesive wardrobe that will transition from summer to fall to winter easily.
My boos posed for an impromptu photo session while jumping on our unmade bed. These two know how to pose for a picture![Gallery not found]
My babygirl, taking a bath this evening. I just joined December Views today, and so resorted to taking pics of the kiddos to get some momentum going. For more December Views click on the button in my sidebar.
I am thankful for this amazing, tiny person. I’ve never met anyone this fearless and tireless before in my life. She just goes and goes and goes. I learn from you everyday – Katiebaby.
