Love Being A Girl



I love seeing the things Scarlet seems to know without me ever teaching it to her. Like the first time I set Capn Crunch on her high chair tray and she ate out all the crunch berries and left the yellow pieces. I especially love watching her girl instincts come out. She already loves putting on "makeup" and uses my blush brush on her cheeks just like I do. She loves it when someone says she looks pretty. She carts around bags on her shoulder like a purse. And now, we have added the doll.


I think she looks like a celebrity mom in a magazine in this picture, hiding her face and kid from the paparazzi. My mom bought her this doll and she has been wheeling it around in its stroller and giving it cuddles ever since. Most of the kids her age in our area are boys and I'm not really sure she has ever seen a kid play with a doll. And yet there she is!

Jon and I really enjoy our ward. We have made such fun friends. Jon played babysitter the other day for my friend's two boys and Scarlet during our Primary Activity. They are the cutest kids.



I am so sad we didn't get a picture of it but when we got home Blaze (the younger one, about 3 days younger than Scarlet) was in Scarlet's jean frilly shorts and neon green shirt that reads 'little lady.' I guess the kids had some sprinkler time so Jon threw him in the first clothing he could find to get him dry. Too too cute.

Scarlet is too cute! It is amazing how girl traits and boy traits just come out and don't really have to be taught. I got a chuckle that she ate all the crunch berries. She's a smart one, that's for sure!

Oh...Scarlet is so cute. Great pictures!! I am going to have to get Jon to babysit Jane it looks like the kids had fun. Sprinklers are a totally crowd pleaser and popsicles; he's good.
