Girly girl...

Jun 8, 2012

Chris has done a pretty good job "toughening" up Scarlett.  He throws her in the air, wrestles her to the ground and tackles her during a friendly game of hide and seek. She laughs endlessly when she is with him.  At 2 1/2 I have noticed that Scarlett plays really well with boys and gets easily frustrated with girls.  She is bossy and tough and prefers playing in the dirt over playing dress up.  I love this about her.  I love that she is a little fire cracker.  That she has opinions and is not afraid to push back against a big boy bully.  But I also love when I see the girly side of her.  Ever since hearing about her new sibling she has turned into the biggest mother hen and the little girl in her has been awakened.  She wraps up her dolls and holds them close and tells them "it is okay".   She asks me for pony tails and wants to play dress up.  I don't know if she is unknowingly preparing herself for the upcoming burst of testosterone in our household, but I am loving it.

Enjoying a makeover from her older cousins Kristine and Sarah...nail polish, hair braided and some lip gloss.  She looks so old.  P.S. I can NEVER get her to smile for a picture...I don't know how these girls did it?
