Betsy Enters Girlhood

Betsy has grown into a full-fledged girl, now, with one of her favorite words "shus, shus," -- being repeated endlessly. Already she's far more of a fashionista than her mother... I knew it would happen some day, but really?!? Already?!? She's also been known to bring me bows she wants in her hair, or clothes she'd like to wear. (Trouble is, she's usually already dressed!) At least once a day, she brings me her shoes and insists I put them on her. More often, though, she'll find my flip-flops, and wander over to my feet, where she attempts to dress me. Oh, how quickly the daughter turns into the mother...

About a week ago, while I was busy putting her shoes on her, I told her we were going to GO. "Doh?" She asked. Yes, go. Well, after her shoes were put on I ran to the computer where I was checking grocery ads on-line. A few minutes later -- me still running through the ads online -- there was the gentle tapping as she tried to get that dang flip-flop on me.

Around her neck? My keys.

And it begins... :) Kallie was never into stuff like that. Whitney, on the other hand, changes her clothes about 50 times a day. I just keep putting them back in the drawer until they're actually dirty. It's amazing to see what these little ones come already knowing.

Ah, the joys of toddlers. I adore children that age because of those little moments.

Love it! Her hair is getting so long. She's looking like a young girl now, not so much a toddler. I love Betsy stories

Betsy is a doll. What a lucky little lady she is to have you as her mama!

I saw this picture on Facebook and I thought it was adorable, but then I read this story and now I think it's amazing! I love that she is showing her little colors and developing that personality that will always be unique to Betsy! I truly miss getting to see these fun moments and I hope we'll get to see you guys in the near future! Lots of LOVE! (Oh, and this is Kimmie. I just realized Shane is signed into his account and if I sign out it will erase everything I just put and I don't want to try and rewrite it...so know it's me. Love yeah!)

She is such a cute little girl. It is amazing how quickly they pick stuff up. Lily just started recently trying to put our shoes on us. It is really cute.

Adorable! I'm ready for Allison to begin having the girly girl moments. She already asks for her shoes to be put on and LOVES having painted toenails. I love little girls!
