And Why Wouldn't You?
I really do love my blue eyed girl.
She is sweet and spunky. Affectionate and silly. Smart and mischievous. Kind and gentle. Energetic and determined. And she has a sweet tooth like you wouldn't believe.
And I love that she has blue eyes. It's selfish because mostly I'm just happy that it makes her look a little bit more like me. Drew is a spitting image of his father (I'm not complaining) and Abby also resembles her dad's side of the family. She actually looks like her Aunt Denise did when she was a little girl.
But, the blue eyes - they are mine. And I think that at least one of my children should resemble me just a little.
I did grow them for 9 months and all...
So, back to my blue eyed girl -
She's a girlie girl and I'm totally ok with admitting that I wouldn't have it any other way. I love that she twirls around the house in her dresses and wears dress up shoes with her pajamas. She carries around a purse more than I do and she's always excited to pick out matching bows for her outfit. She loves to have her picture taken almost as much as I like to take her picture.
But, I tend to go overboard when I start taking pictures. I take as many as I can because it's the only way to guarantee that I'll get the shot that I want.
After too many pictures to count, she starts to get a little bored with the whole thing.
Boredom turns to annoyance -
And that turns into downright disgust.
Is it wrong that I love this expression just as much as the ones where she is smiling?
I love all of my kids expressions and I love capturing them in pictures so that I'll always be able to remember how their precious faces looked when they were young like this.
But, that face is not a good sign.
No, I better promise that there will be some M&M's in the near future...
There we go.
I told you this sweet girl has a crazy sweet tooth!
