Are We Creating a Split Personality?

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweet cousin Eli!! I can’t believe it’s been a year since you were born – weighing 2 lbs, 3 oz!! It was an amazing, miraculous, scary time, and we love you and are so happy that you are so healthy and smart and adorable!!!

This is what Ali looks like when she is with me:

This is what she WANTS to look like when she is with me.
She insists on bows, frills, jewelry, and if I would let her, would carry around a wet wipe all day to be at the ready just in case a speck of dirt fell her way.

This is what Ali looks like when she visits Gramamma:

  6. It might just be the lure of the mud puddle. Who can resist? I still have a hard time not wanting to jump in them and I will always try to hit them with my car. If it’s safe of course. I’m not THAT crazy driver aiming for all the pot holes and puddles all the way up the road I live on. Really I’m not….promise. :-)

    Happy early WW!

    Very funny! My little girl wants those Hello Kitty rain boots, they were out of stock in her size.

  8. Christine says:

    Everything is different with Grandma… It’s supposed to be that way! ;)

  9. My daughter is the same way!! At home, she hates getting anything on her, especially food on her face. At Baba’s (aka Grandma’s), she’s happy to finger paint with whatever you put in front of her, play in the mud, etc.
    So funny! She is so cute!
