In the mail


Kylie had an exciting "mail box" week! Two super cute items arrived this week from two of my aunts. And since they've arrived she's insisted on wearing them as often as possible! First to come was her "pretty pink dress!" (as she calls it) that I asked my aunt to make for me. (One of these days I need to learn to sew...) Then two days later the shoes arrived from yet another aunt. Formal thank you notes are on the way, but Aunt Carolyn and Aunt Deanna, I think Kylie's face says it all! Now to convince her that not everything in the mail box contains dresses or shoes...

Anyway, now she's wanting to wear her dress and "fip fops" ALL the time. This morning she wanted to take a walk to look for "bow fowers" (blow flowers ~ otherwise known as Dandelions). I made her take off the flip flops but decided that it wouldn't hurt for her to wear the dress ~ even with the crocs. I'm sure that any other mother of a toddler girl has taken a walk in similar attire...













I figured that she' be wearing her dress all day, but I managed to talk her into changing out of it for lunch by telling her that we didn't want to get it dirty. She was tired from yesterday (waking up early and then for some unknown reason NOT napping at all yesterday ~ it was a "not so fun to be a mom day" yesterday afternoon as she got INSANELY tired) and almost fell asleep in her lunch plate. I guess she got too tired to eat all she needed because my girl needed a snack when she got up. She had a tough time deciding between a kiwi and banana ~ I told her that she had to choose ~ but finally decided a banana because "muh-key eat bah-nan-nuh" (monkeys eat bananas, we're going through a stage of loving monkeys. Oh, and she has recently started calling bananas by the correct name ~ no more "mahina"). Maya is always close by. The more I watch them together the more I'm convinced that we've got one of the best dogs on the planet!!!

What a beauty! Both the girl and the dress :) Your sweet Maya is quite the love and how adorable that she stays close to Kylie. Very sweet. I like how you were able to get the dress off for lunch!
