Day 22 of 31 for 21.
I grew up in a family of boys. And not just boys, but the kind of boys who got into everything. I think I always wanted to have a girl and Alice has proved without a doubt that she is most certainly a girl, complete with occasional fits of pre-teen stubbornness. When Alice was very little, I often set out clothes for her and helped her get dressed. I grew accustomed to having my choices vetoed by either Evie or by Alice. As she grew in independence, I stopped picking clothes out for her.
Sometimes her choices aren’t weather appropriate, but she really gets into dressing like a girl and generally speaking makes great color choices. She has a knack for picking out clothes that really make her eyes pop.
I can’t help but be amazed. I can’t do any better.
