Mia has just started to show an interest in dolls much to my delight! What fun it is to play with dolls instead of trucks for a change! It is one that I welcome and am very much enjoying! This morning she pulled out one of her baby dolls and started to feed her a bottle and put her over her shoulder to "burp" her. Then it was time to beautify them "Mia style" for the day. She pulled out the brush and "combed" their hair. The poor baby dolls lost their pony tails and some of their hair in the process. She would pick each one up by the hair and then when she was done "styling" them she would toss her to the side and pick up the next baby. She even squeezed in some time "beautify" herself. I guess her mama's hair styling just wasn't doing it for her today! We might have a future beautician on our hands!
Mia's 2nd birthday is this Saturday. I can't believe my baby girl is turning two already! So what does a previous mom of all boys decide to buy her little girl for her birthday? A kitchen set of course! Mia loves to drag out any unused pots and pans while I am cooking. She will sit and stir her spoon in her pot and "cook" right alongside me. I planned on going all out on her kitchen set and executed that plan quite nicely much to my husband's dismay! He thinks this particular kitchen set is way above and beyond what any 2yr old needs. So practical he can be! In fairness I have to cut him some slack because he is new to this having a little girl thing and all of the additional "accessories" she requires. He nearly choked when I told him Mia already has 4 bathing suits for the summer because, well, I have discovered I have a slight addiction for cute little girl's bathing suits! Poor guy! He will really be loving me when he sits down to put it together! In addition to her kitchen set she will also get some pots and pans so she can "cook" us a meal. Now all we need is some play food and we will be all set. Why didn't someone tell me having a girl would be this much fun?
