Girly fun

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?

I can't wait to see Mia's birthday pictures. What a special day it's going to be!!! Josie's favorite toy is her kitchen. I secretly love it, even though I wasn't the one that had to put it together...hee hee.

Too cute! I love her little pig-tails starting to sprout!! Ruby loves her kitchen and dolls too. Isn't it a relief after years of balls, motor-cycles, Pokemon and swords!!??
Happy birthday, sweet Mia.

Oh how cute! She is adorable and I love her styling gusto! Girls are SO much fun!!! That kitchen looks amazing! Don't feel bad, I ordered one after Christmas (2 years ago) and it is sitting in our shed waiting for Georgia's third birthday! She will love it!

From this mom of all boys to you, the former mom of just boys ... I wish we had a kitchen and some dolls too!!! :-) Sure Thomas and the trains and all the trucks and balls are great with the boys And I wouldn't want anything other for them ... but I secretly dream of a nice tea party and maybe some baby dolls (with a girl.) Sure it would send my husband into a fit having to deal with all those girly girl accessories/necessities ... but I think they are mom accessories just as much :-) How sweet to be such a role mode in practical ways for your child too! You go girl and enjoy it for us all will you?! (And secretly your husband probably is enjoying the little girl stuff too ... although he'll probably never admit it!) hee hee

I can relate, Melinda! My daughter is only 5 months old and she's already got Moxy Girlz, Liv dolls, Barbies, and Goldberger baby dolls. I'm even stocking up on dollhouse furniture whenever I get a chance, so that one day soon I can buy her a dollhouse. It was my childhood dream to have a big dollhouse. I hope Nina shares in my enthusiasm, or else I'll be playing dolls by myself. ;-)

After having sons and buying matchbox cars, trucks, and Star Wars action figures for years, it's so much fun to buy girly stuff! Enjoy it!!!
