determined

Addie Blue is determined to dress herself. Right now, tonight. She's been at it for about 20 minutes now and she had one leg in her pants but then took them off again when I told her she had to put her undershirt (onesie) on first.
I ask her if I can help.
She shakes her head no.
She puts her shirt on her head.
I ask if she needs help.
She shakes her head no, and pats her chest,
mey, mey, mey.
She snaps the snaps together, but they don't stick. She sticks her arm through the sleeve, backwards.
I ask if she needs help, and she tears away from me; pants in one hand, undershirt in the other, flapping her arms (and clothes) up and down, screeching and shaking her head no.

She's cute.
Tempermental, determined, and cute.

Gosh I love that age- truly my favorite age of all! My two are so far away from that age - I'm really almost ready to be a grandma of that age! OY! I just realized I might be considered OLD! ;)

Have fun with your sweet, independent minded (I imagine like her mommy ;) ) baby girl!
