Not to mention her excitement about wearing "Minnie-bows"!
She also has her supermodel/superstar poses down pat.
But in the past couple of weeks, it hit a new high. First, we went shoe shopping for some new sandals about two weeks ago. As I handed her a shoe box with some practical but pretty pink sandals in them, she opened them and literally squealed with delight. Squealed. And couldn't wait to put them on! It should be noted that I am decidedly not shoe-obsessed, and while I do have a few pairs of pretty shoes, they are also inexpensive, comfortable and practical. People who care about such things would look at my feet and think, "there's a mom who just doesn't care anymore". So I have no idea where she gets this love of shoes!
I should also point out that after trying on two pairs of sandals, Aurelia was convinced that she wanted the less-practical white-with-a-pink-flower sandals over the more practical shoe. I promptly hid those until she forgot they existed, and now she is the proud owner of some very pink yet practical sandals!
The flip side to her fashion-loving ways is that she is constantly telling me my dress (which is sometimes a shirt or a skirt) looks nice - "I like a dress. Pretty!". And that's pretty darn nice to hear, even if it is from a two-year-old! She even told me I was a princess on the night of the party. Aww...
Me and my princess
