We've had quite the development here at our house....
It's surreal to me that I have a child old enough to be losing teeth. The tooth fairy was good to her though I doubt she'll ever spend the coins. She called them her "special money." Nobody, more specifically, her kid brother, is allowed to touch them.
I love that she wrote out her name with a little "v" in the middle. That's my favorite way of writing her name. I didn't think she had ever noticed...
Eve was out and about last Sunday afternoon, taking advantage of the gorgeous weather. Her cute little nose was sniffing all sorts of fresh spring flowers! Apparently this particular flowering pear tree didn't smell so good to her. Ha!
Join in the fun over at I ♥ Faces! The theme is "Green" and the contest will close Tuesday night.
The bug caught up with Eve last night. Bless her heart, she is miserable. But you certainly wouldn't know it by looking at her. Earrings, bracelet, sparkly mini skirt, barrette, coordinating tights... She's decked out in a typical outfit.
Eve has her own sense of fashion and one of her rules is:
"Just because I feel like crap doesn't mean I have to look like crap."
(Okay, I paraphrased.)
Eve is 100 percent wardrobe conscience at all times. Even when vomiting.
I hope that someday she finds a man that celebrates this fantastic part of who she is...
Eve knew, from the first time her eyes gazed upon all the sparkly shoes sitting on the shelf, which color was "the one" for her.
She's loved them ever since that moment. Loved them to death.
I can't pry them from her. Not that I've tried. I've come to the point in my mothering career where I've learned to let some things go. And that includes Eve wearing these shoes in public.
They make her happy. She loves them. And I love her.
I wish I could buy her a new pair but I don't live near the Target where we bought them at. Or any Target for that matter. And I haven't seen shoes similar to hers around here. Shopping is very, well, limited in this town. So, she wears them and it's okay.
Maybe not classy but it's okay.
And hey, at least we know we didn't waste our money.
I hate it when my babies get sick. My heart breaks for them.
Eliza is a trooper, though. She tried her best to flash us a smile every now and then. She tried to eat. She didn't cry too much when she would throw-up. But the baths... the million and one baths she had to endure.... they got to her.
Eliza has issues with running water. And by issues, I mean, she hates it. Poor thing, when she would throw-up she would inevitably end up with it all over her body. In that instance, the drawing of a luxurious bath was not forefront in my mind. So, into the bath she would go, running water and all.
And then the screaming would ensue. Believe me when I say, it was as torturous for me as it was for her.
Little 'Liza-Lu started to perk up a bit yesterday after her afternoon nap. I was happy to see her face break into that sunshiny smile I love so much. She even bellylaughed last night while I was getting her dressed into some pajamas.
The serious face that she sports while sick is a thing of the past. And I am so glad! I sure was missing my sunshine girl.
But now... Judah is complaining of his tummy.
Summer... HURRY UP!
Here's a little live Eliza for you... Beware, the high five at the end may slay you with it's cuteness!
