Mirror, Mirror on the wall
Funny story. I got all dolled up on Sunday, eyeliner and all. My loving husband noticed and told me how beautiful he thought I looked. Bella was sitting right next to us. So Matt asked her, "Don't you think mom looks beautiful?" Bella answers "no". Matt and I were a little taken aback. Don't all little girls think their moms are the most beautiful? And usually when I get all done up Bella notices more than anyone. One day last week she was upset and wanted to know why I made my hair more pretty than hers. But anyways, we asked her why not? And she said because I was not wearing anything really pretty, and that she was really pretty. She said this while she was sitting there in her underwear. I pointed this out to her and said she wasn't wearing anything very pretty either. She disagreed and said her princess underwear were very beautiful. Matt then comes up with a great idea. "Why can't you both be the same pretty?" And Bella protests with a long "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!" Anyways this goes on for a while. I tell her she can be cute and I'll be pretty and she says she will be pretty and I can be cute. In the end, it was just a very scary eye opener for Matt and I. We need to think of more creative ways to tell our daughter how cute we think she is without getting her head any bigger. Can't really blame us though. She is our only daughter stuck between two boys.

She wanted me to make her this fairy headband today
She saw the above picture and was upset that I didn't get her flowers in it, she made sure this time they made it into the picture.
This was also taken today. My little prince starts nursery this week. It's so heartbreaking. I don't feel like he is old enough. And then I feel bad that I didn't feel this way with the others ones and just pushed them right out the door. When Oey see the camera now he does what he is doing in this picture. Leans forward, bends his little knees and says cheese with the greatest smile.
