Hannah is beginning to turn into very much the fashionista. Nowadays she loves to choose her own clothes to wear, be it her clothes for the day or her jammies. If the clothes I have laid out for her aren’t the ones she likes, she’ll take them and tell me, “Dowan this one…” and head to her room to choose some other clothes.
The problem, of course, is that she cannot decide what clothes she wants to wear…sometimes. At other times though, she can be very specific about what she wants. She’d ask for her “Rock Princess” jammies, or she’d want her jeans or tights.
And then there is also the matter of her diapers. As if it weren’t enough that she chooses her clothes, she has also taken the liberty to choose her own diapers. I’m referring to cloth diapers, of course. 🙂
She’ll ask for her “sheep diaper”, or “animals diaper”, or “turtle diaper” or sometimes by color. Of course, some of the *diapers* she’d requested are not available. Sometimes I have to cajole her into accepting the diaper of my choice.
Some of the diapers she gets to choose from (some are *boyish* colors, because they are passed down from Ethan):
Hannah confirms her role as a little fashionista by showing a keen interest on my jewelry. Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings…you name it, she’d want to get her little fingers on them pronto. When she examines my earrings, she’ll pretend to pinch her earlobes and say, “Ouch!” because she knows that it will hurt a little when it is time for her to get her ears pierced. And when I ask her if she wants Mommy to make her a nice bracelet or anklet, she’ll nod her head and say, “Yes.”
SIGH…is it true that girls are wired that way? I’m beginning to believe it.
