As her father likes to say, she’s a girl!
I took her shoe shopping the other night. I wasn’t sure we’d get out of there with only one pair. She tried on at least eight. And was annoyed when I tried to get her to put on one white maryjane and one black maryjane at the same time. (What? I was trying to save time.) And while sometimes I’m not sure whether she understands what I’m saying, it was quite obvious that when I said we were going shoe shopping, she knew we were going to buy some shoes!
The other funny thing is that she wears Duplo rings (think: big and plastic) on her wrists as jewelry. Insists on taking her keys with her whenever we go to the car, and puts on and tries to walk around in any and all shoes that she finds. No shoe left behind. Just all scattered around.
She plays hide and seek. She told me she needed her diaper changed and when I got up to do it, I couldn’t find her. I called her a couple of times. I asked the boys if they knew where she was. Then, I hear a little giggle coming from the closet.
She loves “Mo-yee”, the dog. Every picture she sees is “Mo-yee”. So I googled “golden retriever”. “Mo-yee, Mo-yee, Mo-yee!” she shouted, pointing to every dog.
And, while she knows all her brothers by their names, she doesn’t say their names. They’re all collectively called, “Boy”.
Her favorite things though, by far, are balls. She has a collection of them. Several of which are pink. She carries them around in a lunchbox. She talks about them all the time. And she finds them in her food. Peas, naturally, are little green balls. Even black beans have a ball-like structure, she was telling us the other night.
I probably never would’ve thought of them that way until she pointed that out.
