DAY 284


"A tiny daughter gives parents a life in a climate of perpetual wonder." -Pierre Doucet

This one sure keeps us on our toes! But how thankful I am to have been given a daughter who despite wanting to go fishing with the boys, also has a tender, sweet, feminine side. She loves girly things and has recently taken an interest to fashion and likes to coordinate her accessories. She seems to be in her own little world most of the time, always coming up with the most imaginative, clever, funny things to say and do. Haldan thinks she will always believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. She has also started cleaning her room on a much more regular basis. Not perfect yet, but now I know what she is capable of and it gives me a glimmer of hope.

I still haven't mastered photos in mirrors yet. (I'm looking slightly distorted.) And yes, Pokey has a giant mirror on her closet doors. Before we moved into this house we had already made plans to remove it, but it didn't happen and then some time along the way we took a liking to it. I think everyone should have at least one full length mirror in their house... ya gotta make sure you're presentable to the world.

  1. I wish I had mirrors!!! :) standing on the toilet at odd directions just isn't doing it! ;) It's always fun to watch a child blossom into what they are going to be...just when you think you've gotten it figured out, more petals blossom....
