Love Love

my beauty
Stella. My sweet little doll playing, tea party playing, dress wearing girl. She is a girly girl. I have to count the cost when I take us all on a hike. I know I'll be dragging her along at some point. Or carrying her. I don't like playing dolls. Or dressing her poly pockets. I'm sorry I don't. But I do it. Sometimes. I don't remember being so girly. I must have been though I have pictures of me in dresses and long hair, and I look happy about it. I love Stella as she is right now. I love hearing her play horses with her brother. Saturday morning her and I went for hot chocolate at our special coffee shop. On the way home she says "Mom. If we were in a team together the team would be called the Love Love team." Ahhh my heart melted. Yes, team "Love Love" my sweetness, forever.

oh that's so sweet. I love combing her hair when she visits and I even bought girl hair bands for when I do braids for her next time. hee hee. And she sits so darn still when I do the braids. It's amazing.

gorgeous photo and sentiment. my baby girl is going to be two soon.... so hard to tell how girlie shy will be with two big brothers.... i have always been a good mix of girlie and tomboy. doesn't matter to me, i guess as long as she invites me on the "love,love" team too

Aww how sweet! I was pretty tomboy-ish as a little girl but I've gotten much more girly over the years. I hope to have a little girl some day - maybe with a bit of girly-girlness?
