My Daughter: The Lady

She dresses herself. She only wears pink. And now, she sits like a lady. These aren’t things we are instilling in her. I never told her to sit with her legs crossed, but this is how Natalie likes to be. She is too much. Every day while I was at BlogHer, Bill would send me shots like this (or quick little videos of the kids) because he knew how much I missed them. I almost cried when I saw this one because I wanted to eat her right up. Too cute!

And that striped dress is her FAVORITE because it twirls. That’s another thing Natalie is obsessing about lately. She can’t wear something unless it twirls.

Girls are really such a treat. I wonder if I was this way when I was a child. I’m going to say NO. I think I was pretty easy going and quiet.

Does your daughter do anything like this?

  1. she’s adorable! I don’t have a daughter, but a 3 year old niece who has been obsessed with shoes, handbags, dresses, the color pink, and anything girly since she was an infant. she once cried when my sister would not stop at one of those tables of street vendors selling knock off bags in NYC….how old is your daughter. Also, is that picture in LI? I’m from the north shore.

  2. She’s really cute. I have 2 daughter the older one Amy is a real girl she’s 2 years old and only wants to wear skirts and dresses. She loves pink and everything girly. Just last week she started calling herself a cess (for Princess). The youngest one Lily is a real monster (a very cute one) but she’s more of a tomboy. I have been blessed with 2 beautiful girls, a princess and a little monster.

  3. All my pics as a kid are of my sitting like Natalie…and I always had a purse!

    Go figure…I love purses now too! πŸ™‚

  4. i don’t have any daughters but i have a god-daughter who is 7 and she is a girly girl. loves wearing her hair loose, tutus as everyday wear, twirly dresses, purses, earrings…you name it she loves it…all things girly. i was a combo of tomboy and girly. i loved “trying” to wear my sunday best as everyday wear but that didn’t cut it in my house. πŸ™‚
