Catching Up...I think she is becoming a Princess

Today I finished another paper. That means I've only got 2 to go! (of course, they are the big ones for each course. The "final", ya know. But hey. 2. That sounds do-able!) In celebration, I'm taking some time to upload, edit, and post photos from the past couple of weeks.

When Mommy consents to wear Belle... Gwen insists we BOTH go take a look in the mirror!
Gwen made her own Valentines this year. Homemade fingerpaint. She thought it was delicious. (It is entirely edible. However, glitter is not.)
Eric took a sick day this week to recover from a nasty cold. Gwen was thrilled to have time during the day to play with Daddy. And even more excited when he showed her how wonderful it can be to crawl under the bed. Here they are together under Gwen's crib. She thought it was hilarious!
Have you noticed a theme? Pretty much every picture has Gwen sporting a Princess dress. This week she also discovered that she had just enough dresses to share with her baby dolls. Now they take turns being Belle, Cinderella, and Aurora.

What I don't have pictures of is how she is obsessed with putting her dresses to bed in the bassinet we brought out of storage for upcoming arrival. It is in our bedroom, but I find her in there laying her Princess dresses in one at a time, saying: "Shhhh. G-night Aurora. It's okay. It's okay. Go to sleep. Shhhh." And she'll stroke them so softly and tenderly. Repeat for each dress. A very reassuring mommy. She's going to be such a great big sister!

Also don't have pictures of how she puts her small hand-held polly pocket sized Cinderella, Aurora, and their accompanying dresses to sleep in her sparkly shoes every night. It is really funny.

Stay tuned for photos of cookie decorating, update on sewing project, and other fun!
