My Girl

Sonya starts school this week.  I am so excited, not just for the break, but she is ready.  Her imagination has just exploded lately.  That definitely has presented its challenges.  Her lack of listening has been out of control because her brain is moving a mile a minute.  It is also fun at the same time see and hear what crazy things she comes up with.  
Here is a list of what she has been up to:
  • She is constantly a different character.  Princess Fiona, Cinderella, Ruddles the Clown, Helen Parr, etc.  Then she will assign different characters to the family.  Josh Mr. Incredible, Me Prince or Elastagirl, Teddy mostly baby crocodile.
  • She likes to be a mermaid at the pool.
  • She changes her outfit at least 10 times a day.  Really, rotating the same four dresses with either a swimming suit or leotard thrown in there, and her two frilly skirts.

  • This is one of her favorite outfits, a coconut bra and a skirt.  And yes, she is posing on a trash can.
  • She LOVES the Glee soundtrack.  She especially loves Rachel Berry, Rachel's daddy (Finn, that is how she refers to boys when girls are in love with them), and Rachel's mama ( the Idina Menzel character).  Whenever she wants to listen to Don't Stop Believing, she asks for "dun dun dun."  Then she has to run to put on her "dun dun dun" dress and shoes, so she looks like Rachel.

  • Notice the strap hanging in the back.  She started turning her dress to make it look like a halter, like what Rachel wheres in the season finale.  Her other favotite Glee songs are: Bad Romance, Shout It Out Loud, Poker Face, and Defying Gravity.
  • Her new favorite shows are Yo Gabba Gabba and Fresh Beat Band.
  • She has turned my pink snuggie into a fancy gown.  She puts her body through the sleeve, which fits her perfect and then she has a long "beautiful" train behind her.  This ensemble also doubles as a mermaid costume.
  • The other day, her twisty straw became a trumpet, a guitar, and then a microphone.
  • She loves getting a booty scratch.  Yes, that is exactly how it sounds.  She lays down and has me scratch her butt.
  • She has been very into her hair lately.  Always wanting to feel it on her back.  I can see why, look at that hair.

  • The other day she was eating and apple and got to the core saw the seeds and asked, "Is that coffee in my apple?"  She LOVES to eat coffee beans.
  • When she goes to bed at night she likes the door to her room, "Cracked like an egg."
  • Blue is still her favorite color, and she will tell you about 1,000,000 times a day.
  • She likes to match what am I wearing.  Like both wearing dresses, or the same color shirt, and so on.
  • She still loves to paint herself.
I am so proud of my girl.  
I can't wait to see how she grows mentally, physically, and spiritually this year.

    Love that you are keeping a record of these memories. My favorite is the door cracked like an egg. So amazing to me how children are so creative.
