Girly Girl

When I did Reagan's room, I have to admit to doing a very girly theme. There is pink everywhere and there is a bit of a Cinderella theme going through the room. However, I never bought a single Disney princess anything, never made mention of Barbie, and introduced her to Pirates and trucks as early as one could. Yet here we are, with one of the girliest girls I've ever seen. I'm not complaining mind you, I'm just dumbfounded as to where it came from. While I freely admit to supporting her habit, we did not start or encourage it. I can only surmise that some girls are just wired that way.

So, what makes me think I have one of the girliest girls around? Let me show you.

I give you Exhibit A: The Princess Castle Tent
Reagan got a lot of things for Christmas. You never really know which ones are going to be the big hit and which will bomb harder than a Jessica Simpson movie. The Princess Castle tent her nana bought her was clearly the front runner this year. Since this tent has been set up in her room, she has refused to sleep in her bed, opting instead for a little sleep mat and sleeping bag set up in her tent. She spends all of her free time in this tent. She would refuse pop tarts and fruit snacks over a few more minutes in her tent.


Exhibit B: Her weekend attire choices
Reagan wears uniforms to school Monday through Thursday. On Friday's we pick something together to wear. On weekends when we are running to Target and Publix, she gets to pick what she wears. You might see a common theme here...





Exhibit C: The Minnie Mouse high heels
I made the mistake of letting Reagan go into the Disney store one day. She saw a pair of bright yellow Minnie Mouse shoes and immediately pulled them off the rack and started trying them on. I let her put them on. Instead of wobbling, getting frustrated and yanking them off (what I hoped would happen); she jumped up, ran off, and starting saying, "Oh, mama. These are my favorite! I love these."

So $20 later we were walking out with a pair of toddler size 7 high heels that I was sure would be tossed the moment we got home. Uh, can I say how wrong I was? Every morning when it is time to get shoes, she pulls them out and says, "How about these?" Then I have to tell her it is a school day and she can't wear them to school on a school day. But when weekends roll around, all bets are off. I let her wear them to her heart's content. If you weren't looking at her feet, you'd have no idea she was in heels. She's just as adept at them as a pair of sneakers. I guess she gets that from her mama. Good thing since Mr. Height Predictor said she's going to be a towering 5'3" in adulthood.

The soles are worn, the toes are completely scuffed out, but she wears them everywhere, even to scooter in.



Notice the purse she is carrying in this picture? She picked out her first very own purse before she was even a year old and carried it everywhere.

So that's our girly girl, Reagan. Two years old and every day asks to watch Princess or Barbie movies. Wears her tutus with her pirate shirts and high heels and sleeps in a princess tent. When I grow up, I want to be just like her.

Mama Mia said...

I can't believe how big she has gotten...and I think I may be her all grown up..sounds just like me when I was little, right down to the uniform for school!

I want to come live at your house. I would love to sleep in a princess tent!

If I thought I could get away with it, Id wear a pink tutu to Target, too! She is adorable! I'm pretty sure she is more adept in heels as a toddler than I am at them at 28. Sad to say.

That is so cute. I love the heels. So glad to see you back!!!

Michelle said...

We missed you!

And I love the views of Reagan as the girly girl. While Little Miss loves to put her Tinkerbell dressup dress on, she's far more likely to be playing with Thomas than anything else.

You have any idea how much trouble you're in for? ;)

Zoey's Mommy said...

She looks so much older! I love how girly she is. I wish my girl was girly! She's mostly very tomboyish but loves to play dress up. There's hope for her yet! Or I guess if she doesn't girl up some, hopefully this one will be a girl and will want to be a princess! :)

Oh gosh she is precious! Girly girl for sure!!
So glad to see you back :)

Deanna said...

You're back!!! I've been checking on you every few days to see when you'd make your return! Great photos and I love Reagan's wardrobe choices!

Joanna said...

Wow, you have been gone a while. Reagan has grown up so much!

I have to say, I love her personal flair. That tent rocks! I want my own, but I don't think dh will go for it. Even if he did, I'm pretty sure Michael's dinosaurs would destroy it anyway. :(

Melani said...

Hehe, that's awesome. I love the tent!!

Okay, now I wish I had a little girl.
