SIT Still.

February 23, 2009 by Michelle

Little Miss got a really cute new shirt. Ok, so I bought it for her. Because I’ve been ogling the shirts that Karen makes for months and months and we’re finally at a point where Little Miss is moving into a new size where we don’t have a bunch of hand me downs. Ok, as many hand me downs. Ok ok ok. It was too cute, and I couldn’t not have it. I admit it.

Little Miss opened the package herself when it arrived, and immediately held it up against her body to see what it would look like. Mommy, I’m be-yoooo-tiful. Look at my new shirt? Isn’t it be-yoooo-tiful? Why, yes. Yes, it is (thanks, Karen!).

Of course, this is the shirt she chose to wear the next morning. She was so excited to get to choose pants to match, and she did a pretty good job. Once dressed, she announced that she wanted to do a photo shoot. Mommy, go get your camera. I need pictures.

And so I did. I placed her carefully on the steps so that the bright colors of the shirt and pants would have nothing distracting from it. And then she couldn’t sit still. She had to talk. She had to move. She had to get the kitty involved. I kept snapping pictures, hoping that I would capture something worthwhile.

When I finally gave up, Little Miss wanted to see the results. I’ve discovered that this merely means she wants proof that I took her picture. She doesn’t care what she looks like or what she’s doing. It’s all about, That’s me! Look, more me, Mommy! I’m in that picture. See me, Mommy?

Oh well. She’s only three. And a half. I can’t forget that precious half. There’s only so much I can hope for, right?

PS It isn’t just me. My mom saw the shirt and took with her one of the business cards that Karen so conveniently enclosed. Now I need one for Mister Man!

    She’s cutie!

  • Beverly

    So cute, and such a fun, fun, fun age!

  • septembermom

    What a cutie! My daughter is 3 1/2 too and she loves to pose for pictures. Her brothers could care less about pictures. She always says, “One more, Mommy”.

  • Jill

    She is sooooo adorable!!!! I love her hair. I have a million of those hair things, I love them!

  • Karen

    So much to say. First of all, she is one tall girl for 3 and a half. Wow.

    She’s showing the kitty? That.Is.Darling.

    And I love that she wouldn’t sit still. This stage doesn’t last long. Enjoy it.

  • Debbie

    My goodness. Is she the cutest or what?

  • Cookie

    So Cute! I love the hair bow too πŸ™‚

  • Michelle

    Melisa – Yeah… that does sum it up nicely, doesn’t it?

    Veggie Mom – Yep, the kitties ALWAYS want in the action. They’re pretty sweet; you can see them in the window watching for us and running to the door when we pull in.

    MaBunny – Nope, that half (and soon to be three quarters, I’m sure) is VERY critical, and woe behold anyone who forgets it!

    Katie Lane – Thanks! I think so, but I know i’m biased.

    Beverly – Umm, if this is the fun age, I’m in REAL trouble πŸ˜‰

    septembermom – We go through phases. Some days she hides (literally) from the camera and others she is always looking for them.

    Jill – That’s hilarious that you love her hair. SHE HAS NONE πŸ™‚ I am soooo waiting for it to really grow in, but….

    Karen – Umm yeah. She’s pretty tall πŸ™‚ We’re very kitty oriented around here, and the kitties are very people oriented, fortunately.

    Debbie – In my humble opinion, yes. And it’s so nice to know that others agree with me πŸ˜‰

    Cookie – Cute, isn’t it? My mom bought it, of course. Don’t you wish you had girls right about now?!

  • Gibby

    So cute!! I think those type of pics are the best ever!

  • Michelle

    Gibby – Thanks πŸ™‚ They are kind of fun pictures. Except of course when I’m *trying* to do something!
