In the meantime, thought I would share a few pics.
These girls of mine couldn't be more night and day. Bella, 4, is a princess. She is as girly as they come. Emily, 3, on the other hand, is a cowboy (not cowgirl). A tomboy at heart.
Santa brought Bella some make-up this past Christmas. She would wear it every day if she could. But, I don't really like her to get it into her head that she needs it.
Today I let her wear some and instead of me putting it on her, I let her put it on herself. And, true to being a little sister, Emily wanted to put some on herself, too.
Remember me saying they were opposites? It rings true in how messy or non-messy they are. Bella couldn't be more precise and careful about everything. Emily could be in a white room with nothing else and would come out dirty. That is just how it is. After they eat Bella has nothing on her or the table. Emily has food on her, the table, the chair, the floor and anything within a 3 foot radius.
To prove my point, here are the pictures of how they applied their make-up just a bit ago.
Bella and Emily sporting the 80's look. They both picked blue eye shadow.
You can see that Bella did a pretty good job of applying everything.
Emily is a hot mess! The eye shadow is everywhere! And the lipstick got everywhere except the lips!
Since I am picking on Emily, I will make it up and show you her little clay creation. They were playing with Playdoh the other day and I saw that she had all different sizes of balls on table. She told me that the big one was daddy, the next biggest was me, the two almost identical ones are her and Bella. Before she mentioned the tiny little ball I asked if it was Colbie, our chihuahua. She said no that it was America.
This is America! How sweet. This little girl is now a year old. She is our friends' daughter. The girls just love her.
