First off, today we had to go get groceries and we decided that before getting groceries we'd kill some time in town walking around Target and maybe ToysRUs, etc. So since the girls and I rarely get real out of the house outtings anymore we took advantage of this opportunity and decided to get Raya all dolled up. When I was finished dressing her I stood back and admired my work !
Mission Adorable- Complete.
This little pillowcase dress I got on Etsy when Raya was a baby. It never looked right on her rbefore she was walking, and even after she was walking I didn't have her wear it b/c she would always untie the ribbon straps! But now she is a big girl, and more mature about her ensembles (well that, and I tied the ribbon in double knots--haha Raya....try to figure that out! :-)
While in town we did go to Toys R Us and Raya was the only kid in the store haha...so she had a ball running around and touching every. single. toy. lol
I decided she could buy one thing---and since I can convince her to buy whatever I want, I talked her into a new outfit for baby Anna! Reason number 1,203,847 why I love having girls...the toys are way cooler! :-) And it's possible that I may have been more excited than her to dress baby Anna in her new attire this afternoon hehe. (We let Daddy pick the outfit out though, so he participated in the baby doll love fest)
Baby Anna had a photoshoot this afternoon...
The shoes are like plastic Barbie shoes, which Raya just thinks is the coolest thing ever. She spent a good 30 minutes taking off the shoes and putting them back on!
Raya and Daddy held a wrestling match tonight in the living room. I was the sideline photographer.
Tonight after Lee put Raya to bed he told me "Raya is so fun. I could spend all day hanging out with her." hahaha. He may not be a baby person, but he is lovin' the toddler stage!
Brielle just watched the wrestling match from afar....but it won't be long before she can join in the fun!! Two little girls ganging up on Daddy....can't wait!
Daddy may be calling "dibs" on Miss Raya lately, but I fight him for her all the time too
Lastly, tonight Raya was just dying to love on baby sister. I have been keeping her away b/c she's been sick, but since she's now been fever free for 1 week I decided I'd let her spend some time with sissy. Well Raya laid right down next to Brielle on the floor and started screaming "Cheese!!" ....she wanted me to take their pictures! haha. That's my girl!!
She just thought this photoshoot with sissy was the most fun she'd ever had!
See, aren't you glad I decided to do an update tonight? You were so close to missing out on this sisterly love goodness! This picture pretty much sums up the reason why I was hoping for a 2nd girl, and so excited that Raya got a sister!
They are totally going to be the best of friends when they grow up
This picture was taken after I put the camera away. Raya got upset and started crying "cheese! cheese!" hahaha. So I got it back out and said "Ok, just a couple more pictures" and she said "yay!"
Lastly, this picture isn't a very flattering one, but I thought you could REALLY tell how much they look alike, even now with the big age difference.
Hope everyone has a great week!
