The Perfect Child

I like to think I have her. Little A is WONDERFUL! She is now 14 months old and walking and talking like a champ! We can go anywhere and she is so well behaved! Going out to eat is so easy for us because she sits in a highchair and plays with the crayons they bring and the loads and loads of toys I bring for her. She eats everything that is put on her plate. She is not a picky eater at all...we are talking Little A ate a raw onion at Red Lobster yesterday. She isn't scared of anything! She loves playing in the dirt and loving on her baby doll. She gives hugs and kisses like they are going out of style! She doesn't say "no"...yet. It is always "yes mom" or "yes dada" and she says it with a smile on her face. Though she is always into something she is very OCD (she got it honestly really) and puts everything back where she found it.

This child is my entire world. The problem...I am no longer hers!! She use to need me for everything. Now she needs me to change her diaper and get her milk. Now she takes care of 'Baby'...her oh so creative name for her baby doll. She feeds it her left overs, makes sure it has plenty of juice splashed on her face and loves it like she will never see it again! Last night Little A decided baby needed a bath after she got done with hers. She ran into her room and got baby out of her stroller and drug her into the bathroom where she would proceed to give Baby a the toilet. I guess it made since, because it was the only water left in the bathroom (except the river she made on the floor during her bath). Thank GOD the company this doll is made by makes them completely machine washable!!! (If you have a girl or ever have a girl check out these Corolle dolls...they are WONDERFUL...they have all different ages and cool stuff like that)

Anyways...I'm going to go back to my happy blissful world with Little A and avoid the real world of doing laundry, dishes, and the ever so dreaded Commissary. I will leave you with a picture of my life!
