Eloise walking has actually been one of my most favorite things in the entire world. Like I said before, this girl was never happy doing baby things, she was ready to take on the world one teeny-tiny step at a time. Her personality has changed so much, she is sweet, silly & quirky just like her big sis. It feels funny to me to have two kids just walking around, they hold hands & play together, like real kids. Kid kids. Not just babies.
The other morning when they were playing with their kitchen, Harper sweetly asked Eloise to make her something & handed her a plastic plate. Eloise continued to bang around a little bit until Harper took the plate back from her and said, “Mom. I asked Ellie to make me sumpin’ and all she made me was cat food!”
Harper’s concept of time always makes me laugh, when I ask her if she needs to go to the bathroom, she will tell me things like “nope, I already went to the bathroom after my nap last year.” or “when you were my age, and I was your age…” She is so silly & loves to ask me things like if she can have birds in her room like Cinderella does, or if the horses by our house poop in the grass, then what grass do they eat? 🙂 Clever little lady!
Sometimes her cleverness turns into sass & I get a pretty little glimpse into my future as a mom of three teenage girls. She gets her tutus & dress-up shoes taken away if she isn’t being good, but she is sure to find one at the bottom of a toy basket or in her teepee. She came scooting by me the other day with her giant Minnie mouse in front of her to hide the tutu she had on, and when she saw me notice it, she said “Mom, shhhh! I don’t want to hear you tell me one more time that I can’t wear my tutu. Don’t you even tell me. You can just look at Ellie while I go past you. Ok? Good.”
The two of them make each other laugh so hard every day, they already have their own funny little language & love each other so much. Even though Harper smacks Eloise in the head with play pots & pans sometimes, and Eloise occasionally bites Harper’s toes as hard as she can. Little gremlins, I love them so!
