Hadley is starting to pretend. She takes her stuffed animals and makes nonsensical noises, like she's talking to them, and then they talk back. She picks up her plastic bee toy and says, "buzzzzzzz." Best of all, she's starting to love dressing up.
My godmother (whose maiden name is Hadley) sent our Hadley a purple crown of flowers and a purple leotard with attached tutu. It's just about the cutest thing I've ever seen, and Hadley likes to put it on and pat the tutu; she's so proud of it. (Photos soon, I promise!) She also likes to put random diaper covers on her head, as evidenced here:
"Diaper covers make very good hats."
And of course, she must try on other people's shoes and her ladybug wellies, which are three sizes too big.
There is something alarmingly go-go-dancer-ish about her pose, don't you think?
Sometimes she likes to throw on my clothes (here, she's wearing one of my pajama tops) for fun.
(I love that her hair is all wild from pulling that thing over her head half a dozen times before she got it just right.)
I am looking forward to many, many snowy mornings playing "queen" and singing our hearts out to old show tunes--and this time, I promise to share the spotlight (as if I'll have a choice)...
