Happy with her selection of clothing
Giving the thumbs-up
Olivia came out of her room the other day with the red and white polka-dotted pants on. I mean, not around her ankles, but pulled up over her diaper, as if I put them on her myself. Although the pants were backwards, she dressed herself without any help. Our little girl is growing up way to fast. Ryan and I looked at each other and asked if the other person put her pants on. After figuring out she did it all on her own, we praised her so much she did not know what to think. Then I asked if she wanted to find a shirt. She went directly to the dresser drawer containing her shirts, and asked for me to open it for her...its a tricky dresser for a 2.5 yrs old. When she came back into the livingroom again, she had her pink flower dress. So, after helping her put the dress on, we all went outside to enjoy the evening before dinner. We've both agreed to be the parents who let their children dress themselves when going out in public, except if it's an occasion when the kids need to be presentable.
