Charlie and Evie are really into dress up right now and it has been so much fun to watch. Aside from dressing up as a football player (Charlie) and little Indians (both kids), Charlie loves to dress up as a fire fighter and Evie loves to pile on every piece of jewelry she owns. Then, to top it off, she all of a sudden found and fell in love with this pink tutu. She found it in her closet (saved from her first birthday photo shoot), demanded to put it on, and then looked at me happily and said, "Ebie's a ballerina!" I had no idea she knew what a ballerina was, but her enthusiasm was so cute. It is now all she wants to wear and she is convinced that she looks absolutely fabulous.
Here they are after dressing themselves...Evie also insisted on wearing pink "foo flops" that are two sizes too small. :)
Evangelina Ballerina. :)
Even ballerinas can be very wild when playing outside.
Baby Elle dropped by to see the costumed kids. She was very impressed, and impressed Evie back by donning this giant pink bow. :)
How could Evie not be thrilled--tininess and pink, all in one cute package!
I love watching Evie with Elle. She is so gentle with her and just thinks she is amazing. In the middle of playing, she just jumped up, ran over to Elle, gently touched each foot, and then ran back to keep playing. Just needed to check in! :)
Ahh is in town for baby's birth--can't believe it is so soon!!!
At some point, Charlie ended up back in his football uniform. I think this has been worn every day since Halloween...best (or worst??) investment ever?
Charlie always has to wear his "long socks" and cleats with his football uniform. He is convinced that with all of these essential pieces, he is the fastest guy in the world.
Evie's baby doll, "New Baby Elle" (as opposed to "Old Baby Elle," above), had to spend the afternoon outside with us.
I am so loving these ages right now!
