Sofía is such a girl.
We certainly haven’t been pushing girly stuff at her, so it’s interesting to see how she naturally gravitates to things sparkly and frilly anyway. I mean, she’s only two, there is no Disney in this house, and she’s never seen or worn a princess dress before – but she loves it like she was born to it.
We borrowed a princess outfit from a friend for a special party we’re going to, and it’s all she wants to wear. She asks for it every single day and prances around for hours in the entire outfit. She asks for the crown, the wand, and even totters around in the little high-heeled shoes.
Now that I know that she’s so interested in playing dress-up, I bought a cute little wall-mounted coat rack at a consignment sale last weekend. It’ll go on her wall or inside her closet so she can have a special place to hang all her future costumes; I’ll be sure and hang it low so she can get to them all by herself.
Personally, I couldn’t be happier that she’s turning out girly. I’m going to make her all kinds of play clothes, and we’re going to have so much fun!
