On this particular day Morgan happened to come wearing a dress, and Maggie was wearing a dress. It was conincidental really, but it made quite an impression on Brooklyn. She did not appreciate being the only one without a dress. The next week she wore a dress 3 days in a row to make SURE she was properly girly represented. Check Dixies blog for the pic of all three in their dresses and do's. I might also add, this is probably one of the cutest pictures of Morgan ever. She's so clean and put together.
Note Maggie looking at the girls. This is so indicative of her as she applies to them. They run the show, they do everything and most of the time she just follows along behind. If she isn't following along, she's smacking them or doing something to ruin their imaginary game. But, all in all they're patient with her and let her play along.
Also, on this day, Brooklyn was not pleased that she was the only one without TWO ponytails. What can I say, by the time I got to her, I was two ponied out (I did Morgans hair too). Sheesh, can't get anything past this girl. I think she's quite lovely with her side pony, but that's just me. I just love these three girls and how completely different they all are! They all look a lot like their Daddy's and have a lot of their Mommies temperaments.
So, Brooklyn has been MIA from our house since last Friday and Maggie is MISSING her! On Friday, about midway through the day, I was working in the kitchen and Maggie came out of her bedroom with a purse on her arm and announced..."School. BYE." I said, "you're off to school huh?" And she said..."JEP" (yes). Then, she did the obligatory lap between the fireplace and her bedroom, announcing at least three more times..."School." She amazes me with all that she understands and says. Anyway, everyday since she asks for Brookie and then makes me sing "Brookies song" (a retarded little song I made up for her when she was a baby) over and over and over. Sigh, this summer is gonna be a toughy.
