Bandana dress, the sequel
Remember this dress from last year? (and omg how tiny does Kinsley look? Ugh) I find it so funny that many of the things that Kaitlyn has been wearing this summer are things that Kinsley wore only last summer. Things like this dress that I had left in Kinsley's closet thinking she might be able to wear it this spring again only to find that she had more than outgrown it. Why is it that even though I see them growing each and every day I don't realize how quickly they are changing?
Kaitlyn is changing dramatically these days it seems. The difference from week to week is astonishing, even day to day. It seems that she wakes up every day with some new bit of knowledge she has picked up along the way. Her vocabulary is rapidly expanding and her sentences are getting longer. I love that we are all able to have a conversation with each other now and even when we don't quite understand her language she seems to grasp ours quite well.
She is just as fascinated with animals and outdoors as she has been though she seems to be especially enamored with cows as of late. Thankfully living out here cows are easy to come by. Unfortunately it is hard to get anywhere without passing the cows. Immediately she points to them and shrieks "Mooooooooo!" but as soon as they are out of view she cries and is quite pitiful until the next cow sighting. The entire scene is almost too much for her daddy who has uttered the phrase "Maybe we should get her a cow." a bit too often for this mamas liking. Maybe next year honey. Maybe.
And yes, I realize the pockets are designed to be in the front. Big sister helped her to get dressed and they were both so pleased with themselves that we didn't feel the need to correct it. I kind of like the pockets in the back anyway...
