She Is a Little Girl After All

The other night were invited to a friends house to chat with the missionaries and have dessert. While there, Lily and their little girl Ashlyn came downstairs all dressed up. Ashlyn is a major princess so she was showing Lily the ropes. Lily being new at the whole "Princess dress up thing" thought it would look nice to put a random purple sweatshirt around her neck and about 5,000 bracelets. She did look pretty dang cute if I don't say so myself.
Here is Ashlyn, the queen at princess play. She had a huge ruby ring on every finger. She is such a doll.

Today I was reading my Grandmothers book when Lily wanted to play makeup. She kept saying "Put the book down mommy."She has never been interested in makeup before so I was curious to see how she would do it. I was at a very intense moment in my book though and wanted another minute to get to a good stopping point. She then proceeded to play makeup with out me. She started wiping her face with a little wooden alphabet puzzle piece and was humming a tune. She said to me " Mom I'm just singing when I put on my makeup." She then continued to hum and I glanced over at her to watch and smile at her cuteness. When she looked over and saw me watching her she got embarrassed and said "Just read your book mommy. Just turn the page and read your book ok mommy?" At that moment I put the book down and went and got an old empty makeup case I wasn't using with a little mirror and a powdering pad to wipe her face with. We then played makeup till it was nap time.
