By Herself


Eva is now wanting to do everything herself.
I don't need help, I do it.
I hear that a lot...

This is her putting the headband on herself.
She wore it like that for over an hour...

She would not accept help or take it off.
It made her talk funny.

The other night she refused to let her daddy put her in the stroller.
She had to climb in herself.
At one point she even got out just to get in on her own.

Tonight I put her pj pants on.
She took the off and put them on again.

But she only could get them half up her thighs...
dang those blasted tight fitting pajamas.
I do it, I do it!

She waddled around in a forced pegiun walk for 10 minutes.
With me asking her every 2 if she wanted me to fix them.

Finally she just ripped the pants off and threw them on the floor...
I don't want pants.

It is cracking me up...
I love you monster.

Haha - love her style! Can't we just decide that I can become her mother in law one day..?! :-)

Gotta love toddlers! One of mine got dressed, realized her shirt was backwards, then spent the next 10 minutes trying to make the pocket go in the front!

Erin said...

Yup, that's Annie right now too! But she insists on doing it herself and then when she can't she usually bursts into tears and then demands help :)

Meredith said...

Oh Lord. Lizzy too. I'm trying to embrace her being a little more independent before baby #2 comes along...but sometimes I just want to buckle her into her carseat in 2.5 seconds instead of waiting 25 minutes, ya know?!

I think Eva and my girls must be in cahoots! Veronica and Clarissa are all about doing things themselves, especially using the "big potty," and taking 10 minutes to climb into their carseats on their own. Yesterday Clarissa wore her pants inside out and backwards all day, because she wouldn't let me help. I loved it!

Oh my word nessa, that photo had me laughing to tears. She reminds me of tiny Tim from christmas carol movie for some reason. I needed that laugh today, tell Eva that aunt kellie thinks she looks perfect!

Love her new headband style - Putting hair in your face instead of away from it!!

Adrienne said...

Such a great shot! You can see the determination in her beautiful eyes! I remember this stage/mood/trial and error time soooo well! They do come back around ... her beautiful eyes will look up at you as she says help please...it will happen! In the mean time, enjoy the penguin waddles!

Ha ha - that's cute!!

I hear that a lot from my little man "I do it - Aaron do it!!!" He doesn't want me to help him with anything. The grow out of it, though b/c my 5 year old seems to want me to do everything for her!!
