Playing Dress Up

8.23.2013

A few nights ago around dinnertime, I heard our doorbell ring. I opened the door to find our neighbors standing there in princess costumes. They were playing dress up and wanted Emerson to join in. ( I don't know I've mentioned this but we have the best neighbors ever! The girls are 2 and 3.5 and they are Emerson's best friends! She also loves their mom so much. I am so thankful to have them as our neighbors.)

Anyway, they had brought Emerson a tinkerbell costume to wear. They were going to play at the park with their costumes on. Emerson has never really played dress up and usually fights me to get dressed these days so I wasn't sure how she would feel about the costume, but I decided to give it a try.

I think this picture, showing her first glimpse of herself in the mirror, really says it all:

Y'all, it was the sweetest thing I have ever seen. She was SO excited! By this time it was starting to get late so I had really debated about going to the park but I just couldn't resist after seeing how excited she was.

She danced all over that playground and had the best time with her friends. We ended up staying out there until after dark because she was just so happy.


That was two days ago and I am not exaggerating when I say that she has barely taken that costume off since. It's currently 7:14 am and she's already decked out in the fairy wings.
Looks like I better get on the ball and find her one of her own. At this point I don't know how we are going to give this one back unless we have a replacement. :)

That's so cute! Henry has a monkey costume that he sometimes wants to put one but very rarely. I wonder if it's a stage he'll get to, or if it's a girl thing?
