"You look beautiful!"

Well, it has started.

I realize that it is probably unusual for it to have taken this long. For most little girls, this is probably a milestone that happened several months, or even years ago.

For our family, it was today.

The first day that Nora wanted to pick out her own clothes.
I announced that it was time to go get ready and Nora looked at me and said, "I'll do it myself!"

So, we let her.

And she did a pretty good job. Those aren't exactly the shoes I would have chosen and I don't know if the necklace really "makes" the outfit-but she is proud of herself!

She wanted to do her own hair too. I vetoed that idea.

So, it has begun. Years and years of compromising on clothes, letting her develop her own fashion sense, cringing when she emerges from her bedroom.

Let the games begin!

And the good times will role. Krimson wear's two different shoes sometimes (on purpose) and carries two purses too. I love it! You've got good times ahead!

I think she looks FABULOUS.
