A Little Bit of Princess in Everyone

Anna has never been a girly girl. Of course, she is only 2, so I don't want to stereotype her just yet. But she's always been my little independent, outspoken little baby and girl.

I never wanted to push the frilly stuff on her just because she was a girl. But it just goes to show that kids will develop however they want. Jack, for example, was never a truck boy. But he sure loves music and making up stories. Isn't it funny how they develop personalities early on?

Anyway, Anna just recently started demonstrating some major princess behavior. I think it started when we watched the move, Enchanted. This is the Amy Adams movie where she goes from being a cartoon princess to a real-life one in New York City. I know it sounds silly, but it's actually pretty good. Well, Jack and Anna love this movie. Anna especially gets a little twinkle in her eye when she watched princess Giselle. She even does the dance motions when Giselle breaks out in song.

Then the princess behavior continued when Steve got her some pajamas that are in the gown/dress style. Anna recently decided that she didn't want her feet covered at night anymore, and Steve is eager to please his little girl. I think Anna would wear these dress pajamas all day if we let her. So we'll see how this princess thing develops. She still doesn't want me doing much with her hair to make it pretty. And she's certainly not timid. But it's fun to see kids grow up and develop.

I'm still trying to get a good video of her doing the motions and dancing. Stay tuned...

You know, you were not timid, and you were very outspoken (were? still are!), but you've always had a bit of the princess thing going on yourself!
