This little girl was born with a ton-o-hair. Can you tell?
In these pictures, she's only a few weeks old. I think it was 4 or 5. But see that look on her little face? She was telling me, "Hey, you're *not* my mom." She's very opinionated.
And oh, my gosh, how sweet is it that her hair CURLED when it was washed oh so long ago?
Today, this cute little bugger is 3 years old. I'm in awe. She has such a sweet nature, and reminds me of my sister in all the nicest ways (though she also has her stubbornness)(and dislike of waking up)(I'll stop with the similarities now). I love that she willingly spends the night at my house without her mommy. I love that she has her own name for me -- Schoon -- melt! I love that she adores her 'big' cousins, but still prefers to cuddle on my lap during church. I love that she's entering her 'girly' phase and prefers dresses and 'clip-clop' shoes to shorts and t-shirts. I love her enthusiasm for anything crafty and how much she *adores* books. Best of all, I love that she pretends to call "Schoon" on her toy cell phone when driving in the car!
Being an aunt is the absolute BEST!
Happy birthday, Niece-ling! Come for a sleep over soon, 'kay?
