Getting all dressed up!

Grace has hit the stage where she wants to do everything herself. She is also developing strong opinions about what she wants to wear and since she is only 20 months old, this scares me to death!! What is she going to be like when she is 3 or worse yet, when she is 16?! Aaaggghh!!

Anyway, one morning after her bath she wanted to get herself dressed. She began by putting on one of Bob's dirty socks that she pulled out of the laundry basket. It went clear up to her hip! Then she put on his shoe and tried to walk around but the shoe kept falling off and the sock kept sliding down so while I was running downstairs for the camera she pulled those off and decided to try one of Nathan's pajama bottoms instead. One leg in, let's try for two!
Two legs in but something doesn't seem quite right. On the bright side, she is ready for the potato sack race!
Notice how she very cleverly ignored the blue clothes (at the bottom of the picture) that I picked out for her! She is at such a fun age right now. I love watching children starting to figure out the world around them.

SO sweet. I love that it takes them forever to get themselves dressed. If you are not in a hurry it is great time consuming activity:)
