Dramatic...


Time to start on a new journal for Avery, since I finished her last one.  This book is a little larger than her others, and I like the bigger size.  This spread is about her many DRAMATIC moods.  This girl is so melodramatic, so much more so than the boys ever were!  Girls definitely are wired differently, of which I'm constantly being reminded!

While I was working on the page, I kept thinking about this "stubborn" face that she makes.  Noah makes it, too.  They furrow their brows and look at you from underneath, trying to look so mean.  I looked through an old photo album and found this photo of myself from the 1970's.  I guess I can see where they're getting it from now!














And it's time again for Little Vintage Style!  (I'll also link up to Small Style on Thursday.)

 
 For a change of scenery, I took some photos of Avery playing in our playroom this week. I pulled out a couple vintage toys, and let her go at it! 

 This little sundress is perfect for the summertime with the cute little boat applique.  And it's also perfect for taking the babies for a walk!

 This stroller was my sister's when she was young, and it's been in my parents' attic.  Avery hasn't been too interested in dolls until now, but this stroller is just the right height and weight for her, and she loves pushing it around!

 Bye-bye for now!

so we obviously have the same taste....girl clothes so similar and I think our children have all the same vintage toys. great idea putting the tank under the romper in another small style post. i haven't thought of that ... but it is a lot less revealing. :) come see me again sometime!

Avery is so precious! I love that little sundress.

So funny that she got that look from you. My kids have a furrowed brow look, too and we call it "the Douglas" because that's my dad's name. He does it, my sister and I did it, and now all my kids do it. Hilarious!

Thanks so much for linking up at Small Style! :)
