that was the name of a library book she picked this last round and it's so fitting for this stage.
out of the corner of my eye i catch her mimicking me when she takes care of her dolls, or maggs.
i overhear her telling them the same things i tell her.
the same goes for brushing hair.
i have her lay down on my legs in the bath so i can wash her hair.
when she's in by herself i hear her talking to her mermaid "now lay back...i have to wash your hair. it's okay!"
yesterday morning, first thing...
eliza - "i want clothes!"
me thinking "seriously, i'm not even out of bed yet, and we usually always stay in our jammies!"
she changes a few times then says "no, i want a green shirt...like you."
shirt and pants had to be as close to my jammies as possible...and she had to tell krista about it on the phone.
just like mama.
