My Little Girly Tomboy

For the past year or so I've been pretty convinced that Grace is going to be a tomboy. She loves to be outside and play rough. Put her next to the toughest boy and she will run just as fast as him. She doesn't shy away when a boy pushes her and pain rarely ever phases her. She refused to wear anything I would try to put in her hair. Dresses got in her way and while she liked pretty shoes, they were kicked off quickly because they weren't comfortable enough to play in. Not that there's anything wrong with being a tomboy, but I'm pretty much a complete girly girl. I would much rather be inside than out, and I have to admit that I was so excited to have a little girl to dress up!

The last couple of weeks I've started to notice a change in her attitude. She went from refusing to wear bows and pulling out any ponytail I tried to put in to asking me to put flowers in and letting me braid and style her hair!
Sorry for the blurry cell phone pic, but this is my first attempt at a french braid in her hair. She has REALLY thin hair so it's not easy!
Fun ponytail style. I'm going to have to work on getting the styles neater! I'm still trying to do them in a hurry before she gets bored and moves.
She got a dress up set for her birthday and had no interest in it until the other day when she brought me the shoes and asked me to put them on her. They even have a bit of a heel and she walked all over the house with them. I'm pretty convinced that she walks in heels better than I do at this point!

At a recent consignment sale, I bought her several Disney princess nightgowns with little hope of her ever wearing them. Much to my surprise, she asked to wear one the other night. And she looked adorable! She's asked to wear them several times since then.

I hope she keeps some of the tomboy in her, but I'm really excited that she's starting to get into some of the girly stuff as well!
