So precious. She's obviously learned by watching her mama.
Beautiful! What a powerful reminder that children are always absorbing what goes on in their environments!On an unrelated note -- Meredith, I was wondering how you approach the decorating of a house from scratch. How do you go through a new house and determine what will go where, and what you will need to buy? Susanna
What a cutie! Happy May Day!
So, did you set up this project for her while you worked, or was she really doing this on her own?
Aw, how cute! She's just like her mama.
Oh, it was completely on her own. I think I had left this vase on the countertop.You can tell these photos were not staged, because I would have brushed her hair first!
Susanna, I've moved 5 times in 10 years. Most of our stuff goes from house to house. It takes me a few weeks to figure out the right placement.In this house I had to buy a new room full of furniture--couch, chairs, etc.I left it empty until I found the sofa at a thrift store. It was blue. So then I knew I could use two blue toile chairs from my sister's old apartment, stored at my mom's house.Things just kind of fall into place once you determine the biggest piece.
She is too sweet. When did she change from a baby to a little girl?
That's just too precious! She's trying to be like her mama, which I happen to think is a very worthy endeavor.
All I can say is, "Like Mother, Like Daughter."Mrs. L.
Oh my goodness! That is the sweetest thing!
She is a wee angel!So sweet!I've read your blog and I might have commented weeks ago as Nanny. That was when I was between blogs. I've opened a new one now. Feel free to come see me any time! ♥
How sweet! What a perfect little partner to decorate with!:)Kat
It just doesn't get any cuter than that! She's definitely been watching you and taking notes.I am amazed that you were able to take the photos without her stopping. Mine never let me get away with it. One of them always notices and the picture perfect scenen is over.
Meredith - I am tearing up looking at this. SHe is so precious and this was such a sweet reminder for me today. They really are always watching us, aren't they? Daughters will turn into their mothers...what better incentive to become who we want them to be? She is growing so fast - I bet she'll be a great big sister:)
To me this show the old say of "the fruit does not fall far from the tree" to be true. She has been watching you, paying attention, and she will grow to be a "little you" before you know it. I can see her painting her room 6-8 times before she gets it the right color, or moving the furniture around at all hours. She is a darling. Thank you for sharing the pictures. What a blessing our children are to us. True gifts from the Lord. Roxie
Your posts about flowers and vases has forced me to share another idea. Two weeks ago, visiting my MIL, the girls came in with periwinkle flowers for us--just the flowers, no stems. MIL set out a short but wide clear drinking glass with some water in it for them to use as a vase. As they started to fill it up, I realized how pretty the glass was partially filled with the purple flowers! (There were a few layers of them, so some were submerged. Won't last forever, but it still looked nice 2 days later when we left.)
Oh, Meredith, that second picture is my favorite!! :)It would make such a charming drawing... so sweet.Say, I just reviewed a book over at my blog, Doris Janzen's, Living More with Less, and have decided to start a read-along. Just thought I would invite you to join in if you like. No pressure though; I realize things are busy all around. It's just such an inspirational book I thought it would be fun. Stop by and have a look and join in if you like.Blessings,Nicole
I love this post.Like Mommy, no? She's beautiful.
You two are going to have so much fun over the years... she is just like you!!
OH MEREDITH! That is precious! I had tears watching that unfold.. and I am not even hormonal! LOL. Thank you so much for sharing that. Lovely, just lovely.
Simply beautiful. How precious. This post brought a smile to my face. She is adorable.Blessings,~Martie
Wow. You let her play with such an antique!
Adorable! Love the expression of concentration.
Is that not the sweetest thing. So beautiful.
Just precious, Meredith! And how wonderful that you were able to capture the moment for her to see many years from now.
What a precious moment - & such a sweet girl!
Like mother, like daughter! My girls bake because mom bakes. My son ties fishing flies because Dad does.When you had to purchase things for a new room- where did you find your items? Did it all come together fast or did you have to wait for the perfect items to pop up at a price you wanted to pay?
Beautiful!blessings, kari & kijsa
Everything in it's place, I'd call that perfection!
How lovely that you captured it all on film! My daughter Caroline is named for my great-grandmother. I love family names.
This is just too precious. How blessed we are to have these sweet little people in our lives.
What a sweet moment you captured! I love her dress =)
This girl is growing up knowing how to take her time and devote attention to detail in order to create something of beauty...and to celebrate the simple things.What a tribute to the atmosphere of peace and, as I said, beauty, that you've created in your home. I love it. I wish every child could grow up surrounded by such grace.We try, but I think we Kroekers are too casual and messy. When the kids are creative here, it involves a lot more cardboard and duct tape, and as you can imagine, the results are far less charming.
I love how she is so absorbed in her project. She is so focused! (And she is super cute, too.)Good for you guys! Happy Mother's Day (early).
ok, that is just too cute for words!!!
What a little sweetie! Thanks for sharing :-)
