I found the perfect spot to take pictures.
But Cupcake is a runner, so this was the only one I got.
I thought her new umbrella would be a fun prop, since
she played with it for hours yesterday. But that was yesterday.
Instead, there was lots and lots of twirling .. .
... and talking to the neighbor's dog.
I drafted my own pattern inspired by a combination of
this pattern from Shwin & Shwin that I've been wanting since it first came out,
And my little girl is getting opinionated and independent.
She likes to pick out her clothes (usually dresses) and put them on BY HERSELF.
So I made this dress roomy enough to put on easily
with no buttons or closures so she doesn't need my assistance.
As frustrated as I was, trying to take pictures, I'm happy how the dress turned out, with ducks on the top and chicks on the bottom. I'm happy that the weather was beautiful and the grass is so green. I'm happy that Daddy surprised us by being home on time. I'm happy that I have a sweet, healthy and energetic little girl.
