Dolls Are No Fun

There were several moments this weekend that captured the essence of Bunny, exactly who she is right now.

She was looking at some leaves we had found the day before. "What this leaf, momma?" That is a maple. "What this one?" That is an oak leaf. "What this one?" I don't know honey. "Let's go look it up on the computer, momma." Yes, that is right, at 2 2/3 she knows that you can find the answer to all things on the computer.

During the car ride to the pumpkin farm she was telling me everything she and daddy had played with that morning. Did you play with Dinos? "Yes." Did you play with playdough? "Yes." Did you color? "Yes." Did you play with dolls? "No. Dolls are no fun."

Watching me put on lipstick, "can I have some lipstick, momma?"

At the apple orchard, stuffing her mouth with an apple with one hand while picking up all the fallen apples and throwing them away with the other.

While on the hayride, "Are the cows gonna eat this hay later, momma?"

While picking pumpkins, "I don't wanna hold the pumpkin, its dirty."

Another family at the farm found a caterpillar which was passed around to all the kids on the hayride. While holding the caterpillar "its tickly momma. Can we keep him?" No honey he lives at the farm. "I love the caterpillar momma."

She loves dinos and hates dolls. She is fascinated by bugs and science but doesn't want to get dirty. She wants to learn about everything and wants to wear lipstick to look pretty while doing it. That is my Bunny.

It will be interesting to see how long the interest in bugs and science lasts....Bunny may turn into a girly girl when she gets older but hopefully she retains a good mix of both especially when Turtle arrives.

She is a doll, and she is going to keep you guessing for years to come...

it's amazing the little personalities that they develop - so different from ours, and so quickly.

She sounds just like my Mini, and reminds me of that song by Katie Perry "hot then cold, yes then no, in then out, up then down". :) Love it (your girl, not that song...although the song isn't half bad, lol)

Bugs and science and dinosaurs rock. As does a good lipstick. Yeah, Bunny!

She rocks. You go Bunny! She'll be a gorgeous, fashionable, brilliant scientist one day.

It's nice to capture those moments, as most often their passions are changing rather rapidly! Very sweet.
