The moment my daughter Grace was born she started crying, the loud wailing crying only a newborn can do and it was relieving to hear knowing her lungs were working properly. The nurse placed her in my arms and I said: “ mommy’s here” and she instantly stopped crying! She knew my voice ! How amazing is that?! We didn’t need to bond because we already had for 9 months!
She also was instantly a girly-girl! Mostly because I placed bows on her head almost immediately after birth (please don’t judge me I couldn’t resist). ! She never tried to take them off even as a toddler… maybe she was just used to having them on her head by then …. or maybe because she was always a girly girl at heart…. its now hard to say if it was forced or not, nature or nurture …who knows??… But regardless I have my little princess… she loves her bows, and everything pink and girly. She takes ballet , and gymnastics and wants to wear pink clothes every day to pre-school and spends way too much time getting her hair perfect for school.
Because she is my only girl ( and three boys) I am trying my best to soak up all these sweet little girl moments. I have paw patrol toys and toy story (buzz lightyear) toys that I can easily pass down to the next two little guys in line.. but once those princess dresses stop fitting… or that barbie dream house stops being played with … thats it … its all done.. I don’t get to see them being played with a second or third time. That is what makes having only one girl so precious to me.
This christmas she asked for a few gifts but “ Santa” thought of one special one that she didn’t even ask for ! It was a table, three chairs (one for each of her best friends/neighbors) and a real porcelain blush pink and gold tea set. She was so excited to have a real porcelain “big girl” tea set. Although it is real porcelain we tried to keep it placed on her table in her room but as hard as we tried to keep it safe her two year-old brother James already broke one of the adorable white porcelain spoons ! So… up on the shelf it stays until she is ready to play with it and her little brother is out of the way!
She is growing way too fast! These pictures actually take my breath away! It’s true what they say that the days are long and the years are short when you have children. My Grace is so mature for her age! She always has been! She is an old soul type of person. I guess that is why her name Grace is so fitting for her!
I am so happy she loves her tea set! She tells everyone it was her favorite gift from Santa! It is real blush pink porcelain with a gold trim and even more beautiful in person than online. It comes with saucers, and real porcelain spoons. I couldn’t have been more happy with the tea set and neither could she! The price is unbelievable! I would have expected to pay more for the quality! We are so excited to share it with you! It would make the most perfect birthday gift , christmas gift or special occasion gift for a young girl ! See below for links to the tea set, table, chairs, rug and even the milk glass vase and flowers!
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.
