Spectacle


As her shirt says, she is a little firecracker. She is bold, she is sassy, she makes her presence known. She has set off our glass break detector with her cries. She will arch her back and turn her limbs to jelly to avoid being made to do something she doesn't want to do. And she will stomp off in a huff when she doesn't get her way. She insists that she be acknowledged. And she has claimed her large, loud spot in my soul.

See the other spectacles over at Picture This.

I am also Looking At Life with my new photoblog.

Yes, yes, and yes. We're perfecting our jelly limbs at our house. I think she's so beautiful that she is quite the spectacle!

my little bean wore that shirt yesterday! (she was born july 4th so the family often refers to her as a little firecraker.)

That's a great picture! I can imagine the spectacle of one of the tantrums you described. Very funny! Isn't it great, the way we love them so fiercely no matter their behavior. And doesn't it suck that it's our job to modify that behavior. Big job.

OMG, that face! LOVE it! I could have written that exact same post about my daughter. Except for the glass break alarm part, only because we don't have one. :o)
