What Can She Do?

This is no longer the question.  What can’t she do?  I am proud to say PM can now, at 2 months shy of 4 years, remove all of her clothes and put of different ones.  I’ve seen two year olds do this plenty of times.  What’s the big deal?  Can they do it one handed??  I didn’t think so.  Never mind the buttons and zippers (you try doing those one-handed!).  We try to remind her to use both hands, but when left to her own devices, she mostly does it all left handed.  I love that I can give her something to wear and ask her to put it on all by herself.  (PS – big time saver when trying to get 4 kids out the door in the morning!)  What can’t she do?  The list is getting shorter all the time.

What else is great about getting dressed yourself?  Putting on your own princess dress!

   About the photos:  Shot with my Canon Rebel XT using the 50mm prime lens (top) or the 28-80mm (bottom two).  This last shot was natural lighting, which I prefer when I can get it.  The McDonald’s play room has nice big windows!!
