The Toddler Laws of Property

This is a shirt that my friend Cami gave me when I was pregnant with Jilly. I loved it, and have been waiting for Jilly to get big enough to wear it. Well, she's been doing so for a while and last night I decided I needed to blog about it, because I'm sure all mamas of toddlers can relate! :-)

It reads:
The Toddler Laws of Property
1. If I like it, it's mine.
2. If it's in my hand, it's mine.
3. If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
4. If it looks just like mine, it's mine.
5. If I think it's mine, it's mine.

And then, because I can never resist picture spam, here are some picutres of Jilly.

Jilly loves our camera and will walk around with it "taking pictures". Well, we turned it on a couple times for her, to see what she would do and she surprised us by actually taking pictures! My baby is (so not) a photography genius! ;-)

This is the couch.

And these red things are her feet, along with a pillow.

The other day, my mom tooks Jilly and I out for some shopping and time at Granny's. I'd decided to dress Jilly in this super cute outfit from Talbot's Kids that my mom got a while ago, because it was cold and I wanted something new. It kinda freaked me out, because to me, she looked all ready for school, and she's not even 2! My baby looked all grown up to me. Plus, the outfit is so cute, I needed a picture.

As soon as I wouldn't let Jilly hold the camera, she started throwing a tantrum and wouldn't let me get a good picture. So here's Tantrum Girl:

This is a better photo of her face, but doesn't really show off the outfit. Oh well.

This is from when we went to Silver Lake Park a few weeks ago with Playgroup. We were at the beach part and I stripped Jilly down so she could go in the water. She found the stroller just as fascinating.

And last but not least. a big fat cheesy grin from my kid who LOVES getting her picture taken.

Joshua, Lori, and Mikey. said...

That shirt is so right! Mike's not there yet (thank goodness) but Holly, the girl I babysit during the day, is.

Mike loves cameras, too. I have a ton of pictures on my camera phone that he has taken. Some you can tell what they are, some you can't. I have a hard time taking pictures of him sometimes because all he wants is the camera! So, yeah, totally understand that one.

I KNOW! Why do they grow up so fast? ha.. well, in our case it's good that Ava is growing up more and more since another is on the way.. but still.. Jilly is only 21 months and all ready for school?!! yikes. I know how you feel. And for the overnight least you made it a whole night without your baby. I havent even done that. I'm too attached. Glad you and Steve had a good time! And.. good to hear you guys are well!
