Ellie much prefers girls to boys these days. Her little friend "other Ellie" is a current favorite. She still loves her little boy friends of course but after every play date with boys she says something like...

"they are so busy!" or
"they are rough!" or
"girls are quieter!"

It's so funny how without any prodding from me, she sees this all on her own. The difference between boys and girls at this age is staggering. Boys want to run and be rough and run and yell and run. Girls want to talk and play babies and pretend. It is neat to watch.

I tell my mom friends with boys that I may have it a little easier now but in about 8years they are going to have it WAY easier than me.

I wouldn't trade it for a second. I absoutely adore having a girl. All the emotion and pink and hair and everything else that goes along with it.

I can't wait until she can have little sleepovers and I can listen to her talk to her little girlfriends.

I can wait until she tells me she is going to a sleepover and ends up at a party instead. Ugh. As Jamie Lee Curtis says in Freaky Friday..."Make Smart Choices!"

Oh! and the absoutely adorable little girl in the picture is "other ellie's" little sister Sadie. Ellie kept wanting to hold her. Sadie was a trooper. One of these days, she is going to be tagging along begging to play with the big girls and Ellie will be the "cool best friend of her big sister"!

Fun times ahead indeed. Good thing I really like their parents. (wink to you Julie!)

8 years? Try 8 months. My girls started the drama at about 4! Chris came home one day and said "is she about to start her period or what?!"

I wish I was joking.
