I swear she thinks there is an invisible door. If I put her in her room, she will rarely come out. Instead, she will just come to the edge of her door, lay down, and cry.
Or you will start to notice that there are a lot of pictures with her sitting at the counter, many involving food. It's one of the few times she is sitting still enough to get a clear shot.
And while she loves her babies, she also has an older brother. That means she likes her cars and trucks just as well.
There was one morning where Blake simply woke up grumpy. As I had her sitting by me, she put her hair in her face and over her eyes. If I tried to move it out of her face, she would scream at me, then proceed to pull all of her hair back over her eyes.
Whenever I sit down to play the piano, Blake immediately jumps up right beside me. And it has to be on my right hand side. I'm not sure what my music sounds like without her accompaniment any more. Luckily that only lasts a few moments, then she gets down. Will and Blake have come up with this idea, that whenever I play the piano, they have to spin around the living room. And the louder I play, the faster they spin.
For the past week or so, Blake refuses to wear jammies to bed. Instead, she always asks for a dress.
We didn't do much for her birthday, but of course we had cake. Will was very helpful at blowing out candles.
And even though I may make it sound like she is always throwing tantrums, screaming, or just a grumpy kid....she really isn't. She definitely has her moments, but mostly she really is happy.
And other times she's just kind of like this....
She loves slurpees and often asks for one when we drive past 7-Eleven. Every once in a while, we will stop to indulge.
The way her hair fell made it look like a mullet. Just something about it drove me crazy, so I had the bottom layer cut so that it was even with the rest. It was hard to me to have it cut, but it made a huge difference and I am happy that I did it. It has already grown a lot since then.
This is a picture I took a week or two before I had it cut. It doesn't look bad in this picture, but there was just something funny about it. It's crazy how long it really was.
Still on the subject of hair, while I try to do her hair and keep it out of her face, sometimes you just gotta let it go. Blake gets a kick out of pulling out clips, flowers, headbands, ponytails, everything. Often it's not worth the fight and she ends up looking pretty homeless.
She loves to brush her teeth and walks around the house with her toothbrush.
But recently she has learned how to push the doors open and she will run outside.
Blake loves dogs. She loves to point them out, try to pet them, play with them, etc.
This cute little girl definitely takes after her mama in that she loves to read. Almost any problem or tantrum or bad mood can be immediately fixed with story time. We love going to the library and picking out new books.
She is very creative and does well entertaining herself.
Blake is full of energy and is constantly keeping us on her toes. We are always guessing what she will come up with next. We love you.
