Middle Child

Fashion plate. This is Jada. She insists that these colors really do go together. Jada starts school next year and I predict some compromises on her Mom's part. Jada has a mind of her own.
She changes clothes many times in one day. Her little personality is just as colorful. She was my helper as I learned what to do while taking care of her and her sister while big sister was in school.

She likes bacon and sausage for "bresskiss". My attempts at hair ....... well, see for yourself.


When I asked about diaper disposing procedures, Jada informed me that "We just throw them out in the snow." Lots of giggles, then, "No, just kidding."

On Thursday Jada told me that her Daddy was coming home the next day and that she was going to miss me. I got lots and lots of hugs and kisses. She told me over and over again that she would miss me so much and that she loved me. I can still feel those arms around my neck.......

Friday came and the Jada of hugs and kisses was long gone. It was all business and she told me matter-of-factly that she would not miss me and did not love me. As the time for me to leave grew closer she became very demanding and tearful. As I tried to get her dressed for the trip to the airport and she realized that I was going soon she threw her arms around my neck and proclaimed her love and told me that she was lying about missing me. So dramatic.
There will always be drama around this little girl! I am missing her funny little voice and giggles today. I have an assignment, though. I have to make some dresses and lots of ruffles "like a tutu".

There's a lovely children's book called "Ella Sarah Gets Dressed." I recommend it for Jada and her mom. It's a sweet story and my bet is that you will see a lot of your little granddaughter in it! She is just a living doll! No matter what she wears she will be the height of fashion because she's got the attitude to pull it off! Bless her for being a trendsetter and not a follower!

I agree. those colors absolutely do go together. She is such a cutie and you are so lucky.

Such a sweetie with a mischievous little smile. Those eyes really sparkle. You can tell the wheels are really turning behind them. She will be in charge of the classroom next year when she starts school.

I think we have those same tights, often with the same color palette! She is gorgeous; I bet it won't matter what the color scheme is...

I'm sure you're exhausted from keeping up with them, but it sounds like you had so much fun. What I'm wondering is who puts away all the clothes after she changes?

These little girls are just gorgeous! Your grandchildren are lovely altogether.

Absolutely too cute! I can hardly wait until Kaitlyn is old enough for me to spoil with all those girly things! I'm hoping she has a baby sister because two will be twice as nice!

She has such a personality! LOL! Cracks me up! I can't imagine how hard it is to leave these little girls! Or your other grand children, either! Heck, what am I talking about? I leave my grand daughter, too, and boy it hurts my heart!
