Daughter Day

When Jada was born all those millenia (5 1/2 years) ago I was so surprised she was a girl. I thought for sure I was going to have about 5 boys. Just cos. Days like today make me so so thankful I have a daughter. It's been full of embroidery, buttercup daisy chains, and this:

I was vacumming upstairs and Monte (20 months) was crying, I told Jada to get him some food!! (I know, I know...bad associations etc)...I came downstairs and found this! I didn't even know she could DO this! The plate with the banana chopped up is for Monte, the other 2 are for her and Ty. Oh my heart...she is so sweet.

Last night Jada suddenly decided (at 5pm!) that she absolutely urgently needed to do some sewing. I threw my embroidery hoop at her, gave her some manky threads (6 for $1 kind) and gave her some basic instructions (ie put the needle back through on the same side you just put it through, etc) and left her to it so I could get dinner.

She had a play and showed so much promise that today I let her have a nicer piece of fabric to use and even generously gave her all the manky threads as her very "own special ones" :)

This is the finished product. After ONE little tiny practice! The Ladybug was completely her idea also...I think it's brilliant....the kid's got mad skillz :) (...btw, she made it "for Daddy")

And then, we made daisy (buttercup) chains...Her Majesty Princess Buttercup:

Just lovely :)
