Self Portrait Challenge -- Self-Portrait As My Mother

Okay, so it's a bit of a cop-out to use Ruby for SPC, but I really don't have the creative energy to play dress-up this month. So here is a portrait of Ruby dressed up as me. Get it? The little princess has become obsessed with prancing around in my shoes. I have to hide all shoes from her (hers, mine and Aaron's) otherwise she cries and whines until I put them on her feet. I'm constantly afraid that she'll do a head-dive into a sharp corner as she stomps around in my mary-janes, but I can't deny her the pleasure of dress-up. Note that she's also got one of my old purses, which she long ago claimed as her own. She likes to carry around an old set of keys.

And, here's a gratuitous shot of the growing girl's face, along with Mommy. I can't believe how fast her little brain is growing or how true all of those clichees about how quick they change are. Sigh.

p.s. Both photos are blurry because this kid never (NEVER!) sits still. Never.

I love it, love it, love it. I recently wrote an entry about little girls playing dress up and wearing mommy's shoes.

Darling photographs.

Oh Elizabeth - Ruby is turning into such a little girl. Her face has really grown up! I'm already in shock that Sadie is close to 2 years old, and Ruby isn't far behind.

Have you heard the mom news from around here? Chrissy, Mira, Jill and Natasha ALL pregnant. It's practically an epidemic!
