these are a few of my favorite things

Kinley has a new found love of brushing her teeth. She wants to brush them 5 times a day. She wants to take the toothbrush and tooth paste with her in her diaper bag everywhere she goes. I definitely think it has to do with the fact that we just moved her stool in front of her sink and she can now see herself in the mirror, open the drawer to get her toothbrush and toothpaste out herself, and reach her toothbrush to the water all on her own. She wants me to turn on the water "again...again...again" so she can reach it. She also likes it when I brush her hair while she is brushing her teeth. I admit, I use the term "hair" generously...but, she is starting to grow a little and she must love the way it feels on her head. So, #1 new thing she Kinley loves it to brush her teeth while I am brushing her hair.
Kinley still LOVES to help with the laundry. Remember this post and this one? But, she took it to another level today and climbed in there long enough to sit down, take her shoes off, and make herself comfy.
And, we still LOVE Princess and the Frog. Beauty and the Beast is getting up there...but, Princess and the Frog is the all-time fav. She loves to dance to the songs and it is so precious when she wants to climb in my lap and watch with me. Those still, quiet moments are few and far between with this crazy child but, they are so special.
The fact that she delights in the simple things brings me so much joy. My heart is longing to keep her this sweet and pure. I can only hope God and His Word will help do it for me.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.
Psalm 119:9

That's the spirit Kinley! Keep it up! I love a girl that loves oral hygiene... and of course, the appreciation of good hair maintenance.

Look at all that hair! Such a big girl brushing her teeth and hair. You're doing a great job raising that precious angel.

what a sweet post! Kinley needs to come teach Ella some dental hygiene tips. Brushing teeth is not a favorite thing at our house:)

She DOES have so much hair! She just looks so much bigger than the last time we saw her. Can't wait for Thanksgiving and for Kinley to meet Simonds :)
