Eden's Tag

My friend Kara Barnett tagged me to do six things about Eden. So here it goes.


1. Eden sings. She makes up words if she doesn't know the song. She will sing/talk like "do I have to go to bed?" or "what is for dinner?" She is a good singer and beats all of us at High School Musical Sing Star. Even though she doesn't know the words she hums in perfect pitch. The funniest thing ever is to listen to Eden sing while she is listening to her MP3 player. (By the way, this song that is playing, read my mind by the Killers is one of her favorite songs)

2. Eden's favorite foods are quesadillas and yogurt. She also loves to eat at Subway, she prefers it over McDonalds. For some reason she thinks McDonalds is "germy".

3. Eden isn't afraid of much, except for animals, bugs and especially worms.

4. Eden has her finger on the pulse of fashion...four year old fashion that is. Her outfits totally reflect her personality.

5. Eden has to snuggle with me every morning, in my bed, before she starts her day. So that means if I am up and going before she is, I have to climb back into bed and snuggle her for a few minutes. The funny thing is she comes in with her eyes almost closed, pretending like she is sleep walking.

6. Eden is the funniest kid. She makes up knock-knock jokes. She talks with her hands and her hips. She thinks she is a teenager. Her famous phrase is "Just to tell ya...."

(I took these pictures earlier today, after Eden went to her friend, Jane's, princess birthday party. As we pulled into the garage Eden saw her umbrella and wanted to show me how princesses walk in the rain. People were driving by and waving at her. I had to document these moments, they were just too precious.)

Those are great pictures and I love that people were waving at her...she DOES look very regal in her princess dress. I love how she instinctively knows how to walk like a princess in the rain.

I think it is cute she wants to snuggle...and how you sometimes have to climb back in bed to do so. They kept telling us in college how crucial those early years are...I can't help but think that even though it can be time consuming your love and attention are helping to give her such a great sense of self. Sometimes in the morning my 4 year old, Brian, wants me to sit on the couch with him and I keep reminding myself that those few minutes will have a lasting effect on him even though I want to run around and get a million things done.

I love your pictures...great job! And she is a very beautiful princess.

Oh my heavens! What a cute little princess...the little lady in red.

AMY said...

I just love the fact that she's 4 and she has the perfect shoes to match the outfit. One day I hope I have a girl to go to princess parties.

Love you, Edee.

Now why on earth would Eden think McD's was germy? You wouldn't have anything to do with that baffling observation of hers?

BEAUTIFUL pictures and awesome dress. It makes me excited to have a litte girl.

Those pictures are PERFECT! I loved that you included the "just to tell ya..." and the talking with her hips... those are a few of my favorite things about Eden. We love that girl! Why didn't I ever have such a knockout princess dress when I was a kid?

Erin said...

That was so fun to read (I read it the day you posted--just haven't had time to comment!). :) She is so adorable. I love the first picture--it's frame-worthy for sure!

Looks like she's got her mom's love of great shoes! She's a beauty! We may have to do some matchmaking...my Solomon loves to sing and make jokes too. He is singing "Rockin' the Suburbs" right now.

Hey! Did you design your blog? I am looking for a new look. Where did you get yours??? :)

These photos of Eden are amazing. She came up to me before Stake Conference today and chatted with me for a bit, then she said, "Well, I better go now." She was acting like such an adult, it was really cute and Eden-ish.
