Just Like Her Big Sister

Adelie LOVES her big sister.  She follows her around.  She borrows her shoes.  She plays with her toys.  She imitates the things that she does.  Although Adelie is definitely her own little person, she often wants to be just like her big sister.  So it should come as no surprise that Adelie loves princesses.  Although her vocabulary isn't extensive, Adelie can identify and name Cinderella, Aurora, Anna, Belle, and Ariel.  But her absolute favorite?  Elsa!  She is always putting on Staley's 'Elsa' shoes.  She always requests her 'Elsa' bow.  In the car, she always wants to listen to the 'Elsa' song.  And she can always find the 'Elsa' movie and the 'Elsa' books on the shelves.

The other day, I bought Adelie a pair of pajamas that had 5 of the Disney princesses on them.  She absolutely loves those pajamas.  She wears them while pointing out and naming all the princesses she is wearing.  The first night she wore them, Zach woke her up in the morning to get ready to go to the baby-sitters.  As he was starting to remove her pajama top, Adelie asked, "Off?"  Zach said, "Yes, we have to take your pajamas off so you can get dressed."  And Adelie burst into tears.

There are many things about Staley and Adelie that are different.  They definitely have their own unique strengths, likes, dislikes, personalities...  But there are also some things that make them the same.  And apparently a love of princesses is one of those.
