It all started when we got out the 2T size hand-me-downs from cousin Faith. Amelia thought the princess nightgown was so cute and she asked to wear her "Rella dress" most nights and often during the day.
When the weather turned cold we began layering it over her fuzzy pj's.
Amelia became obsessed with Cinderella and watched the movie over and over and began dressing up in fancy dresses all the time. Any fancy dress became a "Relly dress".
She got a princess crown for her birthday in September and once the dressing up started, she wanted to wear her "cown" all the time, too.
Grandma Lynette (Brian's mom) got Amelia a new dress for Christmas that had a matching dress for her baby doll. Oh, she loved it! She slept in it on Christmas Eve and wore it all Christmas day.
When the girls stayed with Grammie during Mackay's birth, Grammie bought Amelia a new "Relly nightgown" that gets worn both day and night.
The girl is so obsessed with Cinderella and princesses that she even wears her crown to bed!
Amelia can often be heard declaring, "I Relly!" She figured out how to get some clip-clop dress-up shoes on her feet and these have completed her ensemble.
I love this video because it captures Amelia's personality right now perfectly. Cute one minute, a nasty screamer the next, immediately followed by sugary sweet again. The girl can turn on a dime!
