Dagny is becoming such a big girl in mind and spirit. At 14 months, she's still small for her size, still not quite walking (can do 4-5 steps but prefers just crawling and is quite speedy), and is spoiled by her big brothers who hate hearing her cry. Alas, she thinks she's one of the boys. She just got a cute little Hello Kitty thermos just like her big bros and she always wants it, especially if she sees them with theirs. I often wonder what it must be like to be a little girl with two older brothers. I was the oldest of two, my little brother was 6 years younger so I grew accustomed to being a single child before he entered my life. I wasn't sure about him for the first 1-2 years and I was jealous of all the attention he got from our cousins who were living with us at the time. I can remember a few times we bonded and I know he missed me tremendously when I went off to college, but I sadly didn't miss him much as I was off experiencing new things in college. I took for granted my little sweet brother until it was too late, by the time I wanted to hang out with him, he was off doing cool new things, having adventures in New York, and all I could do was visit and buy him expensive things with all the money I was making at the time. HAHA.
After Church on Sunday, the kids and I were waiting for Andy to come downstairs. They had to find a way to pass the time, so they ended up playing with the curtains against the wall. Dagny thought this was the best thing ever. She could not stop laughing, standing against the wall playing with her big bros, and just being a part of it all.

After making some money from a print I designed for someone, I thought I'd go ahead and use the unexpected proceeds (I had volunteered to do it for free), and then my mom said she'd pay for them right around Dagny's birthday. Win-win!
