As my twins age, it is getting easier to see just what their true personalities are. And Lisa has made it clear that she likes to be girly. She wears a skirt every. single. day. And cries if we make her wear something so awful as shorts or jeans (when all the skirts need to be washed). She is also really into princesses and fairies.
A prime example of her overt girliness can be seen in the following videos. When my friend Tanya came to visit, she brought the girls some new clothes! The first night she got here Lisa was already asleep, but Alison was still awake. She went ahead and showed the new clothes to Alison, and Alison was like, “Eh, cool. New clothes.” And wasn’t overly excited about it, at all.
But, the next day when Lisa got to look in the bag at what Tanya brought, she was very excited! Oohs and ahs came out in abundance, along with words like cute, pretty, and beautiful. She even exclaimed, “I love this!” a few times too. She pressed the clothes against her chest and twirled with them. Tanya had found a girl after her own heart. Ha.
Josh was able to capture the following video (split in two, so excuse the slight overlap) of Lisa going through the bags:
She’s also girly in other ways, like her extreme klutziness, not liking to walk or run for long periods of time, and her overly dramatic nature, especially when hurt. She also is very motherly towards her baby brother and is very into drawing and music (but not so much dancing – that’s Alison’s forte).
I love my very girly girl Lili. She’s adorable in so many ways.
