Little Lady

So this pisture is a little blurry but I had to post it because she is just too cute. Ivy is the sweetest little girl in the world! I love her so much and I am so glad that she is my little sister. She is just so funny. She will be in the other room and you will hear her fall down or something and she yells. "I'm okay!" and goes about her business. The other day my dad said she was running down the hall and ran straight into the corner of a door. She wasn't hurt too badly I guess because she recovered, patted the wall, looked intently at it and said, "Sorry door!" and then ran off. It's so funny to hear what little kids are thinking. She can be in the middle of a conversation with you and she will just pause and look at you and say, "Annie, I love you." and then go back to what she was going to say. The other day she told me I was her best friend. She is always complimenting people, which is usually the opposite of what kids do! They are so innocently and brutally honest that usually it's something you don't want to hear. But she always strokes my hair saying "it's beautiful" and tells me I have pretty eyes. But it's her little voice and her mannerisms that go along with it that just melt your heart! My husband always calls her "little lady" and she will always remind him, "No, I'n Ivy". But when he calls her Ivy, it's "I'n Lil' Lady". I love her SO much! She's obsessed with babies, tomatoes (they bribe her with tomatoes when she wont eat her other food on your plate. It's "just have one more bite of macaroni and then you can have a tomato"....), and her blankie. She is daring, outgoing, and strongwilled, and she is the best!
