Oh Lydia...

This is Lydia.  She is 2.5 years old.  She is... well curious about all things

Destine...she has smeared this on herself, walls, beds and furniture no less than 437 times despite my efforts to hide the darn stuff.

Hard to see but this was an entire bottle of hand sanitizer, thankfully it was travel size.  However, 2 days later she did drench herself with a regular sized bottle...clean freak!

and Powdery.
My brand new makeup.  Not shown...the lip gloss she later smeared all over the walls!

Jello anyone?  You can't see all the boxes in this picture but she emptied 9 boxes... in 30 seconds!   And she had to get through this barrier first... and don't think she just pushed that card table over to get through, since there is a bookshelf and a 50 pound barrel of wheat holding that table there, she climbed over it instead!

She also loves clothes.  So much so that she changes them 52 times a day and tries to get as many items on at a 1 time as she can.
The best part about this picture is that we were running late to get somewhere when she came out in this 4 shirted ensemble.  I didn't have time to change her so she was out in public in this beauty!
Oh Lydia, I hope you have a 2 year old just like you someday!  Life would be boring without you, I love you!!!

Holy Moly! I thought it was bad after the hand sanitizer picture, but then I saw your makeup... that's when it really gets frustrating... when it's something expensive. And then the jello... WOW! Good thing they come with angel faces, hu? She is so pretty, even in the 4 shirt ensemble :)

Oh, you weren't kidding about Little Miss Lydia were you! Ha, I went from thinking she is so big, to ew I bet she smelled like desetin for days, to oh no not the make-up! That broke my heart, we all know how it feels to get new make-up! To wow, I can't believe she got past that clever barier! Only a few more days until the reunion! Can't wait!
