Gracie's Baby Doll

This picture shows Gracie with a paper doll wrapped in a napkin. Poor Gracie needs a real baby doll from Santa.

We live in a house full of trucks, planes, trains and automobiles. Jack has Legos and blocks and gadgets of all sorts. And while Grace will play with them she really loves girly stuff.

It is hilarious that both my kids are drawn to traditional toys for their genders. Jack discovered trucks at a play date when he was 10 months old. He fell in love with all things that go. Before that point we didn't have any trucks at our house. I had this theory about raising kids with gender neutral toys and letting them decide for themselves what they like. But now we probably have 100 trucks because Jack discovered what he liked and I supported that.

And Grace did the same thing. She loves babies! She loves Minnie Mouse. She is all girl. And I had nothing to do with it.

So this Christmas Santa is going to have to bring Grace a baby doll and some girly toys. Otherwise she is going to start tucking Jack's trucks into bed.

She is such a cute and sweet girl! Love her!
