D is for dresses, dolls, and dressing up dolls.

D is for dresses and dolls. And “duh”. And doilies- but we aren’t going there yet. I’ll let Micah discover doily-dom on her own. Micah has dressed herself since the age of two- and Milla is currently emulating her early independent dressing patterns. We got into the excitement of dressing and dolls by starting with the coloring handout below.

Then we picked a few printable paper dolls to print (yes, I ran out of printer ink in the process) and Micah played with paper dolls for the rest of the evening. And I overdid myself a bit in the free paper doll hunt- though each brought a new delight and character into our lives.
