[Girl Moms] On Wednesdays We Wear Pink... and make-up!




Hi, I'm Amanda!  I blog over at Kids and Cabernet.  I blog about my kids,  favorite wine finds, decorating, and basically anything that comes to mind.  I started blogging in August of this year and quickly became a fan of Erinn's blog and her Girl Mom Series.

From the moment I found out I was pregnant I knew I wanted a daughter.  I grew up with it just being my mom, my sister and I; we were all so close and had such a bond and I wanted to have a daughter so I could share that same bond with her too.  Luckily, I got my wish and gave birth to the most beautiful little girl I could ever imagined!



I've love every moment of watching her grow up.  I'm having a blast seeing her turn into a young lady and getting to know her.  Elyse is caring, funny, sassy, quick mined, and smart!  Now that she's able to communicate so well, she's constantly telling us that she loves us, drawing us pictures and always wants to match what we're wearing.  She is a total girly-girl like her mom she loves clothes, tea parties, doing her hair, playing with makeup (and surprisingly she does a great job applying it haha) and everything about princesses.  She's also a wonderful big sister to her brother.  She's always hugging, kissing and holding his hand and making sure that he's ok.




Being a girl mom is great,  it's everything that I imagined and much more.  I'm looking forward to the next stages with her and I'm so blessed to be her mom and happy that I have a front row view of watching her turn into a beautiful lady inside and out.



Thank you Erinn for having me!

  5. Love! I have a daughter (18 months) with another on the way. Being a sister myself I was so happy to find out I will get to parent TWO little girls! Thrilled is an understatement. I cannot wait to share tea parties and dress up with my girls. I am happy you got to experience it with your sweet daughter. LOVE HER NAME. It is in the running for our second daughter.
