A Pocket Full of Posies.....or whatever else she can fit in there

Pockets, or "Pockicks"...as Halle calls them, are Halle's newest obbsession. It's getting so bad that she now refuses to wear clothes that do not have them.

I first noticed her interest in storing tiny treasures when Ella was just 8 days old. I had taken the kids to their first play-date in the park since Ella's birth. While there I laid Halle down on a blanket for a diaper change. I was very surprised and shocked when I opened her diaper to reveal a handful of nickels, dimes, and pennies laying in the soiled cloth! Luckily it was only #1! I couldn't help but laugh at what I saw. It was just the beginning of things to come and it wasn't the last time that I got paid to change her diaper! Ha ha!

She soon discovered that some of her clothes had built in places to store stuff and she quickly learned how to pack them full of "treasures" from around the house. She often comes running up to me with her pockets so full and tight that she can't get her hand in to remove the items! You never know what you're going to find in there...money, army men, bits of paper, hairbows, etc...

Getting Halle dressed each day is becoming a challenge. The first thing she does is say "Pockicks mommy, Pockicks". Sometimes I will try to put on a skirt or pair of shorts that don't have pockets and try to hand her a purse as a substitute but so far she hasn't bought it! I even made her a sweet little dress last week. When I was finished sewing I brought it to her to show her. The first thing she said was "Pockick mommy". I knew then that there was no way I was going to get that thing on her so back to the sewing room I went (aka the dining room table). I then proceded to cut and sew a pocket onto the dress. When I took it to her the second time around she grinned and graciously allowed me to put it on her! What am I going to do with this girl?! She knows what she wants....that's for sure!
