we recently enjoyed a lovely spring afternoon outside in our backyard. and what do you think my girl was doing almost the whole time? that's right. drawing rainbows. one right after the other. like our budding little artist always has (remember this post from january 08?).
for lack of a better word, she's been 'obsessed' with rainbows for as long as i can remember. we think it must have started when she was a baby and she would stare totally fixated on the rainbow that the prism in our bedroom window displayed on the ceiling. and over the years, we have had rainbow hats and rainbow sweaters and rainbow dolls and everything else you can imagine (notice the rainbow finger-knitted bracelet she has on). now she wants a rainbow umbrella. and to find a rainbow tree. and rainbow hair when she grows up. and don't even ask what happens when she stumbles upon something that is NOT in correct rainbow color order. oh my.
yes indeed, she is our rainbow girl. and we wouldn't have it any other way...
happy rainbows to you!
