Pearl's Outfit

Pearl picked her own clothes for the first time today.  When I went into her room this morning, she played with Axel for a bit, and then pointed at her closet.  I asked her what she wanted and she said "Be-lah shirt."  Be-lah is how she says her cousin Maleah's name.  Anything that was handed down to her from Maleah is always called a Be-lah shirt, Be-lah pants, or Be-lah dress.
She has a lot of items handed down from Maleah so I started pulling them out until I found the one she wanted.  It was a size 4T tank top.  Not exactly her size or weather appropriate, but I gave it to her anyway.  She asked me for a little help getting her pajamas off and then put it on.  Then she asked to see her pants.  So I showed her all of the pant options and she chose a green pair with Dalmatians printed on them.
It felt like something that should be documented.  I pulled my phone out of my pocket and took a few quick photos of her first chosen outfit.  She was very happy with her choice and I loved watching her little mind work.
