Your baby sister is not a toy–okay, maybe sometimes

I just found Mabel finishing up a project I hadn’t even known she was working on: taking photos for a paper doll of Hazel. She put tape on the wall to show where Hazel’s head, hands, and feet should go and then dressed her up in various outfits. She also put different shoes on her and took a photo of Hazel with her favorite teddy bear. She says Hazel was surprisingly compliant once she got going. I’m impressed. I’ve thought of doing a project like this for my kids before, but never gotten around to it.

And here’s Mabel one of the unused photos I took for Mabel’s self-portrait drawing:

And here’s Ike demonstrating his one-armed Hazel hold:
