This little chica is mimicking my every move.

My facial expressions, my mannerisms… everything!

For example… the other day I was feeling a little stressed and told her “Mommy needs to take a deep breath!”

I took a deep breath… then she copied me and took a deep breath. And now… she takes deep breaths all day…. Weird!

One thing she’s doing is EATING!


Anything I put in front of this little girl, she eats.

Even if she’s not hungry and she sees me eating… she wants to eat.

She wants to do what I do…

This made me think…. if she’s sees me mindlessly snacking… she’ll learn that habit… and become a mindless snacker.

I need to be a good role model for her.

I will be a good role model.

I will raise this beautiful girl to listen to her body and love her body.

I will set an example and be the woman I hope she grows into someday.

She will do what her mama does…

When I laugh… she laughs…

So far I have a very happy baby… and I’d like to think its because I’m happy 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

    it’s amazing how much they mimic, which makes you think thousand times before you eat, say, or do anything! seriously, being a role model is the hardest thins ever… my son stops me from eating junk (when I crave it) because I don’t him to eat it too…
    She’s adorable!

    SO CUTE!!!! She’s precious. I love the pictures. Such a great point about mindlessly eating. She’s clearly at a vulnerable stage where she can be sucked into bad habits. You’re a good mother for taking note and watching your actions.
