Claiming the cube!

I used to live in the East Village. So we took Princess A for a visit and she was very interested in the Astor Place cube. She had to climb on top of it and claim it for herself.

This is mine. BACK OFF!

She stood there just staring at everyone like she was the queen of the East Village.

But if anyone came near the cube she screamed at them. It was a sight to see.

I can sit by myself.

Then we took the subway home and Princess A decided she was big enough to sit down by herself. She was very happy with herself.

I love New York.

Days like this make me really happy that I get to raise my daughter in New York City!

    Really a little princess. 🙂

    Even though I´m not the pink-loving girl, I like the dress. The tutu-skirt (is this a real word?) is just cute. When it comes to kid/toddler-clothing, I´m totaly into girly aka princess-dresses with tutus, ruffles, (wide) skirts and so on. 🙂

      Thanks Francesca. The funny thing it is actually a night gown I found in the clearance rack at the Gap. I love tutus but could never sleep in one and Princess A gets too distracted to wear a tutu to bed. We think it looks more like a dress anyway.

    I love that she is wearing a crown! That just completes the outfit!

      She is obsessed with it and we bought it by accident.

    It amazes me at how much she has grown in the short time I’ve been following your blog. She totally owns New York!
