Gigi the Fairy Bird

A few weeks ago the cute twin sisters, Heather and Heidi, behind the Fairy Birds book asked if they could catch Gigi in action trying to be a little Fairy Bird. Fairy Birds are Fairy Godmother’s in training. Like, in case you didn’t know. Hahaha.

Gigi and I read the book, Fairy Birds, the night before our photo shoot, and she really got into the concept of earning her “givie feather” by doing nice things and “giving” to those around her. Even better than the feather were the wings she got to wear while she did these nice things! I loved brainstorming with Ginger about how she could give to those around her.

Ginger is only 3, so I haven’t really gotten into the concept of service much with her, past what she can do for ME. But I really loved having a way to start this–-what I hope will be–lifelong conversation about looking for ways to show love to those around us.

Obviously Gigi had the best ideas ever.

First she decided to make some “Gigi Donuts” for her friends. (I encouraged the use of the mini Gigis because I had some leftover from her party.)

Try not to die from the sweetness.

Then she decided we could teach baby Rad how to crunch leaves.

Rad, of course, just tried to eat the leaves, but he almost exploded from sheer delight because his big sister gave him about 60 seconds of her attention. That’s about 10 times as much as he usually gets from her! Haha. Ugh. I can’t even talk about the way he gazes at her without starting to blubber. I caught her playing peek-a-boo with him when I left the room the other day and I actually started crying. I’m crying about it again now. I can’t stop THE CRYING.

Anyway. You can check out Gigi’s full spotlight on the Fairy Bird’s Blog!

Thank you Heather and Heidi for creating an opportunity for my daughter and I to talk about something other than how many stuffed animals she gets to take into Target with us. And a HUGE thank you to Heather Hackney for the beautiful pictures of my babies.

Lots of Love!
Alison
