Pronounced BAH-CHEW-CHEE, it was a nickname my sister called her first-ever niece, Miss C-Jaz. According to urbandictionary.dom, this term is used to express "an absolutely wonderful bum". And that she is, myBachoochie, my little bum cheeks.

From Dancing with the Stars to Q'Viva Inspired Girly Dresses

Miss CJaz could not have gotten her model-posing from me! Her cuteness... yes! But her posing way!

We were cross-border shopping on the long weekend, and to get her in a change room with me so that I could try on my own stash of clothes, I told Miss CJaz she could bring in a few dresses. I loved 4 dresses that I saw for her, but I forgot about the possibility that she may have to choose.

Of course she loved all 4, but I didn't want her to think she could get it all just because they were pretty dresses. We had a heated conversation, and even though she left the change room with arms folded across her chest, I was able to convince Miss CJaz to choose only 3 of the 4 dresses.

At the end of the day, Miss CJaz walked away with 5 dresses (the yellow and coral dresses being separate purchases). I got great deals for her dresses...all on sale :)...and I got 3 from my favorite store...Gap (even though they didn't choose her for their casting call).

I love my Girly Girl and dressing her up!!!

Her eyes opened, and the 1st thing she said was, "Happy Mother's Day!" Biggest. Smile. Ever...on her face and mine :)

My Girlie Girl

Mini mani-pedi's...sun accessories...purses...lipgloss...

Miss C-Jaz is a girlie girl, and it honestly was not my intention to make her one!! She isn't a total girlie girl because I can say that she loves playing rough with daddy, throwing the football around or kicking a soccer ball. And even if she's playing with My Little Pony, it's become a hobby with daddy to make it The Adventures of 'Pony-Transformers'.

At 4 years and 11 months, Miss C-Jaz has read her 1st book (though very small) all by herself!

Girlie or not, Miss C-Jaz continues to entertain us, to love us, and to give us lots of 'family hugs'.
