Meet Ingrid! Our Weekly Kiddo.

Howdy, howdy pals, it’s time for this week’s kiddo cutie—Ingrid. This little sassy pants is two years old and lives in mah loverly homestate of Michigan. Her mama Amber is one of our fave readers—and an awesome commenter, thank you very much—so I’m super excited to show off her sweet little girl. Amber dresses her in a combination of vintage and new, but most awesomely she makes a lot of Ingrid’s clothes herself. Since we have clearly established that I am the NON-sewing half of Modern Kiddo, I am always impressed by this. Let’s have a lookie at the super, adorable Ingrid!

Ingrid is a total sweetie. She loves music and her favorite band is Yo Gabba Gabba—she just saw their live show and is very proud of the special Yo Gabba tote bag that she got. She is an animal lover—cows, horses, goats, you name it—but her best pal is her dog Cody, who she loves to take  for walks by the lake. Ingrid also loves coloring, laughing, riding her tricycle and avocados. Mmmm. Avocados. Ingrid, you are my kinda gal.

Amber, thanks for sharing this super adorable little girlie with us!

Meet Sasha! Our Weekly Kiddo!

Oh friends, gather round. This special Kiddo update brought to you from glorious PRAGUE! Yesterday was insanity—arriving on 2 hours of sleep I was immediately thrown into the work scene.  I was jet lagged beyond belief, holed up in our hotel for meetings and castings, but still blown away by this lovely city. Today is a new day, I feel refreshed and ready to go! I am sitting in my hotel, enjoying some berries and yogurt with a nice pot of coffee and have something awesome to share with you. Just when I think we’ve seen the cutest kids possible, I get another round of emails from you guys with your amazing kiddos.

Today’s little girl is a super cutie. Her mama Inessa is a wildly talented illustrator and designer and has a fabulous lil blog called Diaper Style Memoirs. Just wait till you see her little two year old daughter, Sasha. Miss Sasha is of Russian descent, which seems appropriate, what with me being here in the Czech Republic. (And Sasha is the diminutive form of Alexandra….so I’m double loving it!) OK….on with the show my friends.

How adorable is this child??? I am loving how her momma dresses her. The polka dot skirt?? AMAZING. I chatted with Inessa and asked her to tell me alittle bit about Miss Sasha!

“Sasha is a typical 2 year old girl, playful with lots of energy which she needs in order to keep up with her older brother who is 8. Although she looks up to him, she doesn’t allow him to push her aroun! She loves to play dress up and adores shoes. All kinds of shoes. It is usually the first thing she notices about what people are wearing. She loves accessories but hates wearing hats and large bows in her hair. She raids her grandma’s jewelry drawer. Her favorite foods right now are: any kind of cheese, sour cream (which if allowed – she eats by spoonfuls), ice cream and honey. She doesn’t really play with lots of toys. She prefers to run around with her brother and throw the ball around just like him. But she does love her stuffed animals and dolls. She rotates the stuffed friend she sleeps with from day to day. She is usually easy going unless she is not getting what she wants and then — she can throw a mean tantrum.

Sasha loves to read books (turns the pages and blabbers to herself about what she thinks is happening) and adores the shows Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Handy Manny. Given the opportunity she would watch them all day long! She talks a lot but its difficult to know what she is saying because her vocabulary consists of both English words and Russian. She adores older children who she calls “babies” and absolutely is smitten with her brother’s 11 year old friend who she calls JoJo. She cannot contain her excitement when she sees him — she dances and jumps and sings and does absolutely any trick she can to get his attention. She will never leave his presence before she can give him a kiss even if that means following in his steps for hours with puckered lips saying “JoJo Muah, Muah.”  “

Thank you so much Inessa for sharing this little gorgeous girlie with us! Don’t forget to swing by the Diaper Style Memoirs to see more of Sasha’s sweet little life—as well as Inessa’s great design style!
