One of the reasons I started this blog was to stop myself from posting so many pictures of Annie on Facebook. I guess I just didn’t want to be one of those moms, who are constantly posting pictures and updates about my baby for all 800 of my closest Facebook friends to see. But you know what? I became one of those moms anyway. It’s hard not to. And being one of those moms is just fine. But today, in the spirit of thinking that those of you who take the time to read my blog posts are a little more interested or invested in my life than the person I am “friends” with through social media but haven’t laid eyes on or spoken to in 20 years, I am posting some pictures here in an exclusive engagement.
If there is one thing I have noticed about having a girl baby, it’s that clothing companies really go all out with some adorable stuff for them to wear. And the holidays provide an excuse for even more crazy cuteness. I happen to think boy clothes are cute too – mostly because they look like tiny men’s clothes and I really enjoy some miniature items – but girl baby clothes have this special element of preciousness. And my mom and I can’t seem to stop ourselves from purchasing more and more cuteness for Annie. So today, for your viewing pleasure, here are some photos of Annie’s attire this week – a different Christmas outfit or onesie for each day (and she actually went through 2 onesies today due to a case of the spit ups, but I didn’t snap a shot of the first one before things went awry in the dry clothes department).
|Monday: Precious outfit handed down from a friend.|
|Tuesday: Going vintage.|
The velvet top Annie has on in the second picture is also a hand-me down...from her Mama. Yep, that's a 35-year old piece of fashion right there. And here's another picture to prove it (loving my mom's fancy pants in this one too...). Oh, and this might suggest that, despite the fact that she clearly has some of her daddy's features (including those amazing eyes), she does look a little like me too.
Back to Annie's stylin'...
|Wednesday: My 1st Christmas onesie, every baby has one.|
|Thursday: Any guesses who gave her this one? It says "Who needs Santa when I have Grandma." Indeed.|
So there you have it, my most blatant look-at-my-kid-and-see-how-cute-she-is post to date. Thanks for humoring me. We'll be back soon with a Christmas post (or two).
Happy three days before Christmas!
