I love this outfit because I found ribbon that exactly matched the dress.She loves playing with her back pack and has this weird facisnation with straps of any kind--backpacks, car seats, high chairs, purses, etc.She looks so grown up in this outfit with her little sweater. I still sometimes have her wear a mini bow to church if I don't have enough time to make a bigger headband. My secret weapon with the mini bows is corn syrup (thanks again Sam for the insider secret). People are always amazed and shocked that I actually put that on her head. It works really well, and the bonus is that it tastes good when you have to get the bow off of her head!Here's her more casual look without the sweater.
Can you tell that I love dressing her up and taking pictures? I'm going to do it as long as she'll let me, which better be a long, long time. When I was younger I always used to dress up my sisters and take pictures of them. We have some really sweet shots of them in matching outfits and really nice make up (I'll have to work on scanning some of them to display). I guess I've always wanted to be a stylist/photographer deep down inside. Luckily, Bailey is too little to protest too much and she does have the cutest smile. I need to think of some new poses for her because sitting on our blue couch is going to be boring for every picture.
