my trendy baby


headband: gift from Alison/dress and cardigan: gift from grandma and grandpa Brinkerhoff/boots: gift from Pamela

When we found out we were having a girl I could NOT wait to dress her up! But when Mia was born I realized how much work it was to take care of this baby. She'd pee or poop on her outfit at least once a day those first couple of weeks :) And it was so much work to take off little pants to change her diaper! And you could just forget about bows or flowers on her sweet head.... and I was SO SAD! I wanted to dress her to the nines, but it was so much easier to just throw on a night gown and stay as cozy as possible. Soon enough it got easier to change her diapers, she stopped peeing each time a diaper came off, and it wasn't a pain to dress her in darling little outfits.
Now Mia has finally grown out of the newborn size and we are starting to get into the fun outfits! We haven't had to buy any clothes for her yet, but it's so fun to pick through the clothes and accessories we were gifted and put together cute outfits for her! This girl is definitely going to be the one that is best dressed in our family (obviously, since I'm looking so put together in these pictures, ha ha!) I'm so excited to shop and play dress up with my baby girl! And you better believe there will be some mommy/daughter matching outfits in the future, ha ha!

P.S. My father in law picked out this dress and cardigan, isn't that the cutest?!

I don't have ANY outfits in newborn sizes besides sleepers and gowns. I know how babies are! I do have tons of 0-3 months though:) I was SO excited when I found out we were having a girl.. little boys clothes are cute but my goodness the stuff they have for little girls makes my heart do flips!

Oh my gosh are those baby Uggs?! She is adorable Courtney! I agree, I didn't start dressing up Everdeen until she was a few months old because it was too much work...even now we spend a lot of time in jammies haha!

Those little pink boots kill me! Now that I'm a mother I would much rather go shopping for my kids than myself!

Your father in law has wonderful taste! She is seriously the cutest! That's what I think would be SO FUN about having a little girl! Boys are fun, too! But not as much...to dress :)
