These photos were takes a few months ago, I love them so much. I shared one or two along the way but I really wanted to share all of them because they are some of my favorites I have ever taken. The dresses are hand-me-downs from my older sisters kids, hopefully there will be more little girls that get to wear them later on. Dresses like this will last forever if taken care of because little ones never get to wear them enough to wear them out. These photos make me think we have two little yentas in the making.
I love putting them in dresses now because they can wear them safety without much risk of hurting themselves because of the dress. They had a hard time wearing dresses while they were crawling because they skirt of the dress made it hard to move when it would get caught under their knees. Then when they started walking they were falling so often they would get their foot stuck in the skirt while trying to get up and end up just falling again. Now they are great walkers, and while they still fall occasionally and the skirt can sometimes make it harder to get back up, they are doing pretty good and the extra effort is worth it because they look so cute in fancy little dresses!
The black Mary Janes are now too small on them. The pearls were a baby gift from my Aunt Joan and her late husband my Uncle Harry. I miss him. Elmo goes everywhere. The purple “ball” was a new car toy for the long road trip we had just taken. Both girls were afraid of it at first. Talia got over it, Jordan is still mostly afraid of it and Talia knows it and taunts her with it. The green frog purse was a souvenir gift from the zoo their nanny got them, there is a tiger that goes with it. I’m thinking about starting to use a de-tangler in their hair after bath, any recommendations on an all natural one?
