Sophia woke up in a good mood, and her brother was sleeping... so why shouldn't we have some fun getting ready for Fort Days and cooler fall weather?
first we tried on a cute white blouse with some overalls that were Matthew's when he was little. Every baby girl should have a white dressy blouse in her wardrobe.
to girl it up a little, we added this headband. Erik doesn't like it, but I do. I think I've always liked headbands on baby girls... well, some headbands- this one is one of the good kind (I think any way... it's ok if you agree with Erik).
in between outfit changes, I just had to take a moment to pause and marvel at this beautiful girl God has given us.
ok- now that you've adored her too, we can get back to the runway...
It is a bit... summery- but look... when you add this cartigan ->
pretty cute huh? I'd have to add some tights so no old ladies yelled at me for having baby skin exposed to the elements though... I got enough lectures when Matthew was little to know that once the weather gets colder, you cover the baby. (My favorite was when we walked into Church on a rainy night and someone in the gathering area practically yelled across the space "no SHOES on that BABY!?!" Well, yes, it was a cold and rainy night but he WAS wearing socks and he was covered in a blanket while we were outdoors....)
how about the ever adorable overalls, with fall colored turtleneck?
or the long sleeved white shirt with coordinating pants? Isn't that top the cutest? I was thinking a few days before Mia got this for her that I had never seen a little girl shirt with a doll on it, which would make sense since boy shirts have trucks on them...
another shirt that goes with the pants (Can you tell that she was loosing her enthusiasm?)
and the final outfit- because Sophia had had enough and was ready to nap again...
So- what do you think? Which outfit is the cutest and therefore wins the award for family pictures in a beautiful fall Pennsylvania setting??
