Okay. So I don’t plan on being the kind of mom who insists her daughter look perfectly all the time. Fashion and clothes and whatnot can be fun but they really aren’t of any lasting value or worth. Proverbs 31:30 will be a verse of scripture my Dolly shall be very familiar with:
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.”
Wise, wise, wonderful words indeed.
Do you know how much stinking fun it is to dress a little girl after having had 3 boys? Surely there can be no lasting damage done by me really enjoying gussying her up at this age! You wouldn’t deny me that pleasure, I’m sure. Not after I have done about a bajillion “Bruise Loads,” (my affectionate nickname for the very common all dark blue and black loads) of laundry I have done in my time… would you?!?
Wanna see some of the cute looks our Doll has sported this week? … Okay!
First… I offer proof that she hasn’t been in pink 100% of the time. While it’s true I am enjoying the variety her clothing has brought to our laundry, I actually really enjoy lots of different colors on her. For instance… I think she looks Lovely in Sea Foam Green:
And I already posted one of these pictures… Dottie-Bug:
Jack chose this Little Bunny outfit:
Oh! And this one is my FAVORITE! Shall we call this the Future Ballerina? The pictures don’t show it very well, but there are silver sparkles all over those pants and tutu and on the heart in her onesie:
Bright and Spunky:
Sporty Dot (Alaster chose this outfit) Check out the hood… it’s a tad too big 🙂
Me and my Polka-Dottie:
And I’m not the only one around here having fun with this, I assure you. Every day when Alaster gets home from school he runs through the door and shouts “Where’s Dot? I want to see what she’s wearing today!” (Corey’s been getting them off to school while Dolly and I sleep in.)
Daddy thinks she’s pretty adorable too! Do you want to see HIS favorite outfit? It’s actually a sweet little layette gown that she sleeps in. It’s similar to the Dottie-Bug outfit. Awwww… what an Angel Baby:
As I said before, I know these things don’t matter one whit. If Dot grows up a tomboy that hates pink I promise to be totally fine with that. I will love this girlie for exactly who she is. But for now… I plan to keep having fun dressing up my very own real-live-baby-Doll!
