having a girl... pretty awesome. One of the funnest things so far has to be the outfits. I know that there are cute things out there for little boys too, but nothing like what is available for girls. I plan on letting Laney develop her own style as she grows, but for now I relish picking out her clothing.

I realize that in the future, I will probably retract my opinion concerning the fun of girls' clothing. Maybe it's just me, but I notice that many companies seem to be pushing overtly sexual clothing on our little girls. Why this need to oversexualize them? Aren't they facing enough pressure? Girls have no need to wear thongs, skimpy bikinis, low-cut tops, or lingerie among other things. I guess this issue isn't going to be that far down the road. I've seen "baby's first heels" in a store here in my town. Really? Why would I ever put a pair of high heels on my baby?

Anyways, on to the fun clothing.

Exhibit A: Moto Baby

This outfit is too big for Laney at the moment, but I can't wait for it to fit. I debated getting it for awhile and wasn't going to until last week when I saw it on clearance. My sister Rosie actually bought the same one for her baby girl. I figure if I can't have twins, then Laney and her cousin can  at least dress alike.

Exhibit B: Girly Girl

I am undecided about this skirt. On one hand I think it is adorable, on the other, it seems a little silly.

Exhibit C: Baby Ballerina

Teehee. It looks like she is stretching here.

I always wanted to be a ballerina when I was little. I took ballet for a little while, but unfortunately, I wasn't cut out for it. I like food. I am really tall. I find tights uncomfortable. I have boobs. End of story. As a child, even though I knew my career path wasn't going to involve Swan Lake, I wasn't deterred from dancing around the living room with my umbrella, jumping from couch to couch, while blasting Sixteen Going on Seventeen. Come to think of it, I'm still not.

At least I have a daughter who I can live vicariously through. Just kidding. But seriously.
