Playing Dress-Up

Jillian is at the age where she is really starting to have an opinion about her clothes. She enjoys going through her closet and choosing her own outfits to wear each day. I usually just give her 2 options the night before and let her choose which one. Sometimes we still have dramatic crying over outfits, hair bows, and shoes, but letting her choose between two choices I have already made for her seems to be helping the situation some! ;)

She wanted to change clothes after she woke-up from her nap today. Since we were staying around the house this evening, I let her completely dress herself. She loved getting to choose every detail of her outfit…and it was quite the outfit, don’t you agree?

(That’s chocolate animal cracker on her tooth, not a cavity! Ha! We had been snacking while accessorizing!)

I just love seeing Jillian’s girly personality developing! We think she is one cute and funny girl!

The purse just really sets of the entire outfit!!

You may just have a future fashionista there:)

So sweet! We have clothing battles all the time! I also try the 2 outfit approach... it works 95% of the time!

I recommend hitting up the clearance rack at Target or Walmart a day or two after Halloween for some great dress up outfits and a cheap price!! Perfect for a dress up bin for Christmas!

She is so cute and has the best personality!

Girls are so much fun. I love seeing the stuff Amelia comes out of her room wearing every day! LOL

She is such a cutie! This has got to be totally a girl thing, b/c my 2 y/o boy could care absolutely less about what I put on him and has zero interest in picking any clothes himself (unless perhaps it has thomas the train on it haha!)

I was exactly the same way. My mom HATED it though. She's not a girly girl at all, though her mom was. Nana said it was her revenge.

Fun times! It drives me crazy because it makes the laundry piles bigger. AHH! Jillian does look so precious in the outfit that she selected.

Our girls are about two weeks apart! It is so fun to see how they love everything girly! Jillian is a ham for the camera! Adorable!

The Brody-isms were so funny! One of my favorite things about being a parent is listening to the things Lilly and Reid say--kids are hysterical!!

Love that sweet Jilly Kate! A girl needs accessories momma. (;
