One of many things I love about having kids of the same gender is hand-me-downs lol. It is so much fun pulling out clothes that Raya wore and seeing them on Brielle! Lately Brielle has been wearing some of Raya's Naartjie hand-me-downs....these were actually the very first outfits I ever purchase from Naartjie!
Raya on the left, Brielle on the right---they look so much alike here! I haven't measured Brielle lately, but I feel like she must have had a growth spurt, because these are 3T outfits and she was swimming in 2T just a few months ago.
And then I don't have an individual pic of this dress for Brielle, but she's wearing this hand-me-down today
And here is Raya wearing the same dress:
Speaking of Miss Raya, she strikes this ballerina pose all the time for pics now...she thinks she's hot stuff! And then she says, "Was that an adorable picture?" haha
And lastly in fashion news, I think I may have finally found the secret to saving my sanity!! Raya's sensory issues with "bottoms" has been driving me insane. She acted like she was going to wear jeans this fall so I bought quite a few tops to go with them, and then like a light switch she started freaking out about everything on her bottom half...grrr. She'll only wear loose leggings pretty much...and leggings are NOT pants :-P
So anyways, the other day I found this jean skirt at Old Navy...I got a size *7* ...for my 4 year old lol....so that it would be nice and loose. I adjusted the waist in some so that it wouldn't fall off, and luckily it runs like a mini skirt so even sizing up to a 7 it was an ok length.
SHE LOVED IT. No tears, and we were able to wear a shirt that was otherwise sitting in her closet unworn and jean-less haha.
So now I think I better go back and get the same skirt in the lighter color, and some more leggings....and fingers crossed my child will stop tantruming every day when it's time to get dressed, while still remaining clothed and not naked from the waist down like is her preference :-P
