Playing Dress Up

I find the one photo of Eleanor and I here to be just hilarious in that we both look rather irriated and not happy to be there. And I probably wouldn’t be too happy if someone made me wear that hat either (although it is just about the cutest hat for a baby I’ve ever seen). Eleanor at 9 months is basically wearing 12-18 month clothing and so a lot of the cute little outfits she had when she was younger she’s quickly growing out of. And up until a few weeks ago we really didn’t bother with dressing her in anything buy zip up jumpers. As cute as little pants and tops and dresses are, they’re pretty impractical (especially when you’re changing them 5 times a day because baby’s spit up on themselves and have diaper leaks). But Eleanor is off to a day home soon (she starts part time in June) and getting more and more mobile and less in need of multiple outfit changes a day, which means pretty soon we’ll transition her to fully wearing little outfits proper (socks, shoes, pants, etc) and, in the meantime, and because she’s growing out of all the ones we currently have, I’m basically just making an effort to put her in an actual little outfit 2-3 times per week to get some photos and then popping her right back in to one of her comfy, convenient jumpers. Essentially we’re playing dress up.

Omg Eleanor is darling! I love that little hat on her. And your matching not-impressed faces are hilarious. ;)

Haha, indeed, she does not seem very happy with the hat choice.
Those leggings do look fab on you.

That hat is adorable! I don't think either of you look irritated in the first photo (but maybe a little in the second, haha). Enjoy having full control over her wardrobe while you can!

I have to admit, like Eleanor, I wouldn't be pleased if someone made me wear that hat - but because I am not Eleanor, I am very glad that you did. It is amazing :)
