Not that I haven't LOVED dressing Josiah. When I was having baby showers and when he was a newborn, lots of people made comments about hopefully I would have a girl someday and have the fun of dressing her. But now those comments puzzle me because, turns out, clothes for little boys are ridiculously cute. And I still get pains in my heart when I see Josiah in a particularly handsome little outfit.
But now I get to venture into this world!

Not that picking out baby girl clothes goes without its challenges.
For one thing, I am having to re-train my eyes to even notice the girl clothes. This week we went to Carter's specifically for me to find a "coming home from the hospital" outfit for baby girl, and I kept finding myself drawn to the boy clothes for Josiah!

Secondly, I have to say that I DO NOT LIKE about 85% of what I see in the stores for baby girls. I don't even really know how to put into words what I don't like about it - too much pink, too much cutsie, too many frills. It's all probably just in my head. Because the things I DO like are pretty cute and frilly, if I am honest.

I don't think it makes sense to spend a ton of money on baby clothes when they wear them for such a short time. Nor do I need my kiddo to be an absolute fashion plate. In fact, when kids clothes get too fashionable, I get the heebie jeebies. One things kids do NOT need is early exposure to vanity and consumerism!
BUT, I also can't stand to dress my kids in ugly clothes.
