Dolls Were A Pale Foreshadowing...



... of how much fun it is to have a baby girl.

That's what I discovered when I had one of my own. As someone who, as a child, had never liked playing with dolls or dressing up, I was amazed at how much fun it was to buy diminuitive sweaters and make small-scale dresses. Every day it's "the fun chore" to dress up little Polly.


And one thing I've found that's more fun that small hats, sweet bonnets and wee sweaters are these faux baby shoe-socks from Trumpette. I put them on the baby's feet over a pair of cotton tights and they never fall off, ever! They are the perfect finishing touch to just about any baby outfit. Especially when worn with those ubiquitous nebulous unisex outfits, these socks cue in everyone that "Yes, this is is a girl!" Check out these socks: they are worth the price. A wonderful baby shower gift for any mother of a new little daughter.

What a pretty baby! We have two girls (11 and 9) and three boys (7, 3 1/2 and 20 mos.) and I am due with #6 in June. My girls are SO hoping for a little sister, after 3 roughneck little brothers. Little Polly's picture put that little tug in my heart for another girl. It really is precious to dress those little girly girls. (Of course boys are gobs of fun and when they get older they don't get their feelings hurt as easily...) :o)

My Irish dance teacher had shoe-socks for her little girl that looked like Irish dance shoes! It was really cute, especially when she was old enough to run around the dance class and pretend to dance like the big girls.

Your little Polly is a very pretty baby!
