Embracing my inner girly-girl

I would never profess to be a girly-girl. And while I am thrilled to have a girl, I never expected to have such a girly-girl. In fact, for her first year or so, we often dressed her in gender-neutrals. A lot of this had to do with the fact that we didn't know which gender she'd be before she came out. She has always loved accessorizing; with stickers, bracelets, necklaces, purses, you name it. She is obsessed with Chapstick and she loves to brush and dry her own hair.

Fast forward a bit to Burlington: we now have a friend who is a year older than Lili and is the uber-girly. She has passed down some great items to Lili, one of which is a fancy, faux-pearl lined pink tulle dress. Lilian has been living in this item for a little over a week. I added sparkly pink "ballet" shoes to the ensemble today and Lili is in little ballerina heaven.

Watch, next week she'll be back into sweats.

It is a great advantage to be able to wear any style well.
