Izzy and I were in desperate need of an outing today...something that would excite her enough to ease her into a nap, but mellow enough to not require a lot of preperation on my part. The logical resolution, shopping of course. We packed a baby doll, a snack and headed off to Target to check out all the new Liberty of London clothes I keep reading about. Now, I will be honest in saying that I am not much of a floral pattern buff...but my baby girl on the other hand cannot get enough of them. I was always known as somewhat of a tom-boy (nothing makes me happier than an oversized tee shirt and a good pair of sweats) my sweet baby girl on the other hand is as girly as girls go. It took her one glance at that rack to know that she was in love. Sadly, most of the dresses in her size were sold out, so she didn't get to go too wild. We walked out with one skirt, a swimsuit, a purse and a dress that she couldn't bear to take off after trying it on (seriously, they rung it up while it was on her). All and all a successful outing...she got excited, and happily fell asleep on the way home...and I didn't have to do much!!
Doesn't she look so peacefully cute sleeping in her new dress?! I couldn't resist sharing with all of you. The bad news is, now I think I might be hooked on the idea of making a quilt for her out of all Liberty of London fabrics.
Oh...and like icing on the cake, we also got a copy of The Princess and the Pea!!
