Our Little Fashionista...

Emma has one pair of jeans that I thought "fit" for this fall. They were from the Children's Place, size 12 months and pink lined. I put them on Emma on Tuesday and they were fugly! They were so ill fitting and definitely not a size 12 months! We bought them around last Christmas at an outlet store and she is now old enough to wear them and yikes! It was too horrid to even take a picture...the legs were the right length but the crotch was at her knees. I don't even know how to describe the sizing...a 2T waist with 12 month legs?!

It has been a little chilly in the mornings lately so I decided I would splurge and get her a new pair of jeans. Old Navy had them marked down to $9.90 when I was there today so I picked up two pairs. The weird sizing "cloud" must have followed me to Old Navy. Both pairs were marked 18-24 months and were within an inch or so of the same length. One pair fits perfect (a little big) and the other pair won't even button up with Emma in them! So it looks like they will be going back tomorrow. The other pair was soooo cute on her!

She went to her closet and pulled out a black boot and a brown shoe. Silly girl...she wanted Mommy to put them on her. She amazingly had both a left and a right so I obliged her request.

Its funny...I just told Jon today that it looks like we need to retire the hippo dress since it was getting short on her. I kind of like how it looks with her jeans though. I might need to pop a seam around the middle and let her wear it like this. Hmmmm...I love my little fashionista!

I found the perfect color!

So I color my hair about 2-3 times a year and I try to keep it about my natural color, dark brown. It is sooo hard to find the right hair coloring...most of the time it ends up with a hint of too much red. I've tried a different brand each time since the one I started out using was discontinued about two years ago. This time I tried Feria Espresso tonight from reading a tag on Chelsea's blog the other day. It is perfect! There is almost no sign of red in almost seems like it has highlights in just the right places. I love it!

Now I need a pedicure...and a real haircut. I am getting myself out of my blahness funk slowly but surely. I want to be a hot mom. lol

We had one successful morning of taking the sippy cup of milk instead of the bottle! By 10:15 AM, she was getting sleepy and wanted her "baba" so I let her have it so she would take a nap with me. I have a feeling this is going to be a long road. The funny thing is that she'll take her sippy cup with water, juice, anything but milk and drink it happily but she gets stubborn and only takes a few sips from it if its milk. Ugh! Any suggestions? She is also very stubborn and will only take two kinds of sippy cups...the NUK Trainer Cup and the Playskool Straw Cup. Two cups that are hard to find in stores around here so we have to make sure we always bring them along!
