I remember hearing someone scoff not long ago at the idea of "skinny jeans" for babies. How disgusting, right? What slaves to fashion we all are, and to think about someone imparting that on their innocent children. Humph.
But when I started trying to outfit the girls this fall, I realized how my "babies" are growing up. While I have hopes that the girls might surpass their 5'2" mama in the height department, their proportions are making it hard to find pants that fit. Even the 2T pants that were too big last year, are still too big in the waist this year...but are too short already.
Skinny jeans, here we come!
I took this picture of the girls in their new jeans last week.
The moment I downloaded it, I thought back to a similar picture I had of the girls in their first pair of (non-skinny) jeans, almost exactly two years ago.
This picture always melts my heart. At eight months old, I love how they were just propped up on the couch (weren't those the days!), leaning against each other to check out this new denim phenomenon.
In having girls, I am thankful that leggings are such an easy option. And I'm also thankful that I found a way to outfit the girls in jeans, too. Every gal needs at least one go-to pair, right?
(And I'd be lying if I said I'm not looking forward to seeing them in their jeans and boots! Mama may not be able to pull it off, but I'll bet they can!)
I'm linking up with Cheryl at Twinfatuation for Way Back When-esday. Thanks, as always, for prompting me to dig back through my picture files, Cheryl! It's always a sweet treat.
And if you haven't entered my GIVEAWAY to celebrate my new blog design...you have until Sunday, October 23rd to do so!
