"I Get My Style From Glamma!"

Shopping for little girls is so much fun!  I think I enjoy shopping for clothes for my granddaughter more than myself.  There are so many cute things out there for little children it's hard to resist.  I have the feeling Alethea will be the best dressed baby everywhere she goes because I have no willpower when it comes to this little one!

I spotted this graphic bodysuit while shopping for Christmas presents for Alethea and I knew it just had to go into my cart!  I wasn't sure Ashley or Jason would appreciate it, but I thought it was so perfect; and if they didn't like it, I would at least get a cute photo shoot out of it, and I DID!


Is she just the cutest thing or what?  Just look at those BEAUTIFUL big blue eyes!  She's a doll to photograph too!  She's always so expressive and gives us just gorgeous, big smiles!


As always, we coordinated our outfits.  Alethea is wearing her Stylish Glamma Collectible Bodysuit from Carters with a bright pink tutu, and a grey knit headband (Macy's).    I am wearing a black peplum top with black dress pants (both from JCP and old) and black suede wedges (Famous Footwear, old).  I added a pink pearl necklace and a pink stone bracelet to coordinate with all the pink in Alethea's outfit.


Ashley and Jason ended up thinking the bodysuit was pretty cute.  She actually gets a lot of use out of it because it has long sleeves and it works as a nice underlay for some of her other outfits.


The baby tutu is from Amazon.


I love this photo because the way she opened up her arms and swung her legs she looks like a ballerina dancing in mid air!  What a perfect shot!


The pearl necklace I picked up on our vacation to Myrtle Beach.  It is a very long strand and can be worn multiple ways;  tied in a knot, hung in a single loop, or wrapped twice around my neck and knotted like I'm wearing.


I really love this old peplum top because it gives me the illusion of a waist line.  I've gotten so much use out of it I went out and bought another one in white too!  (check out these posts HERE and HERE).


I'm very grateful we have a nice, new DSLR to take pictures of our beautiful granddaughter.  Children are more relaxed and act more natural for the camera if they are in familiar surroundings with people they know behind the lens rather than taking them to a studio and having a stranger take their picture.  We never would have gotten these cute photos in a studio!


We can also take our time with the photo shoot and allow Alethea to relax and just be herself capturing priceless photographic moments like this one.


Oh, I look at these photos and I can't wait to hold her again.  Ashley posted a video of Alethea doing the "worm crawl" on Facebook the other day and I re posted it.  I couldn't believe how much she changed in just a month!  Her hair is fuller, curlier, and it looks like she might be a red head!  My close friend described her hair color as "honey";  I thought that was a beautiful description!


I will be leaving for Chicago at the end of February to spend a week with this precious little one and my other three "kids".  I can hardly wait!

Have a Great Day!  Amy
