Alethea and I are sharing our winter white knits this month. Winter white is perfect for the icy cold snowy days we have in Wisconsin and Illinois during the month of January.
I am wearing a new "Cozy Popcorn Yarn Cardigan" from CJBanks that I got for Christmas. I love this cardigan so much I bought it in white and blush. I can't even begin to tell you how soft this yarn is! It's all sold out on line in the white and pink colors, but the mint color is still available. You could also check your local stores and see if they have more colors.
Alethea is wearing a white plush hoodie vest with animal ears. I've noticed how much cute little animal ears on top of hoods is really trending in children's clothing.
Alethea also has sparkly gold leggings on with a white long sleeve top with metallic gold hearts.
I didn't have any sparkly gold leggings or white tops with gold hearts on them, to match Alethea (geez, I wonder why? 😀) so I wore my brown skinny jeans and a white top (both old).
Alethea is 17 months old now and has become even more of a delight to hang out with. I had the pleasure of having her over for Christmas for a full week. She was so fun to have around for Christmas. She loves Christmas! We let her play "Santa" and deliver all the presents to the proper recipients. She did such a good job!
She is starting to love me "almost" as much as I love her. She pointed to me and said "Mamy" for the first time! Oh, my heart just melted! What music to one's ear to have your first grandchild call you by name.
She's at the age when you can really start playing with her. We played with all the new toys she got for Christmas. We built towers with blocks, talked on the play "telephone", and ran around the house with her corn popper: her favorite Christmas toy!
She is a bundle of energy! It's harder than ever to take photos with her, but somehow we managed to get a lot of beautiful photographs to be treasured forever.
She is always fascinated with my jewelry; she will closely examining any necklace or bracelet I'm wearing. She quickly figured out on her own how my bracelet opened and closed. She is so smart!
Oh, what a little pumpkin she is! Such a vivacious personality she has. She makes me smile and laugh so much! I am truly blessed.
Finally, for those less interested in the ravings of a proud grandma and more interested in what I'm wearing, here are some detail shots of my outfit. I wanted to show the back of this cardigan so you can see it how long it is. It will be nice to wear with leggings as it covers the back side!
For shoes I wore my brown suede booties (old). I tend to wear these booties more than any other pair in my closet. They are just so comfy and go with almost everything.
For jewelry, I chose gold pieces to match Alethea's gold pants and gold hearts. The necklace is from a fall Stitch Fix box. The bracelet has a tortoise shell top.
I am so looking forward to seeing this precious bundle again! In February, I will go and spend a week at her home in Illinois. Hopefully she'll think it's really cool that grandma is at her house for an extended period of time.
Have A Great Day! Amy

These photos are so precious Amy and your granddaughter, can she be any cuter?! Love the matching outfits and I do agree that looking back at these photos will be priceless. Your granddaughter is growing up before your very eyes. She'll be so excited to see you in February and how exciting for you to have a week trip to look forward to. Happy Monday Amy and wishing you a beautiful week ahead!ReplyDelete

Awww, Thanks so much Maureen! You are so sweet! I’m definitely printing and framing some of these photos!Delete
Oh, Amy!! The smiles say it all. It's such a blessing you get to spend such time with her, and I love how you two match.ReplyDelete
Yes, they do! Thank you! I count every moment I get to spend with her pure bliss. It's funny how we are both wearing completely different types of clothing, yet still match so well.Delete
Such beautiful photos Amy, she is such a cutie and love her smile! Baby and toddler clothes are the cutest, they had some clothes with animal ears back when my kids were babies too, and would you believe I have kept most of them, because they were just too cute!!ReplyDelete
Your cardigan looks so soft and cozy and love the white! I definitely don't need another cardigan, but may have to go looking for one like this!
Oh, how funny you kept most of them! But I can understand why. The cardigan is so soft and cozy, and I didn't not need another one either but I felt with the light color, I could wear it well into spring!Delete
What dolls, both of you! Love winter whites but have always been chicken to wear them. You have inspired me to give it a go.ReplyDelete
Cannot believe baby girl is 17 months. She is growing so fast. I remember when she was just a gleam in your eye and we were waiting Alethea to arrive. What a blessing our grands are. Wish mine were closer so I could do grandma and me. This is one of my favorite posts!!
Thank you! I know what you mean about winter whites, I struggle with them too, especially white pants!Delete
Oh these photos are adorable of you and your gorgeous grand-daughter. Her character shines through and so does your love for her! xx MariaReplyDelete
Awww, Thanks Maria!Delete
This is just so fun! I love the gold leggings she is wearing and you both look so cozy for winter!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, Alethea is getting so big and she is so beautiful!! I just love winter whites, and you both look gorgeous!ReplyDelete

What a little cutie pie! I love her outfit and your matching one! The photos of you two are darling!ReplyDelete
Thank you Laura!Delete
She just keeps getting cuter Amy - granddaughters are such a joy aren't they? My grandgirl loves my jewelry too - her Mum doesn't wear necklaces and bracelets much, so mine fascinate Sophia. And yes, when they start to string more words together it's so much easier to understand what they think and what they want!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I've shared on my SM x
Amy such awesome pictures. There is nothing like grandbabies as I say all of the time. Love your sweater and Alethea outfit is adorable.ReplyDelete
Thank you! There truly is nothing like grand babies!Delete
Such fun times!ReplyDelete
I spend one afternoon a week with my 15-month-old grandson to give his parents a break. It never dawned on me to take pictures of our time together. Thank you for the inspiration :)
Oh, you’re welcome! I think it’s so important for grandparents to take pictures with their grand kids as were not around as long as their parents are they will appreciate the photos when they’re older.Delete
