You, my love, are nearly impossible to dress. I am seriously, seriously struggling. In fact, I get more frustrated in the morning while looking in your closet to pick out clothes than looking in mine. And that is saying something. You are long enough to fit in 12 month clothes, but skinny enough to fit in 3 month clothes. Your head ideally requires 18 month clothes or buttons/snaps at the neck (although I have figured out I can slide things up over your tiny hips easier than over your head). On top of just finding a size that fits, is finding a style that fits. I am tired of shopping in the infant section for you. You are three years old, so I don’t want baby-ish designs on your clothes! Mema took us shopping and helped redeem your winter wardrobe. So far my solution for the colder weather is long “fitted” sweater dresses that look a bit loosey goosey on you. And with them I pair leggings which are tight enough on your thighs so that they don’t slip off despite being baggy around your waist. Next year I am afraid my only option will be learning to sew. Anybody who has seen me attempt to draw a straight line knows that cannot end well.
