Her wardrobe > my wardrobe by, like, a lot.

I have been remiss. I'll make it up to you. Let's talk about Eleanor's clothes, because she is big and all these great things fit her now.

She has overalls with heart pockets on the bum. Also, she is the standiest. Hey, lookit all them toys in that there toy-box.

She has a little orange toque that I get compliments on all the time, and a little bomber jacket that I got from the thrift store last year for, like, four dollars and that I also get compliments on all the time, and she has little cheetah-print tights. Also, Joel's parents came for a visit and we went for a walk by the river and the weather was lovely.

She has a jean jacked lined with pink fur. Also, we took Joel's parents to Canmore and went for lunch at the Grizzly Paw Brewery.

I had the mile-high nachos.

Eleanor had the lemon from Jake's coke.

Also, the weather was again lovely and it was much too hot for a jean jacket lined with pink fur. Also, Eleanor has a shirt that makes her look like a football, and a leggings-skirt. Skleggings?

She also has a leggings-tutu, which she wore to Thanksgiving dinner at a friend's house on Monday, and which she did not appreciate the full adorableness of (it was fully adorable).

We had to retire her feetless elephant jammies which I loved because OMG WEATHER, but she has these fleecy elephant jammies to grow into. Also, she sits in a proper high chair now and not on my kitchen table finally.

She has a legion of boots (with furrrrr) from my sister's mother-in-law which are getting a hefty wearing  on account of weather. Also, her Apple Bottom dress is ALSO from the thrift store. Also, work it, gurl.

So back when I was pregnant, I wore dresses and leggings ALL the time, and I had this maternity tank that I wore under things to help them cover m'bits, only sometimes I would take the dress of or not have put it on yet and be wandering around the house in my leggings and tank and it looked like a single unit and my sister referred to it as my catsuit. I can't believe I never took a picture of this, it was hilarious.

All of which is to say, sometimes I take her dress off for her nap and then Eleanor is ALSO wandering around the house in her catsuit. Also, LEGGGGGGS.

I don't have a cute anecdote to go with this, I've just been waiting for her to fit into this dress from my aunt Sandy since before she was BORN.

Have we talked about her pink baby-Chucks?

Also, good thing she has this snowsuit and this hat-with-ears, because SOMETHING has happened to the ground.

Ha ha, what are you up to, ground?

I agree, I want that last picture on a Christmas card or somethin' :)
I'm amazed at how easy it is for kids to be more stylish than me.
