Girls Rule, Boys Drool

I was laying in bed this morning looking at Ruby and realized (for the thousandth time) just how lucky and happy I am to have a little girl.
I will be STOKED when we have a little Mister, don't get me wrong. In fact, I think our next one will be a boy for sure. But there is just something about my little Ruby that we're both girls and will always have the Mother/Daughter bond that is so irreplaceable.

Daddy LOVES when she dresses girly. He even asks "does she have like a bow or a headband we could put on?" when getting ready for church. (never saw THAT coming!)
But I think she is like me. Girly, sure, but not over the top by any means.
When we put super girly stuff on her, it just doesn't look right and we end up taking it off. That's exactly how I am when I'm getting dressed.

Fashion rule #1- if you are uncomfortable wearing it and don't feel like "you" TAKE IT OFF!!
So here's our perfect balance. Girly, and adorable if I do say so myself...but certainly not over the top.
How PERFECT is this little knit penguin Ruby's cousins (well, my cousins) sent her!
I dare say, this is one of my absolute top favorite gifts we've received for her.
ALL THE WAY FROM LONDON!!
This had to pass customs, had 20 pounds written on it instead of our boring dollars, and the mail was "Royal Air"...
how fancy, Ruby Girl!

I LOVE that little penguin. How adorable. And it being from overseas makes it so much cooler.

How are you and I best friends? My motto is BETTER TO LOOK GOOD THAN TO FEEL GOOD!!!

Haha, we are so opposites attract! But one thing I think we can both agree on: Ruby looks so flippin' cute in those little leggings!

Which is PRECISELY why you look the way you do and I look the way i do! Our mottos! That's why I always say you fascinate me! Make-up, hair, and actual outfit EVERYDAY?! As a stay-at-home-Mom?? that's amazing!
And yes, we are opposite in pretty much everything. That's what keeps us going!

Leslie McDaniel said...

Whatever! You look GREAT everyday too. Just because I throw on some eyeliner and suck in, does not mean I'm fascinating!

Okay first off, Kevin is SOOO precious! I LOVE to see how much he adores his baby girl! Sam's the same way!
Second, Ruby DOES look precious in her outfit! Gotta love those baby legs!!!! I love the picture too, because she looks like she's just chillin'!
And third, that penguin is stinkin' awesome! And it is so fancy that it came from London! (Paisley loves everything fancy!!!)

(can't wait for Paisley and Ruby to meet! I shall be up in Bentonville next weekend...could we make that happen?) :)

Molly Carman said...

Oh man, Ruby is cracking me up with that expression! Also, I want some leggings just like those.

Chrissy Galloway said...

Ok Ruby in that outfit...ADORABLE!

Also, I'm the same way with clothes. Everytime I try and "dress up" the entire floor of my bedroom gets covered. I never find anything I think looks good on me and a resort back to jeans! So I'm totally with you. If you don't feel like YOU in it, don't force it!
