Just Plain Cute

I really can't believe that Lucy is almost three months old and this is the first time I have done this but today, I "twinned" my children.  Obviously since they are not of the same gender, "twinning" is really more like coordinating, but you get the point.  I found these adorable outfits at Jaine and Jack, one of may favorite places to shop for the kids, and even better they were on sale!  Cory's mom had a little Sip and See today for our kids.  It was the first time most of her friends have had the chance to meet, not just Lucy, but Christopher too.  So it was a great excuse to dress them in their new clothes!  Pretty cute don't you think?

 

In case you can't tell from the picture, the plaid patches in Lucy's dress match the plaid in Christopher's shorts, and her bloomers under the dress are just like his shorts.  The excitement was almost too much for me to handle.  

Also, all of you moms of girls out there...help!  My daughter's hair is out of control!!  What can I do?  I know I need to be so thankful that she has hair at all but the longer it gets the more it just sticks out everywhere!!  Is there some kind of magic shampoo or something that I can use to help it calm down?  Seriously, any advice is welcome!!  I'm afraid I may have a long road ahead of me here...

So funny! I can't wait to dress Campbell and Emerson alike. As for her hair, I can't help...They are both so cute!

I think I "twinned" my girls out by the time Amalie was 2 weeks old. Blush. I guess it's easier with girls. But darn it, it's so cute!

I love the red, white, and blue outfits.

No advice on the hair. I struggle with the same thing. sigh. Maybe spray in conditioner would work?

I love the "twinning" or coordinating. Those outfits are so cute! You know I did that to the girls as long as I possibly could. I still try occasionally, but the ten year old in Cass wants no part of it! No help on the hair. You know the girls had no hair until they were at least 2! I would just let it fly!

Love the twinning. You know I love twinning and coordinating with Blake and Emma. I've been searching for the past three years for something to tame Blake's hair and nothing seems to really make a difference. I've bought a couple of smoothing type products at Aveda and I've tried hairspray sometimes and nothing really seems to help much. Crazy hair is pretty cute on babies though and it will change and thicken up as she gets older and you'll be able to manage it better.

Steph - Christopher and Lucy look adorable! I love the matching outfits. So fun! I've heard that this stuff from Cheryl Holmes is good for crazy baby hair. You might check it out.

We have good luck with the Suave detangler. (I get it a Target; it's in a green bottle.) Katie had crazy hair until she was about 10 months. A little trim helps with the wispy ends, but I'm guessing you don't want to cut her beautiful locks yet.

My mom is the one that buys the boys like outfits. I think it is cute, but wonder what people are thinking..."did she want to have twins?"
What was the name of that one store you and Meredith were discussing at church on Sunday? It is in Dallas on Preston is all I remember.

LOVE it! Can't wait til I can have a second to "twin!" They are so beautiful! Happy 3 month b-day to Miss Lucy B!
