My daughter turns three years old tomorrow. Wow. That was kinda tough for me to write. I can’t believe it’s been three years since I held her in my arms for the first time. The days are flying by. Who am I kidding? The years are flying by.
She’s not a baby anymore. She’s rockin’ the big girl status. But there are those precious moments, every so often, when she still looks…tiny. She’s still her tall big girl self, with great conversation skills and a huge opinion on most things (wonder where she got that from?)…but sometimes she just seems so small. To me, anyway.
Usually it’s when she’s wearing some kind of uber-girly outfit. There’s something innocent about ruffles and tiny blossoms that make her look so sweet. You just want to scoop her up in your arms and rock her like a little baby doll. This is usually about the time that she tells me she’s not in the mood, corrects me for pronouncing something wrong, and I’m immediately snapped back into the big girl reality that is my daughter. Yes, she’s my kid. No question.
This Cotton Liberty print baby and girl’s blouse from Bon Bon’s Spring 2010 collection is a perfect sweet touch for any little girl, from three months to six years. This French designer has being a little girl down to an exact science. It might be the flutter wings, the little flowers (trés Laura Ingalls) or the sweet three-button detail. Whatever it is, it’s the quintessential little girl’s outfit topper.
So, happy birthday, Bug. You’ll always be my baby girl. No matter what you’re wearing.
