Kiddo fashion for TWO + giveaway

In case you don’t follow me on Facebook and you missed it. I had a kinda-sorta mini announcement this week. Yea. Kinda crazy huh? Not really. Who can resist another one of these?…

A couple weeks ago I was plotting my husband’s transformation to daddy of (almost) two; warding off neigh-sayers and men’s rights groups (I know… Who knew?) who thought I was forcing, and torturing my poor husband into a horrible situation; and here I am in my first two-week-wait since Lil’ J. My how things change fast. Not only that but two different people wrote me today saying my approach worked on their husbands! Mens Right’s beware. Us women are on to something here. Forget “forgetting” to take our birth control. Whatdoyaknow, consistent open conversations can be evil and conniving persuasive!

Anyway, enough jabbing the haters, on to the good news…

This time is NOTHING like last time. There’s no temperature taking, pill popping, sex-natzing, stressing, or tracking. I’m going to enjoy being Lil’ J’s mommy and focus on her, and when it happens, it happens. At least now it CAN happen. (I say all of this now, but check in again in a few months.)

Sadly, I haven’t had much time yet this summer to make sun-suits and dresses for Lil’ J, but I hope to pick it up soon. In the meantime, I had a mini-spree on (they sell clothes now!) and got a few dresses and some swim shoes. They have brands like Tea Collection, Carters, and OshKosh.It’s easy to brows their selection because of all the sorting options plus there’s free 2 days shipping on orders over $49. It was just hard to decide what to get. Aside from the two pictured, I got another dress that should be here tomorrow. Now I have an excuse to expand Lil’ J’s wardrobe while stocking up on more cloth diaper stuff.

I already love coordinating with Lil’ J myself (I know, I’m a big dork), so I can’t wait to match TWO kiddos.

I don’t have a preference for a boy or girl next time around and probably won’t try to find out before he/she is born.

I’m getting ahead of myself. But that’s what I do. In fact, I’ve already created some summer looks for brother/sister and sister/sister pairs.

Summer Breeze
Boyz Just Wanna Have Fun
Summer Rock
Sundress Galore

All of these things are from I made these clothing looks. Impressive right? … Well, I thought so until I saw some of the others people had created. I used the Polyvore app (you can find it here) which is fun for sparking wardrobe inspiration. I think it’s my new favorite hobby. Β

  1. Well, since I have one of each, I love all the collections. I can certainly see some stuff that I’d like to get for JJ and I’m really feeling the sundresses for Moo if I could find similar ones in her size.

  2. I love the sundresses! My 3 month old daughter is finally outgrowing all her newborn layette and wearing her summer dresses. I’m kind of addicted to dressing her up:).

  3. Ooooh, the Sundresses Galore is definitely my favorite!

    PS–I’m in the two week wait as well for #2. It’s exciting!! Looking forward to hearing big news from you very soon! πŸ™‚

  4. I love the Summer Breeze collection. My daughter already has that owls top and it’s one of our favorites!

    I’m entering on the rafflecopter with my Facebook username Mary Happymommy.

    BTW, your daughter is so cute! I love her hair!

  5. Definitely love Sundress Galore the best, but I have a little boy who would also look adorable in the looks from Boys Just Wanna Have Fun. I love the look Lil J is making in the first picture!

  6. Love the sundress galore, especially as I just got the blue and the pink See Kai Run shoes for my twins. Those shoes are superdorable.

  7. I have 2 beautiful girls so I’m all about dresses during the summer months! Living in Michigan they only get to wear dresses on Sundays during the winter so when warm weather arrives I go dress crazy!

    My favorite piece was the dress and shoes from the Summer Breeze collection and red dress and ALL the shoes from the Sundress Galore collection. I’m as big on shoes as I am on dresses πŸ˜‰

  8. oh I love the Summer Breeze because I have both boys and a girl but I also love the Sundresses one!!

    On a separate note I was wondering if you are still cloth diapering Lil J? I am really thinking of switching over with my 20 month old daughter and hopefully have it help us with getting her potty trained by 2 and then also to get a stash growing for when #4 comes hopefully in the not to distant future so that we can go full cloth with all of our future babies. Would you still recommend the Sprout Change or do you have other brands you love more? Thanks!!

  9. I have boys, but I’m loving those sun dresses, especially that little orange number. Oh to have one more… But sadly, your 30day method would never work on my dh b/c he is dead set against another baby and even bringing up the topic makes him angry.

  10. It’s definitely the third one for me! I can’t wait to see how you’ll be pairing them up but my heart melts thinking about Lil J having a little sister!

  11. I love the Summer Breeze…mostly because I hope Future Baby (in the talks, but not the works) is a girl so I have one of each! πŸ™‚

  12. I’m fairly confident my children have worn some variation of all the outfits in the Summer Breeze category. So if you’re not that good, neither am I (and, by the way, I’m awesome. ;)).

  13. I love the Summer Breeze looks because we are about to start trying for number 2 and I’m hoping for a lil sis for my sweet boy. Although… this boy is pretty fun so another would be great, too. I’m just excited to have the hubs on board, finally. Congrats on your success in that arena! πŸ™‚

  14. All of them!!! I guess I need to choose so…the sundresses are soooooooo cute. The striped outfit in “Boys Just Wanna Have Fun” is different and I like that about it.

  15. The last look is definitely my favorite. I love the little shoes you found to go with the dresses.

    I love the look of little kids coordinating and even matching sometimes. Plus, I feel like you have to hurry up and do it while they’re little and don’t give you grief about being a “dork”
