Silly Rabbit, Trix are for kids!

Recently my mom brought some of the baby things I’d tucked away in my "hope chest", (man, does that totally date me and make me feel silly, or what?!?!) and low-and-behold, there were a few of the old outfits my Aunt Sue had made over 20 years ago.  Apparently I’d snuck them (so very sneakily I might add) into my own personal collection.  Hehehe!  (ßsneaky laugh)  I’ve been anxiously awaiting the day when Mia would fit into them, especially this darling pair of teal overalls that I've loved for, well, about 20 YEARS.  She would always send the cutest outfits and I remember wishing I could use them on my dolls back in the day.  J  Well, today I pulled them out again and she’s finally big enough for them!  Yay!  She had kind of a rough day today, but looked so stinking cute that I had to take pictures anyway! 
Serious little girl + cute outfit = seriously cute photo of my baby girl.

I wanted to get a photo of the whole outfit with her standing up because it's just so dang cute and she looked so adorable in it.  We started out with me holding onto her hands, but at one point I let go to wipe some ever-present drool.  She could still stand by herself, not because of any incredible balance skills that she has, but because she was standing leaning slightly back against my legs.

Holding on to mama - her little armpits come up to about my knees!

Well, after I let go that one time to wipe her little face, she realized that she could stand up on her own and would NOT let me hold onto her hands for ANYTHING, little turkey!  I'd try to reach down and hold onto her hands and she'd shake them off every time after that.  Oh my!  She is SUCH a determined little thing, even at such a young age.  Hopefully it will serve her well as she grows up and sets goals for herself.  Man, just thinking of her being old enough to make goals makes me feel old and a little sad! 

What?!?!  You think since I'm only five months old I can't stand up on my own?!?!

See... no hands.  Told ya.

Ah, silly rabbit, Trix are for kids... but I must admit, it's a pretty cool trick and such a cute little rabbit to boot!


  1. WOW! Brings back SO MANY memories! I loved that outfit too!

  2. Oh MAN . . . TWENTY YEARS AGO?!?!??? I still REMEMBER sewing that outfit!!! O can't believe you hung on to it for all this time . . .That is SO stinkin' CUTE on your little girl . . . Wow . . . She looks SO grown up standing there like that . . .
