The latest trend for babies

Since Isabella is long, most of her pants are too big for her around the waist which means I'm constantly pulling them back up. This is the solution! Granted, she only wears pants when we go to parenting group because the room gets chilly - but I think it works well.

I can't take credit for the idea. I got it from a blog that I read - http://www.mattlogelin.com/

Matt is a single dad who grew up in Mpls and now lives in L.A. I first read about him in the Star Trib about a month before Isabella was born. Warning: it's a sad story . Basically, his wife died the day after their first daughter was born. His blog is about his life as a single dad.

One day he posted a picture of his daughter with her pants under her onesie - for the same reason I described above - and how people would actually tell him that he dressed his daughter wrong. WTF? who would tell someone that?? Anyway, I thought it was a good idea and actually think it looks cute!

hey, amanda...that is so cute with the onesie over the pants. I think its a girl thing though...not sure how Evan would look in them.

I didnt know you had a blog...I found it on Matt's blog...you posted a reply right above mine.

Anyway, looks like things are going well with BF and such. Isabella is a doll! Im glad you stuck with it!!

Ha, I saw your comment on Matt's blog today. I love the idea of the pants under the onesie! Wish I had thought of that when my girls were babies. :)

I think the pants under the onesie is brilliant! And I don't think it looks like they were dressed "wrong". How rude!
