My mother's been asking me what Kavi will be wearing for her first birthday party. I wasn't sure which party dresses fit her, so I tried a couple on this morning (Kavi was very tolerant of the fashion show). And I have to admit, I'm torn. I'm awfully fond of both of these outfits, and I think they'll both still fit her in two months. I realize no one but a mother is likely to obsess over a baby's clothes like this, but hey, in case you have an opinion, I thought I'd throw the question out to the group. Which one do you like better?
We have the classic blue and white dress, very lovely and elegant. It's got tiers of ruffles! We could call this the 'white baby' dress.
And then there's the slightly more raucous 'brown baby' outfit that Mirna brought back for her from India. Which was a bit hard to get a good photo of Kavi in because she was absolutely obsessed with all the sparkly sequins. I took about fifty photos, and in almost all of them she was looking down, picking at her skirt.
My current thought is that we'll wear the orange one for the family party in Connecticut, and the blue and white for the friends party in Chicago. No actual choice will be necessary! So yes, this has all been a way to procrastinate. Babies are good at facilitating procrastination, especially if you have a digital camera. I need to go back to reading history now...
