Gift Wrapped

 On Sunday we dressed Caitlin in one of her new outfits from Grandma. I am LOVING the new clothes.  (Thank you, Mom!) In  typical fashion I added a bow to her hair.

At Mass there was another mother with a baby about the same age as Caitlin. She asked how I got the bow to stay in. Super glue?

That afternoon we snuck in a quick Costco trip. Caitlin stops traffic in that store! My favorite comment of the day was the woman who said, "Isn't that cute! She is gift wrapped and all with the little bow!"


As for the bows?

I get this question a lot, so I'll share my little secret...

 Those who know me well know I am super cheap thrifty. All the bows, headbands, and hats we've bought are from Target and Walmart. I didn't think she would actually wear them at first so I didn't want to spend a lot. We started putting bows and headbands on her from an early age and thankfully she doesn't mind. I am sure our days are numbered, but I'll enjoy it while I can! For now I've found no one else cares that the bow in the picture was part of a 6 pack for $2.50. It works for me!

Rylee has all those same target bows but she never leaves them in. I was thinking "maybe I didn't start her early enough" then I remembered "oh yeah she didn't gave any hair - that was why!"
