Grace at 5 months
Wow, they really do look different, don't they? I can't help but ponder how much they'll favor each other as they grow bigger and Violet emerges from the delicious baby fat stage into some stage where we can actually get a better idea of her facial features.
Getting out the sweet baby girl clothes that Grace wore and using them again with Violet has been such a pleasure. Because of when their birthdays are and the differences in seasons between Connecticut and Texas, I haven't really NEEDED to buy or sew much of anything for Violet up until now. (Not that this stopped me from buying and/or sewing a few new things along the way...) I think it has finally happened, though; Grace wore this particular outfit (along with a whole bunch of other warm weather clothes in that size) until the end of summer in Connecticut and I can only barely snap it over Violet's cloth-diapered booty today at the beginning of June. She's going to need new clothes for the months of hot weather ahead of us, and depending on how exactly her growth moves forward, she might not wear the big pile of 6-12 month winter clothes at all. Oh well, girls love new clothes, right?
