Last year I hosted a Matilda Jane trunk show and purchased this adorable outfit for my daughter Alden. Sadly, the pink polka dot leggings have been hanging in her closet for months now - just waiting for her to grow into them. Until now. They finally fit!
Time to take this outfit out for a spin!
Alden is all about dressing up these days. She actually gets her feelings hurt if I try to dress her in jeans. So, I decided to get her all dolled up (in her new outfit, of course) for a fun mother-daughter outing. We window shopped, treated ourselves to Paciugo, and even took a few pictures.
Apparently, there's nothing quite like Italian sorbet to bring out those genuine heart-felt smiles. Yeah for me! I've been getting nothing but "Cheese" smiles from Alden for close to a year now. So, I feel like I won the lottery today with these sweet pictures of my sweet little girl.
Alden turns 3 1/2 years old in a few short weeks. This day was all about documenting this special age and spending some quality time together - just us girls. It's so surreal to watch my baby girl blossom into a little young lady. It's happening all too fast. I love knowing, though, that THIS DAY can be revisited for years to come.
I love you, Aldi Bear!
This next picture is my favorite!
And to be fair, here's Alden's favorite as well!
