Model new outfits

Holden is my baby doll to dress as I please

I had a really specific idea of how “manly” my infant son would be. I felt like duckies and bunnies were some how to babyish and he needed to be wearing rugged outfits with jeans. By the time he chose his own clothes, I was just happy not to have dirt spilling out of the pockets or too many rocks in the clothes dryer.

The activity suggestion is to try on all the new outfits you got as gifts, no matter how silly you think they are, and photograph him in the clothes before he outgrows them.

Remember to take pictures when outfit is fresh (it took me 3 tries on this outfit and I finally dressed him in the living room out by the chair!) — if your baby is a puker like mine, this is especially important.

Whitney calls this activity “playing baby doll.” After all, why did we have children if not to pretend they are our favorite toys?
