Orange top, Dark Green shorts, Blue and Yellow shoes

Unfortunately, I have no photo of this because we arrived home late and Aaron was too tired for anything but a bath and sleep.

But can you imagine those colours together? Orange, Dark Green, Blue and Yellow. Thats what his father dressed him in.

Yes, he's only 15 months and I'm definitely not a fashionista but his clothes still need to match. Right?

As it is, the baby shops stock inventory as if there were only baby girls born everyday. Cute fairy outfits, purple mary jane shoes, tiny denim skirts. You name it, they've got it for the girls.

I was a just telling a friend just last week, little boys have to rely on their faces and personalities to be cute because the shops definitely aren't helping in terms of outfits. So, Aaron may have the face and the act together but I still don't want him to go around looking as if we didn't put any thought into dressing him. Its not that I'm one to follow the latest trends and I definitely don't fall into any fashionable category myself but I want Aaron to grow up knowing how to match. This seems to be a skill that all the men in my family lack.

Side note: I was just thinking to myself that blogging is so much fun because it is such a convenient medium for putting whatever thoughts you have out there. Like today, when my brain is a little tired from thinking about Captain Picard's Christmas Party, but I would still like to have my daily post up, I can do one on an everyday thing like matching a baby's clothes.

Agnes always complained about the lack of "cute" clothes for boys, as compared to girls. It's a universal thing, I guess.

Oh heelarious! Sounds like something my husband would dress my son in too. Too cute Amanda.

Well, there's always godma to the rescue! I've received a few offers to start personal grooming classes for guys! Haha. Cute post. Can you please dress him up in what Richard did and take a pic of it? :-)

Yeah, Chris always complained that the only boy clothes she could find were sports clothes or camouflage--both she refused to dress Aaron in. Actually, she always found cute stuff and he always looked clean and nice--as long as she dressed him or I dressed him in an outfit of her choosing!

Fathers can't really find the right combination because most of the kid's outfit were purchased by the mother....;)
