L = Leggings

Leggings. 

Yet another new and interesting thing we've experienced having a girl. It's like trying to shove a turkey into a sock. Sure they're adorable but boy are they work to get a baby into them. Especially when said baby has some chunky little thighs and squirms like crazy when getting dressed. 

No one prepared us for leggings. There are no warnings on the packaging. However, I'll admit that Amy seems to have an easier time with the leggings. This leads me to believe that to successfully use leggings requires the presence of estrogen. Sure I've put them on but it's not been easy and they always seem to be a bit crooked.  I guess there's a learning curve with this sort of thing. 

All this struggle with leggings has me wondering about tights.  Just the name alone implies it will be more difficult than leggings. We have a few pair unopened. They're just sitting there in a drawer, mocking me. Taunting me. Waiting for the day when we will do battle. Until then I guess I'd better get used to the idea and continue practicing with leggings. Oh the fun that comes along with all of the girl accessories. 

All is well, 12/26 down, in Drosche Land.

  1. Cute post. I can just see you working those cute pudgy baby legs into a pair of leggings.

    I wonder - have you tried rolling up the leggings first, then kinda unrolling them onto her? Hehe - yeah, easier said than done, I'm sure!

  3. I love this post! It's definitely a task to get any article of clothing on squirmy pudgy babies, but especially tights and leggings. Perhaps being female helps in the process because my boyfriend struggles a bit more and they're nearly always crooked. :)

    Have fun with a-z.

    1. I think it totally has to do with being female, must be genetic! :)
