Maddie and Izzie. I bought this dress at Kid-to-Kid, a used clothing store. I've started buying more of their clothes there since they no longer care about matching as much anymore. But as soon as I got this dress home they BOTH wanted to wear it at the same time. When I realized it was a gymboree I got on ebay and my MOM's groups to see if anyone had one they didn't want anymore. I had no idea that the $8 that I spent on it was a steal (I thought it was expensive to pay $8 for a used dress!) But on ebay in most cases the dress was going for over $40, which is $8 OVER what it cost when it was a NEW dress on the gymboree shelves!!! Somehow mom found a listing on ebay and was able to get a second dress for only $12, which we couldn't believe. So now they have a set of matching "Rainbow Twirl Dresses" as they call them.
Izzie and Maddie. You would NOT believe how many photos I have like this. I tell the girls to stand next to each other and smile at me. As SOON as I hit the button they look at each other and laugh. EVERYTIME. To get a photo of them looking at me instead of each other is a hard feat! It's like some secret joke they have to share.
I was very pleased to snap this one quickly before they got silly!
I like this photo of Maddie concentrating really hard to get the bubble wand in the bottle. I had to cringe when they went straight for the bubbles in their "new" gymboree dresses, but I am so NOT that kinda momma. Bubbles will wash out, and why buy clothes that kids can't play in?
