Having had two girls hasn’t necessarily meant I’ve been able to use lots of Grace’s old clothes for Sophie. With Grace being a winter baby, she lived in cosy jackets, jumpsuits and beanies. Sophie on the other hand spent most of her first few months in just a singlet and a nappy. Sadly, I’m finding now as I’m slowly passing on outfits Sophie has outgrown, she hasn’t even worn many of the cute outfits I’d saved of her big sister’s.
There is one piece however I have been able to use for both times around – a brown pinafore one of my best friends gave Grace. Looking back on photos, it was interesting to see both of my girls wearing the same outfit at roughly the same age (Grace at four months and Sophie a few months ago back at 5 months).
I often get asked if Sophie looks like Grace did when she was a baby. While there are definitely similarities (blue eyes, blonde hair, round face), I can honestly say they have different features. And slowly, as the days go on, I’m noticing Sophie developing her own unique little personality too.
