Anyone who knows me, knows I love to get my girls twinning in any way I can, whether it's indirect twinning by putting them both in clothes such as dungarees, semi-twinning in items the same but different colours or full on twinning from head to toe, there is something endearing about having my girls matching!
As Squidgy is growing up, she is becoming more independent and harder to convince to do something that she doesn't want to. When it comes to getting my girls twinning I have to try and be a bit crafty about it, and make it her choice not mine.
The first time I managed to get them twinning was in the gorgeous BABA tees from MAMA by Rachael Kellett (which are unfortunately no longer available!) and getting a picture was like pulling teeth. Squidgy had no interest, even though I was also wearing my MAMA tee. Needless to say I left the twinning for a while.
I bought the beautiful matching Bluezoo dresses for the girls to wear on Squidgy's birthday from Debenhams while I was still pregnant. As she was in a good mood and enjoying being the centre of attention, Squidgy was a bit more accommodating when it came to getting a picture this time! In fact, she asked me to take a photo!
Whether it is wanting to read books next to Little L and show her all the pictures and pages, or simply share toys (that are usually beyond her current capacity to play!) Squidgy loves to be around her baby sister and spends as much time as possible doing everything to involve her.
This means the key to getting my girls to twin is to dress Little L first, and subtly hint that there is a matching item nearby for her. Squidgy will more often than not bring it over and ask for me to put it on her. That's a parenting win right there!
If I hadn't known that the lovely lady behind the brand had made the items from scratch, with her new romper pattern in her latest fabric buy, I would never have guessed they were not made in a factory. The way they are put together is impeccable and the finish is nigh on perfect, I can't fault it.
