Opinion Needed

Scott's mom was down for a visit last weekend. Like any good Grandma, she was concerned that I'm not keeping Owen warm enough when we go outside. In her defense, it is a lot colder here than in Seattle, but in my defense we've just come off a single digit cold spell, so 40 degrees felt like spring. (Okay, okay, 40 degrees probably still warrants a jacket, but I was to lazy to wrestle with it.)

But that's not what I need an opinion on. Here's the story:

We stopped in at Bambini (my favorite baby/kids store) to get another sleep sack for Owen. I was showing Ethel all their cool products, and she offered to buy Owen a pair of "Baby Legs" - score! They're basically long leg warmers that are supper stretchy, so they fit from birth to age 2. The idea is that baby stays just as warm as if wearing pants, but you don't have to mess with snaps and waistbands for diaper changes. Anyway, I picked the giraffe print, which I think is supper cute, but Scott thinks they are horrendous...

Tell me your thoughts. Can we go out in public like this?

Sorry Ethel, not the best picture, but we gotta show off the Baby Legs.

Oh, and I did use them as an extra layer when we took Owen out hiking last weekend. They were super convenient. When he got cold, I just slid the baby legs on under his romper. Easy - but are they cute?

sorry sis, but those are weird looking.

I am also not a huge fan of the baby legs trend, but I know many who are, so go with your gut! If you love them, go for it girl!

My mom voted that they would be cuter in frog print, but she's a fan of anything that keeps the baby warm. Just had to post that vote as well.

I think those are amazing and certainly wish they had been available when C & T were little - especially C as he did not have long pants until he was two (-:
I vote 'yes' on the baby legs and 'yes' on the giraffe print. Owen is such a cutie he'd look good in anything. Hugs from our house.

well ... they'd be cute if he were a girl ... 'cause they're kinda like tights.

sorry darlin', but gotta keep the boy's masculinity in mind! ;)

Well, how to be diplomatic... I think it depends on the occasion??
