Army_Princess...I cant stop laughing at that picture of your son!
Thanks!!!!! It is still his favorite shirt. He has also taken to a beautiful pink ball gown in the dress up bucket at preschool. I almost always arrive to pick him up and see him dancing to "Beauty and the Beast" while wearing it LOL

I think I already posted on this thread during it's "first life", but just to reiterate my opinion on the matter - here is a recent pic of my son in his sister's hand-me-down dipe.

You know I have heard people say this a few times but does anyone have any actual references for it? Just curious!

I put DS in some of his big sisters stuff. I don't tend toward the really frilly stuff but whatever. He wears pink diapers too.

If he's older and expresses an interest or preference then I see no reason to deny (unless that preference is inappropriate for any child!)
