While we were in China we made our very first Hello Kitty purchase, an alarm clock. No idea why, because Lilah was only 18 months old and in all seriousness, as brand new first time parents in a different time zone, we definitely didn't need an alarm clock! Lilah was in fact our very own alarm clock! However we bought it, but there wasn't much interest shown in it. In fact, here is a picture of her with it while we were in China. I think her look says it all!
Fast forward several months... My sweet cousin Kerry (from Ireland) sent Lilah a pair of gorgeous pink Hello Kitty pajamas this past summer and well, Lilah loved loved loved them. We would be heading up the stairs to get ready for bed in the evening and she would excitedly proclaim "Heywow Titty dammies". She even used to ask if she could wear them during her midday naps. She EVEN used to ask if she could wear them as daytime clothes! Yes, she definitely loved them and she still does, but unfortunately it's wayyy too cold to wear them now. Which explains why I found a dress in Montréal that I couldn't put down, I just knew she would love love love it. I wasn't disappointed. Our love for Hello Kitty is still alive in this house! It is also alive this season in the H&M kids store. Really really 'over-the-top' alive!
