A good friend of mine once pointed out to me that there is just something about a baby in a white onesie. It took me a while to really understand what she meant, but it is true. There is something so pure and perfectly simple about a baby, especially a freshly bathed one, in a white onesie.
There are millions of beautiful baby clothes out there, why something so boring as a white onesie? I think that it is because when your baby is in a white onesie, what you look at is just the baby. There is nothing to distract or embellish on just The Baby. It is just your precious child there for you to gaze on and adore.
When you give your baby a bath and use just pure water, you dry them, dress them, and snuggle them up close. You can smell that lovely fresh baby smell that is all their own. The baby doesn’t need anything to make her beautiful. Just being new and alive and there in your arms is all it takes. Rosy cheeks, soft little lips, tiny ears… and nothing to take your attention away.
Even a rowdy two year old who has whined and made trouble all day can be bathed and dressed in that white onesie and suddenly you have a little cherub in your arms. Just be sure you get a good long look at him before he decorates his clean whiteness with your favorite lipstick or some chocolate sauce.
Pure and simple, all a baby needs.
