@The Lady of Shalott Yes, that's my exact problem with Laurie/Amy. Laurie had his heart set on marrying a March girl and Amy was the only one left basically. That made me sad.
If LW1 wants to ease into wearing her dressier stuff, I suggest nice tshirts? I have a couple of nicely fitted tshirts from JCrew and Target and I wear them under blazers (with jeans) and with pencil skirts all the time. With tshirt and blazers you kind of look like Ellen, but I like that.
@MmeLibrarian i conned my niece into crawling more by opening the photobooth application on my computer so she could see herself and placing the computer like 4 feet away. Plus side is that I could also video tape her doing it this way and send to her parents! I know there's a thing about screens and babies but she loved it and is a normal 3 year old now.
