I used to a little obsessive when it came to dressing the boys, they always had to match. Now I actually prefer that they just coordinate......what do you prefer???

I do a little bit of both. Sometimes coordinating, sometimes the same, and sometimes completely different. It partially has to do with what's available at the time and sometimes it's my mood. I more often dress them the same if a relative who bought them the matching set is coming over for a visit. Other times, It's just because it's cute and I felt like doing it. I don't like matching that often though.

We have tons of matching clothes for later on that other people gave us. We only bought one or two matching things. Right now they just wear whatever we happen to pull out of the dresser that fits. I don't care if it matches, coordinates or is for a boy. As long as we get them dressed I'm happy for now.

This is funny. When I was pregnant I knew I didn't want them matching exactly- and I still don't, although for some things it is easier. I knew I would at least sometimes want to coordinate, but now that they are here... I have become a FREAK about it!! They HAVE TO coordinate or be wearing something similar. Otherwise I feel like 1 is getting different treatment or something. Like, I could never put 1 in pants and 1 in a skirt, UNLESS they had shirts or whatever that coordinated. If 1 wears jeans, the other has to as well. I always buy coordinating or the same shirt, different color, etc. Never thought I'd be this weird about it!!

Oh, I'm not so much of a freak about it that when I have to change 1 mid- day for drooling or whatever on an outfit that I change the other. Nope. I just change 1.

Both matching and coordinating (sometimes neither if it's one of those days!) I'm finding I like them to coordinate rather than completely match, but on the other hand, if I find a really cute outfit I have a hard time buying only one! The girls look so different from eachother that it almost looks silly putting them in matching outfits these days...like I'm trying to make them be twins or something. Silly, I know! Lol!

They are almost always in identical outfits (even PJ's), once in a while we do coordinating, but not that often.

I guess I'll do it now while I can get away with it....

I bought alot of Sleep N Plays that don't match....I figure that's what they will be in the majority of the time in October and for just something to change into from a diaper explosion or spit up it doesn't necessarily need to match.
