Mom Takes Adorable Pics of Baby Daughter Dressed as Female Icons

Combined Shape

One of the fun parts about having kids is being able to dress them up. While they still have no interest in what they’re wearing, mom has free range to select whatever she’d like for her little ones.

That’s half the fun of a baby shower: oohing and ahhing over all the doll-sized get-ups and outfits.

Influential Woman Pt. 1: Frida Kahlo ??? who was Frida Kahlo: a Mexican artist who painted many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country’s popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. ??? <sourced from Wikipedia and biography.com> . #fridakahlo #fridakahloinspired #fridakahloart #fridakahlolovers #kahlo #frida #influentialwomen #womaninhistory #unibrow #famousartist #selfportraitartist #floralheadband #floralheadpiece #babies #babygirl #babyblueeyes #instababies #babiesofinsta #babiesofinstagram #babyphotography #babyphotooftheday #babyphotoshoot #momphotographer #momswithcameras #funnybaby #funnybabies #funnybabypics #ellenratemybaby #lilladylibertyj

It’s probably also a bit of what’s behind those who find Toddlers and Tiaras entrancing. The glitz, the glam — what little girl wouldn’t want to dress like a princess every day?

Well one mom has taken the dress-up idea and gone in a different direction. Jenelle Wexler has been featuring her handiwork and her daughter Liberty’s amenable behavior on Instagram.

Influential woman Pt 2: Betsy Ross ❤️???. Who was Betsy Ross: widely credited with making the first American flag. According to family tradition, upon a visit from General George Washington, commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, in 1776, Ross convinced George Washington to change the shape of the stars he had sketched for the flag from six-pointed to five-pointed by demonstrating that it was easier and speedier to cut the latter. . <sourced from Wikipedia and biography.com> . #babies #babiesofinsta #babiesofinstagram #babygirl #babyblueeyes #babyphotography #babyphotooftheday #momphotographer #momswithcameras #funnybaby #funnybabyphoto #flagday #flagday2018 #betsyross #betsyrossflag #influentialwomen #americanflag #womaninhistory #ellenratemybaby #lilladylibertyj

It started with Frida Kahlo. Kahlo is one of Wexler’s favorite artists, so she thought why not dress up her daughter like the famous woman?

She had to assemble the clothing and headpiece, but the final product was not only strikingly accurate, it was ridiculously adorable.

Influential woman Pt 6: Mother Teresa ✝️ Nun and missionary Mother Teresa, known in the Catholic church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, devoted her life to caring for the sick and poor. Born in Macedonia to parents of Albanian-descent and having taught in India for 17 years, Mother Teresa experienced her “call within a call” in 1946. Her order established a hospice; centers for the blind, aged and disabled; and a leper colony. In 1979 she received the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work. .✝️ <sourced from Wikipedia and biography.com>. . #babies #babygirl #babyblueeyes #babiesofinsta #babiesofinstagram #instababygirl #babyphotography #babyphotooftheday #momphotographer #momswithcameras #babyphotoshoot #motherteresa #motherteresa? #nobelpeaceprize #influentialwomen #catholic #loveforeveryone #nun #missionary #babyofinstagram #babyofig #kidphotography #infantphotography #babyshoot #ellenratemybaby #ellendegeneres #lilladylibertyj

After getting a favorable response to the first try, the industrious mom decided to keep on with it, and now her daughter has sported dozens of different outfits.

The looks are so characteristic that it’s easy to see which leading ladies the girl is dressing like.

“We come up with the idea and then I research the woman that I’m portraying,” Wexler said, according to People. “Then, I figure out their bio and what outfit I can come up with that is best going to portray the reference picture that I’m using. Then, my mind gets busy figuring out what kind of costume I can make her.”

Mom says that Liberty has no idea what’s happening, but seems pretty content with the whole process.

Influential woman Pt 14: Queen Elizabeth II ? Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain is the longest-reigning monarch in British history. She celebrated 65 years on the throne in February 2017 with her Sapphire Jubilee. As the longest-serving monarch in British history, she has tried to make her reign more modern and sensitive to a changing public while maintaining traditions associated with the crown. Queen Elizabeth’s long and mainly peaceful reign has been marked by vast changes in her people’s lives, in her country’s power, how Britain is viewed abroad and how the monarchy is regarded and portrayed. As a constitutional monarch, Elizabeth does not weigh in on political matters, nor does she reveal her political views. However, she confers regularly with her prime ministers.. <sourced from Wikipedia and biography.com>@queenelizabeth @queen_elizabeth_fanpage .. . #instababy #cameramama #momphotographer #thatsdarling #candidchildhood #candidmotherhood #cutekids #cutebabies #ig_baby #clickinmoms #ellenratemybaby #babieswithstyle #babiesofinsta #teammotherly #momstyle #babyfashionista #ohheymama #babyphotoshoot #babyphotography #babyphotoprops #queenelizabeth #queenofgreatbritain #queenofengland #sapphirejubilee #allhailthequeen #queenelizabethii #royalfamily #royalty?#lilladylibertyj

“I try to make as much as I can during nap time or when the kids go to bed,” Wexler said. “Then, it’s usually ready first thing in the morning that I take the photos of her.”

“It’s really awesome to know that something that’s just a hobby of mine is bringing a lot of people joy.”

But not only are people being entertained by Wexler’s creativity and her daughter’s cuteness, they’re learning about influential women of the past, too.

“But I’m having a lot of other people say, ‘I’m learning. You’re teaching me something. I just learned something today,’ and that, for me, is really neat,” Wexler said.
