JoAnna Garcia Swisher Loves Dressing Her Daughter Up Like Her Mini-Me (Whether She Likes It or Not)

11/19/2015 at 09:30 AM ET

JoAnna Garcia Swisher loves the tiny toddler fashions available to dress her daughter Emerson Jay in — unfortunately, the 2-year-old doesn’t quite feel the same way.

“I love dressing Emme up like a little mini,” she says in an interview for Eva Amurri Martino‘s lifestyle blog, Happily Eva After. “It’s truly one of my favorite things to do. I was warned she might not always be amenable to wearing what I have hand picked for her, but never knew how sad and frustrating it would be when she put her foot down.

The Astronaut Wives’ Club star says her daughter is partial to rain boots and costumes from Disney’s Frozen — in particular, Elsa dresses from Target.

“She even has strong opinions about what I wear,” the 36-year-old, who will next guest-star on Grandfathered, shares. “She’s quick to let me know if she isn’t impressed, but if she gives me her stamp of approval as I’m walking out the door, I can’t help but feel like a million bucks.”

JoAnna Garcia Swisher: My 2-Year-Old Is ‘Very Particular’ About Her Clothes

07/15/2015 at 01:50 PM ET

JoAnna Garcia Swisher‘s 2-year-old daughter Emerson Jay has some happy feet — and she takes them very seriously.

“Today was her first ballet class,” Garcia Swisher, 35, said on Tuesday night at Switch Bel Air’s Shop for a Cure event supporting the Charlotte and Gwenyth Gray Foundation. “It’s just so unbelievable. When I was putting her shoes on, she said, ‘Mama, be careful, that hurts.’ ”

The new mom — who, along with husband Nick Swisher, was treated to flowers from the online floral delivery service The Bouqs and wine from subscription wine service Club W during their evening out — is also impressed with Emerson’s budding sense of style.

“She’s getting to a place right now where she’s very particular. We usually start from the shoes that she chooses and then I build an outfit off of that,” explains The Astronaut Wives Club star.
