Cuter Than I Ever Imagined


What do you think of that dress?

I bought that dress four years ago. It was a gift for my brand new niece, Abigail. I loved it. I loved it so much that I couldn't part with it. It was silly to keep a dress when, at the time, I had a two year old boy, but I knew my sister could never love that dress the way I did so I hung it in Jacob's closet under the justification that number two, our last baby, might be a girl and I would need it then. A year and a half later we found out number two would not, in fact, be a girl so I pulled the dress from the closet and replaced it with little blue numbers. I tried twice to ship that dress on to others who had birthed baby girls, but I couldn't do it. No one could love the dress as much as I did, so I wrapped it in blue tissue paper and stored it in the depths of our cedar chest hoping that one day I would present it to my granddaughter, if it lasted that long.


Yesterday, I remembered the dress.


I may be a boymom at heart, but I am so glad I finally have someone to wear the dress.

She's a cutie, and yes, the dress looks very nice.

She's gorgeous and looks like a little lady in her dress. I think she's going to be your child that will "pose" for the camera too. She seems to "work" the camera :)

Love the little dress. Oh so cute on her. And now I don't feel so guilty about the cute little pink knitted hat I bought for a friend who had a baby, then at the last minute kept it for myself. (I have one boy...with hopes for a girl in the future.)

That is definitely her color....she's just precious!

I did that with a tiny little girl shirt I bought 9 years ago... and forgot to put it on Corinne before she outgrew it! It is a very sweet dress. And she's gotten so beautiful!

Definately worth the wait, don't you think? That dress was made for her. Go ahead and keep it for her daughter.

I came across your site because of boys...I have 2, a 3.5 year old and a one year old. I love love love them, but I too have a dress in the closet...maybe someday I'll be able to share the same blog.

Too cute.
