Pickle's Dress

I was looking through my (extremely disorganized)picture files to find something for Candid Carrie's Phriday Foto Phiesta and I came across some of Pickle from a few months ago:

What truck me about these is that she's wearing the very first dress I ever bought her--when she was still in utero!

When I found out I was having a girl (after four boys) I tried to control myself at first and not go crazy with the girl clothes, but one day when I was at Nordstrom, they had just put out all the beautiful spring dresses and I couldn't help myself!


This dress seemed so perfect and girly--and I bought it in a size 24 month even though she hadn't been born.
But now here she is wearing it--so crazy how time flies!!

Happy Friday!!

I soooo understand what you mean!! My doc wanted to induce me
Dec 26th and I made him wait so I could go clothes shopping for her at the after Christmas also!! Bought Christmas outfits and dresses up to 24 mos.!

Love that dress, good job!

Good call on the dress. It's gorgeous, and she wears it so well. I can totally relate, too. I've been looking at frilly dresses and sparkly shoes for years, just waiting for a little girl to buy them for. It's so fun, isn't it?

What a beautiful dress for a beautiful little girl!

Yeah, its exciting buying clothes for any baby....I know I loved doing that when I was preggers with Z.....but it is different buying those little dresses. I had to get that out of my system with my niece and her 2 girls....

I had 4 boys an 9 years later a girl... My Mama told me she ALWAYS looked like she was ready to go to church...she was ALWAYS dressed up!
Now is a different story. We don't even have the same taste. Enjoy it while you can! :)

Three things disturb me about these photos:

1. Pickle is posing...
2. Pickle doesn't have bacon...
3. Pickle doesn't have any tears...

Way to go Pickle!

So precious!! And isn't that the best part of having a little girl-especially if they are girly girls. My granddaughter will not wear anything but "gresses" (she's three) so I have tons of fun buying her clothes. I would have been heartbroken is she was a tomboy....

Mimi said...

The boys clothes are cute, but I wanted to dress up a little girl SO bad. Looking at these pictures of Pickle brought all that back!

Ashley said...

This is beautiful. So girly!! Just precious.

I'll tell you a secret but don't tell anyone else, okay. I don't have any children, yet (not even pregnant) but I already know how I am going to decorate my nursery (boy or girl) and made my first purchase for the 'one day' baby in Colombia! Haha! I'm a little crazy!

Susie said...

She's just so pretty:-)

Jen said...

I love it! I felt the same way after having 3 boys. Love the boys but there is just something about a girl.

Jennifer said...

Beautiful dress, gorgeous girl. =)

What a sweetie.

Auds at Barking Mad said...

I can relate! And how!

When I found out the Little Imp was a girl, and I knew she'd be my last child...I kinda went nuts shopping for her.

We are STILL - and she just turned three - going through all those clothes from that shopping spree alone.

Pickle's dress is simply gorgeous and the photos are wonderful!

Shannon said...

So cute! After you having four boys, I can totally understand the shopping frenzy for girlie stuff!

That dress is totally gorgeous, as is the little darling wearing it :-)

I'm on my third pregnancy, and every time I get pregnant I always end up buying a fluffy, sparkly, tulle-filled dress. Then I find out I'm having a boy and one of my friends gets a fluffy, sparkly, tulle-filled dress for their baby girl. It's still fun!

Butterfly Kisses said...

She is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors! I love buying clothes for Breelyn. Girls are just so much fun to shop for!

She is just beautiful in that dress! Amazing how quickly the time flies, isn't it?
