old-for-her-age

marys-dressThere is just something irresistible about dressing a baby in the clothes of their older relatives. We’ve done it with Colin’s clothes, and one of my baby dresses and now as a special treat we dressed Kivrin in two dresses that her Gramma Mary wore as a baby over 50 years ago. Nana saved the dresses and even sewed a new white under-slip for Kivrin to wear. I’m not sure what it says about us as parents when the only time we put dresses on our baby girl is so we can take pictures and try to imagine ourselves in her (tiny) place.
