Little Allison

I have a few outfits that were mine when I was little. Not too long ago, I decided that if I was ever going to try them on Reagan, I better hurry or she'd be too big to wear them! They're a little dated, so she would never wear them out, but I did have fun dressing her up, and she really enjoyed the special attention and getting to sit on the counter in the bathroom! I looked for a picture of myself in the same dresses, but couldn't find one. Mom must have them all. Oh, well! Reagan's pretty enough without any old pictures of me to take away from her!

This outfit almost didn't fit! You can see how small the little bonnet looks on her head. Of course, Reagan's head is kind of big anyway, so that didn't help! The bonnet matches the little coat and dress. I feel like I wore this outfit on my first Easter which would have been around my first birthday. I could be wrong, but that's what I'm thinking. So I wore it several months younger than Reagan is now.

The lighting is a little off because I turned off the flash so it wouldn't reflect off the mirror.




Seriously, Mom? Was Laura Ingalls your next-door neighbor?

And where were the boys during this Reagan-only photo shoot? Yelling at us from the other side of the bathroom door! There just wasn't enough room for all five of us in this small bathroom!

Oh Ali!
Your kids are getting cuter and cuter every day, if that is even possible!

My mom gave me a few dresses that were mine and I have had professional photos of my daughter taken in them even though they were very dated (1973). I had them framed next to photos of me in the same dress and it is really cute.
