Pretty Girl . . .

...or, How We Snuck in a Pair of White Shoes Right Before Labor Day.

I bought a lovely little Easter dress for Bridgette last spring but opted not to dress her in it because she couldn't walk yet.

She'd have been frustrated trying to crawl in the thing, and I'd have been frustrated by the amount of dirt it would have harvested over the day.

So here she is a few months later, sporting a chic flowery ensemble with a petticoat of tulle. She adored it. I adored her. It was one happy outfit day.

These were taken after church, so you will see vestiges of entertainment, placation, and entropy in these photos -- eating Kix, blue pen marks, unbrushed hair, wearing mom's sunglasses, examining ants, and finally, being held.

All in a day's photo shoot...

I love that she adored wearing a pretty dress. That alone speaks volumes. Lots of pretty new clothes must be in her future.

Has Bridgette gotten another haircut?
