Sweet Pictures

As I'm sure you're all aware, Labor Day is fast approaching. For old-fashioned ladies like me (haha) this means one more week to wear all of our favorite summer clothes because once Labor Day rolls around no more white! This means that all of Aubrey's sweet little summer dresses and white sandals will be packed away and sent to the attic. So, naturally, I'm trying to get one more wear out of all of her sweet little summer outfits that have become my favorites. I'm also taking lots of pictures. Because I am feeling quite sentimental about the fact that Aubrey will never wear these clothes again. Yall, some of these clothes I bought for her before she was even born! And now the time has come to pack them away. I console myself with the thought of all of the cute fall/winter clothes I can now buy for her! :o)

Anyway, yesterday was one of those days. She was wearing an outfit that I'm especially fond of for the last time. Yes, this is one of the ones I got before she was born. Any of you who know us (or have ever looked at any of our pictures) will have seen this outfit a thousand times. But still, I love it. I didn't get a chance to take any pictures yesterday (we were driving to Canton to order a birthday cake -- story for another post). Last night I had Bunco, and David was babysitting Aubrey. I told him that if he could snap a cute picture or two of Aubrey in this outfit one last time, I would be forever in his debt. As usually, he went above and beyond. He did not just snap a picture or two. Oh no. He snapped over 300 pictures!! I kid you not! I guess that means I'm forever in his debt because he definitely got some cute ones ;o) Here are some of my favorites.

The things she gets away with when Daddy is babysitting! ;o)

Carrie, that first one is seriously one of the prettiest pictures ever. She could be in a magazine!

Those pictures are great! Are you going to let us see the rest of the 331 anytime soon?

p.s. you crack me up with the summer vs. winter clothes. My mom (who is an etiquette nazi and could trade places with miss manners in a second) says that I'm too legalistic about the white thing when it involves AP. Apparently, as long as it's not a "summery" motif or style, you're golden through the Winter, when it comes to babies and children. But I'm really OCD and I don't know if I can do it!

I feel the same way and do not wear white. I still wear my Lilly as long as it's not too summery. It's so sad to pack up the baby stuff since we know it will no longer fit. Have you considered making or having made a baby quilt with her clothes. I am considering it but wonder if I have another girl would I regret it. So many decisions :0!
However, it's so fun to go buy new stuff. Today, I found Evie the most precious Christmas smocked dress. Can't decide between Christmas trees or snowmen but man are they cute! Love the picture of your sweet daughter!
