Today Sophia was in an excellent mood so I took the opportunity to put her back in her blessing dress and take a picture. It still fits but her biceps are starting to get so big from all those push-ups she's been doing...so the arms were a little tight. But I thought you'd all enjoy seeing these. As for the bow - I was recently talking to Jen about bows and she made the comment that she is just now starting to put bigger bows on Natalie now that Nat is bigger. I responded that I've waited so long to have a baby I could put a bow on that I'm not messing around. Go big or go home. My sweet little princess will be decked out in giant bows until she gets old enough to tell me how much she hates them. And then I'll just sneak into her room and put them on her while she's sleeping and I'll continue that until she gets married (though, I'll most likely want to do it anytime she's visiting me).

The blanket pictures are of our newest favorite blanket! My SIL, Sara has made quilts for each of her neices/nephews and probably other people, too. I always look forward to seeing her new creation with each new child. I had originally decided on a cherry print for my nursery, but then got lazy and decided to buy something. I'm glad Sara had already bought the fabric, though. I LOVE THIS BLANKET! Now Sophie has a gee-gee! Thanks, Sara!

See what I mean about how she couldn't possibly get any cuter and then she just magically does??? I am SOOOO all over the giant bow thing. I don't have any yet, but believe me, I WILL. I just bought more pink things for the closet today! Oh, is her dress white-white? Or like, ivory-white? Hard to tell in the pictures. A few years ago in Germany I found an Italian satin christening dress on clearance and had to snap it up in hopes of one day having a girl to wear it. It's definitely ivory, though. Do you think it really matters for a blessing dress??? Looking for an LDS opinion on this...

And what a fabulous quilt! Sara strikes again...

Okay, this is in response to your last ten entries that I just read, not just this one. You are so funny! I love it! Thank you for reminding me of the humor to be found in the challenges of motherhood. SO glad Sophia's sleep is going well, by the way.

She's so cute! A beautiful dress for a beautiful baby girl. Love the BIG bow. I was never one for bows on my girls, but Sophia pulls off the look quite well.

Chrysta - personal preference reigns on the blessing dress IMO.

Anna, she's SO pretty! And I think she's really starting to look like her own person...so beautiful. The bow works...keep it up. Oh, and way to go Sara...the quilt is incredible!
