My Little Fashionista

Last Sunday, for Mother's Day, I dressed Sara Madalin in the most beautiful beaded and smocked, silk , ankle length Strasburg dress. My friend Shellie and I had picked it our for her to wear to a wedding a while back, and I knew I also wanted to have her wear it on Mother's Day. She was so pretty in it.

When we got to church, I took her to the nursery. The first thing she did was crawl into the cubbies where the toys are stored. I thought it was so cute and funny. So, of course, I snapped a picture. Then I went off to my Sunday school class to teach.

When I went back to the nursery to check on her between Sunday school and church, this is what I found.

Evidently, that beautiful beaded and smocked ankle length silk dress was hindering her crawling abilities.

Silk Strasburg dress - More money than Daddy needs to know about

This week, she's wearing a diaper and bloomers to nursery.

My mom wisely told me that I wouldn't be able to dress the girls in many dresses during the crawling stage. I was so glad when Evelyn started walking so that she could wear dresses again! :)

I remember that same thing that Melanie stated when Natalie was in that stage as much as I love putting her in pretty dresses we had to do short ones or something else because crawling is just so frustrating to them when wearing their Sunday Best!

I also love your statement about the Strasburg dress. Daddies (and Poppa) don't need to know everything. I wouldn't tell Natalie's mommy that I ordered her another gymboree swimsuit in front of Natalie's Poppa. Poppas nor Daddies really get Mommies and Mimi's do!
