Some Things Never Get Old

Tonight I was going through Kate's drawers and the old boxes of hand-me-downs from her sisters, when I ran into this little blue dress. I got SOOO sad when I saw it. There are just some clothes that are meant for certain kids and this dress was for Halle. As soon as I saw it I couldn't help but remember her wearing it. It brought out the pretty blue color of her eyes so well. I almost couldn't bear giving it to Kate.

Well, Halle came around the corner and saw me looking at it, so I told her that it used to be one of my favorite little dresses on her. She BEGGED me to let her have it as a shirt now. I told her to try it on (thinking that it would be way too small and that she'd let me give it to Kate). And you know what, it worked for her. It looks like a cute little baby doll shirt and it fits her perfectly. So, I am letting her keep it for a shirt and am going to enjoy seeing my little Halle wearing it again for another year or so.

How funny! It figures that 'she' would be able to still wear it!

Oh that is so cute! I'm glad she can make her momma happy a while longer in that blue "dress".

Look how cute she is! That dress was really meant for her, wasn't it?

Brilliant! I'd never know that wasn't a real shirt--I've seen many cut in that same style. Yaay for you :)(and Halle too!).

I hate to spoil your fun, but this is definitely NOT going to work with any of Carter's clothes...
