Patchwork Madras

This dress was Tillie's.  It's from Old Navy and I adored it when I bought it, but the fit on it is tricky.  It's 3-6m, but so hard to get on babies.  Yep, it was hard for me to even get it on skinny minnie baby Tillie.  I was a little worried about getting it on Bea, but it wasn't any harder than getting on her.

I bought Tillie and Teddy these matching shirts last summer before I knew I'd have a third child to dress.  So, Tillie wore a mint dress, but Til and Ted were perfectly coordinated!

Tillie's tank is Gap Villa Oasis and her shorts are crewcuts.  I bought these shorts because I knew they'd be so cute with a Camp staff shirt, but of course the kid shirt was gray this year so she didn't wear them much at Camp.  (They're not her first choice in clothing...)  Teddy's shirt is Gap Sunkissed Staples and his shorts are Old Navy.

Happy Sunday!

Yikes!  The last week of summer!  And it kind of feels like summer is over since Tim has students tomorrow.  I'm glad that Tillie doesn't start until after Labor day this year.  I guess I better break out all the summery-summer outfits I can this week!

Bea is wearing a Ralph Lauren dress that was a gift from my friend Amy.  It's even prettier in person.

Ted-Ted is wearing his Matilda Jane/Mighty Acorns Little Os overalls.  I don't love it with the white H&M shirt under it, but I didn't think it would work without a shirt for church.  I used safety pins on the straps this time since I had to re-button them every 5 minutes last time he wore them.

I bought Tillie this Tea Collection dress at Once Upon a Child's $1 sale 2 years ago.  It's a size 3, but runs super-wide.  This is the first year that it fits in that regard.  It's now a little short, but I don't mind short lengths.  There are pink stitched stars on it that are hard to see.  It's prettier in person, but I just don't "love" it.  But, when you find Tea for $1 you buy it.

Also, she's 5 going on 15 in this picture.

Story Time

My dad let us know about a "Hometown Heroes" story time at Barnes and Noble this morning.  There was going to be a fire truck, ambulance and police car, but the mall is doing construction on the parking lot near the bookstore entrance so there wasn't a place for it.  They still had fun listening to a paramedic, a firefighter and a police officer reading books.

Tillie wore a DreamSpun tank and ruffled shorties.

Teddy's wearing a crewcuts tee and Gap madras shorts.  You can see he loved the idea of posing for a picture.

Bea's wearing a Mini-Boden crab tee(OUAC $1 Sale!) and a Gap Capri ruffled diaper cover.

Neon Coral

I'm loving this color lately.  Probably because you see it at nearly every store you go to.  This outfit was a baby gift from my Aunt.  It's was great to get a summer outfit in 3-6, as little miss is growing faster than my other kids did!  It's Carter's(for Target).

Peter's Hand-Me-Downs

This Gap Galicia bodysuit was a hand-me-down from my friends son.  I bought the Boden baggies for $1 at Once Upon a child.  This would probably have been one of my favorite outfits if I had had a boy.  Even so, Bea gets to wear it with a bow.  Teddy had this same bodysuit in 6-12m, so this won't be the last time you see her dressed as a Happy Camper!

4 Months Old and a Whole New Wardrobe

We busted out the 3-6m bins today!  Bea can still wear a lot of her 0-3, but some of it was getting too small.  I have so many new choices for her!  This is a Janie & Jack First Picnic romper dress.  J&J always runs big on my kids and this outfit is the same.  I still wanted her to wear it today.  I bought it when I was pregnant for $1 at Once Upon a Child.

Camp Love

The two big kids are rocking acorn tees today.  Tillie's stripe shirt was a "Christmas" gift from Camp.  All three kids got one, but Bea and Ted need a little more growing time for theirs.  Tillie should be able to wear hers for a while.  She's wearing hers with shorties I made from Old Navy leggings.
Before I received the new striped acorns Tim had asked for a navy acorn to be made for Ted.  He hasn't had an acorn tee since 12m and he LOVES to match his Daddy.  He's wearing it with Gap patchwork madras shorts.

My brother gave the kids a family pass to the zoo for their birthdays and we surprised them with using it this morning.  The weather is decidedly weird, as everyone was wearing jeans and long sleeves IN AUGUST.  It warmed up a bit by this afternoon, but still, so weird.  I don't have a good feeling about this winter.

Bea is wearing a Naartjie outfit I bought when we were in Chicago two weeks ago.  It's darling on her, but it's hard to get a great picture of it.

Teddy's wearing a Tea Collection tee I got at Snapdragon's tent sale in July.  I like that it's a different style from all his crewcuts tees.  His jeans are Gap and his shoes are Converse.

Tillie's wearing a DreamSpun halter with a crewcuts cardigan and Gap skinny jeans.  Her TOMS are a perfect match to the flower on her top!

Rosy Gingham

Today Bea is wearing a Genuine Kids dress that was a baby gift when Tillie was born from my cousin Renee.  It looks just as cute on Bea!
