Beatrix's Baptism

As is the case with all of my children's baptisms, I don't have good pictures.  These are actually the best out of the three.  Yeah.

Beatrix wore a Ralph Lauren dress I bought at Once Upon a Child's $1 sale last year.  It may even have been before I was pregnant with her.  Who could pass up this deal!?  It's a 3-6m, but not to crazily big on her.
Her bow is Dear Grace and Parker and her necklace is Premier Designs.  I bought one for myself when I was high school age, and it's since been passed down to Tillie.  When I was invited to a party a couple years ago I bought another one just in case I ever had another daughter.  Hooray for a non hand-me-down for the second daughter.

Tillie's wearing a coordinating Ralph Lauren dress I found for sale on a message board late last winter.  What were the chances!?  It's a 4, but I like how it fits her.  Teddy's wearing  crewcuts jersey polo and light weight pull-on chino shorts.  They're both wearing Salt-Water sandals.

And all three together.  They didn't turn out great, but they really did try.

My Sweet Girl

I've wanted Tillie to wear this outfit for awhile, but I did have both pieces at the same house at the same time until now.  The vintage print tank is DreamSpun and the skirt is Matilda Jane.  Sorry for the bright lighting, it really was darling on her.

Pretty Bea

I bought this Ralph Lauren dress from Once Upon A Child's dollar sale when I was pregnant. Most of Tillie's blue hand-me-downs don't look great on Bea, but this one seems to work. The bloomers are Hanna Andersson I bought for less than a $1 at a garage sale when I was pregnant with Ted. The dress has a matching diaper cover, but the cool temps today made me look for something warmer.

More Swim

You saw one set of the kids swimwear on the 4th, but here are their other suits this summer.

Glamorous Tillie in her two-piece Circo tankini.  She picked the gold Salt-Waters and they really work.  The bottoms on this 5t suit are too big and while Tillie likes this suit, she has requested that I buy more one-pieces for next summer.

Because I'm a sucker for coordinating, I got Teddy this Gap color-blocked suit.  It's an 18-24m and I'm constantly pulling it up.  He's three months from three people!

A Southern Sunday

I found this Kelly's Kids lobster Jon-Jon at a thrift store last summer for $1.50.  I'm so glad it finally fits him!  Salt-Water sandals were the obvious footwear choice.

Tillie's is wearing a Georgia Grace Kalidescope Yoke dress from last spring.  It's a 4 and still is a bit big.  I'm just glad still can fit into her Livie & Luca Blooms at the same time.  Her bow and necklace are DreamSpun.

Bea is wearing a Georgia Grace  top from last spring that I got on sale.  It's a 6m and too big, but it was the most "Southern" thing I had for her to wear.  (No great bubble rompers or bishop dresses in her closet right now. ;) )

All The Colors!

It's kind of overwhelming to be able to choose anything out of their closets after limiting myself to red, white and blue for a week.  You can see from Ted's outfit that it can be hard to break out of the mold.

Bea is wearing a Carter's outfit that was a baby gift.  I think it's such a sweet little outfit, but it's also an outfit I would wear, with a few modifications.  (I probably don't need a tank top embroidered with "sweetheart".)

Teddy's wearing crewcuts shorts and a tee.  When I bought these shorts I didn't realize they were a dark navy stripe and not black.  They're surprisingly hard to match to anything he has.  I don't really love this combo, but in theory it works.

Happy 4th of July!

I hope you're ready for parades, hot dogs and fireworks!
I promise Bea didn't fall.

 Tillie's wearing a Gap Dressy Styles dress I got for $3 at a consignment sale.  It's hard to see, but there are stars all over it.

Teddy is wearing a Gap slub tee from this summer with big gingham shorts from last summer.  I would have rather him have a red shirt or a blue shirt closer to the color of his shorts, but I got this tee cheap, so I went with it.  Blue is currently his favorite color, so he's happy.

Bea is wearing a Gymboree Sailor Baby outfit.  I adore it.

At Uncle Matt's house they all went in the pool.

Tillie's swimsuit is Circo from Target.

I bought Tillie's because it coordinated with Bea's Gymboree suit.

Teddy's suit is from Gap.

After swimming, Tillie wanted to wear the extra dress I had packed for her.  It's the Baby Sara dress I won from My Little Jules a few years ago.  It's a size 3, but obviously sized very generously.

Long Sleeves

I laid out all of the kids clothes for the whole week last Friday.  This morning I had to dig in their drawers to find long sleeves for layering!

Ted's worn this crewcuts "Sea Legs" tee and Gap Americana shorts recently, but I really love the two pieces together.  Also, since Til is wearing a shirt about the sea, I thought it would be cute to match.


Tillie's is wearing a crewcuts outfit with a "The sea is my home" tee and cowgirl shorts.  The gold Salt-Waters were from J.Crew sale a couple years ago as well.

Little Bea is wearing a Gap striped dress I got for 50 cents at the thrift store.  Paired with a red Dear Grace & Parker bow, she's a reverse flag.

Teddy spilled his grape juice at breakfast and Tillie was complaining about the sequins itching, so they both wanted to change clothes by 9:15.  Fine.  I pulled out the staff kid shirts from 2 years ago and added a Gap Surf skirt for Tillie and Osh Kosh jeans for Teddy.  If I had been thinking I would have saved yesterdays striped Mini-Boden baggies for Ted, but that might have been over the top matching anyway.

Bermudas and Baggies

It's a cooler day today, so all the kids are wearing longer shorts.

Tillie is wearing a Gap top from a garage sale with Gap denim bermudas.

Ted-Ted is wearing a Janie & Jack lobster tee with Mini-Boden baggies.  He's a huge fan of his new Native knock-offs from Gap.  I got them for $5 this week.  He can put them on himself.  Worth every penny.

Beatrix is wearing the outfit Tillie wore for her first 4th of July.  The bodysuit is from Old Navy and the cropped pants are Carter's.  I think I got them for $1 before Til was born.

A Baby in a Hat

I mean, seriously.  My baby is the cutest.  When she's wearing outfits like this Gymboree Sailor Baby romper and hat it's just over the top.  She needed the hat because it was sprinkling a bit this morning on our walk to the dinning hall.  Obviously.

Teddy's wearing a crewcuts anchor tee with light-weight shorts.  This boy?  I love him so much.


Tillie's wearing a sparkle star Gap tank with a Gap denim ruffle skirt.  This outfit looked cuter in person and in lighting that wasn't dim morning cabin light.
