Cold Snap

It's freezing today!  Not that I'm complaining, but it just seems so weird that Tillie asked for a coat at 10:30am the last week of July.  It is nice to have all the windows open and it's perfect for the yardwork Tim is doing today.

Bea is wearing a Mini-Bode strawberry tee with Gap skinny jeans.  I mean, how cute is this?  It almost makes me ready for fall.
Only "almost" folks.  I'd like to keep my last month of the summer, please.

Teddy's wearing a crewcuts glow in the dark video game tee with blue chino shorts and TOMS.  I love the long sleeve tee with shorts look on little boys.

Family Reunion

Tillie wore a (no brand) bubble knot top and DreamSpun leggings to my family reunion today.  I found the top for 50% off at a local consignment store.  When I showed my cousin she said she *almost* bought it a couple days before.  I guess we'll have to let her borrow it!  It's a three, but works on my slim girl still.  I decided today that I don't really love knot tops without shirt under them.  If it still fits, I think it would look great layered with a cream tee, skinny jeans and boots this fall.

Also, bonus Uncle Philip photobomb.

French Fashions!

When my dad went to Europe early this summer I asked him to buy some clothes for my kids.  I'm not going to lie, I was a little worried about what he would pick out, so I gave him a few suggestions. 1. No "airport t-shirts".  2.  Tillie likes dresses. 3.  Teddy would be over the moon with a foreign fire truck shirt.  He ended up having everyone in his group looking for fire trucks, but none were found.  Instead he bought these outfits at Okaïdi ins Strausbourg and knocked it out of the park.  It was completely unintentional, but Teddy's shirt really ties all the colors together! (Dress, Cardigan, Dress, I never found Ted's shirt online.)
Teddy's chinos are crewcuts and he's also wearing navy TOMS.  Tillie's wearing an over-sized DreamSpun bow and crewcuts glitter ballet flats.  (He also bought Tillie a graphic tee that ties the cardigan to the dress, but we decided not to wear it today.)  Bea's wearing a Dear Grace and Parker headband.

Petting Farm

Tillie thought her Georgia Grace 'Simple Life' halter would be perfect for the petting farm because it has chicks on it.  she'd also trying to convince me that it's good for staying home playing since it has clotheslines on it.  We'll see about that.  She's also wearing Gap jeans, Salt-Water sandals and a DreamSpun bow.

Teddy's wearing a crewcuts striped tee with Gap jeans and shoes.  He vetoed my first choice of a gingham button-up, but this actually matched Tillie better anyway!

Bea's wearing a Gap Outlet denim jumper with a Carter's bodysuit.  Her headband is Dear Grace & Parker.

So Practical

Every baby should wear shift dresses... I see why the Janie and Jack dress was left for the $1 sale at Once Upon a Child.  It just doesn't suit an infant.  It'd be perfect for Til though!

Too Big!

Yep, that's my 3 month old trying to sit up.  She's wearing a Baby Lulu romper from Once Upon a Child. either the $1 sale or 50% off.  It's also the first 6m item she's worn, but it does run small.

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!
