OK, so it’s only one girl. And it’s not exactly the dress Maria von Trapp was enivisioning. But here is sweet little Ada amongst the bluebonnets. She turns eight on Sunday and this is the dress she’ll wear to the baptism (not during the actual baptism because it’s blue and she has to wear white during the baptism itself. It’s also silk and the water would ruin it).
Now that I think about it this is a really braggy picture. Look at my beautiful daughter in her beautiful dress! Look at this lovely scenery! Isn’t Texas the best? Aren’t you super impressed that there’s a horse in the picture?
The horse isn’t ours, neither are the bluebonnets (thanks for letting us come out to your Ranch, Lisa!) I did make the dress–true–but I made it for India’s baptism and so that makes it a hand-me-down more than an heirloom. (I got Ada to wear it by telling her it matched her eyes.)
There’s a lot of weirdness surrounding posts and pictures on blogs/facebook/instagram. It’s hard to tell where information turns into bragging which turns into obnoxiousness. This is what I’m discussing over at Segullah today. Come and give me your 2¢!
