A couple weeks ago I had the honor of photographing Madison in this beautiful knit dress. And the reason I say that I had the honor is because this outfit holds a lot of history in my family. You see, it's almost forty years old. When my grandmother was having babies, her family back in Argentina found a woman to hand make this darling knit outfit for my grandma's youngest baby. Unfortunately, by the time it arrived in the States, my aunt had outgrown the outfit. So it sat waiting for the next generation of girls.
So when my grandma's daughters started having daughters, we (me and my cousins) each had our chance to wear this dress for a photo or two.
Yep, I wore this little dress when I was a baby. (How cool is that?)
And Madison is the first of the next generation to get the chance to wear this beautiful dress.
I can't believe how well it's holding up for all this time. This dress looks as if it was made just a few days ago.
The craftsmanship and talent is truly amazing. I dream of having the skills to knit something like this someday. #lifegoals
Even on the back of the bloomers, there's lovely knit details. It's all so beautiful and makes my heart sing!
Madison was such a good sport, letting me snap probably over a hundred photos of her, but it's such a precious outfit and she looked so beautiful.
I can't believe how grown up she is looking all the sudden. I probably say that every single day, but it really is crazy how quickly these little ones grow.
Ah her little tummy, thigh rolls, and chunky wrists make my world go round!
The quality isn't the best in this photo, but I dug up this gem of me wearing the same outfit from my old computer. Look how curly my hair was! I was hoping Madison would have the same curls, but so far her hair is looking kind of straight ha ha
So grateful to have been able to take these darling photos of my little girl in such a special outfit. One of the first things my family talked about when they found out I was having a little girl is how excited they were to see her in this dress, and I was just tickled pink that they held on to something so beautiful all these years.
