Jim is one of five boys. Before Carolyn was born, there was only one granddaughter in his family and six grandsons. I fully expected to be the mom of three boys. We were pleasantly surprised when we found out we were having a girl! And yes, after having two boys, I loved dressing her up in cute little dresses. (Not FRILLY, but cute.) I looked back through our photo albums and this is the first picture I could find of her with a bow in her hair. She started wearing them very early!
She is two months old in this picture. (I know. The bow is as big as her head, but that is the smallest one I could find that was "really" a bow!) But cut me some slack; do you see the hair on this kid?
(Forget the bow, look at those adorable chubby legs!)
(Hello, can we say "choking hazard?)
But see the alternative?
And now she is trying to give up the bows. I'm trying to be okay with it. Trying.
