As summer approached I was excited for Caroline to wear her little swimsuit. I had bought it the previous fall (on clearance in October for $3 I think it was $25 originally? I love a good sale). Little girls and ruffles. Oh be still my beating heart. Put a bow into the mix and I'm a pile of mush. Of course the irony of the whole matter was she wore it maybe maybe 5 times the entire summer. Tiny girlfriend does not like swimming so we ended up canceling our pool membership. But I'm not complaining because chasing a toddler down to coat them in sunscreen is not exactly my idea of fun either so I think all around we weren't too sad to miss out on pool time. But I did manage to take a few simple photos of her the first time I put it on her.
And now I'm really glad I spent $3 on her swimsuit and not $25 seeing she wore it for maybe 6 hours total this summer. But isn't she a cutie in it? Good thing I took the photos before I chased her down with a bottle of sunscreen. Those would not have been happy photos. And my camera might not have lived to see another day.
FYI I post these adorable pictures of my little girl full well knowing that it's only good and right and honest for me to disclose she looks like this about 10% of the time. She's usually running around the house in a diaper, her chest and arms covered in stickers she artistically placed (and I might add probably trying to get out of her diaper because everyone knows toddlers are the original streakers). And I'm in workout wear (thoughI haven't been to the gym and won't go before the day is done), no make-up and compression leg sleeves because I'm super preggo. Attractive. I know. But I just want to keep it real.
