Morgan Kate and I had our own little photo shoot this afternoon. Saturday we will be attending a wedding for my cousin in Charleston and I wanted to finalize MK's dress. While deciding and photographing dresses for the wedding I also had her try on a few extra. Okay, maybe more than a few. But she was such a great sport. 

This first dress (the yellow one) is actually the dress I wore home from the hospital when I was born. I was seven pounds and some change, MK is fourteen pounds and some change. Either my "homecoming" dress was really big or MK is a small fourteen pounds. I am hoping my dress was really big. My mom hated pink and did NOT want me wearing pink, so yellow it was. Width wise it fit MK really well. Length wise it was more of a "mini-dress". Either way it was absolutely adorable.


The next two dresses are potential dresses to wear to the wedding. The first one is a dress that my grandmother, Mammie, made for me. Yes, my mom is awesome and saved all of my dresses and they are in such good condition. The second is a pink dress that my grandmother actually made for Morgan Kate. She has only worn it once and that was back in March. I simply can't decide. They were both made by my grandmother, MK's great-grandmother, and they are both beautiful. Decision, decisions. So, which do you think? I am going to post a poll in the sidebar to the right. Please cast your vote and help me decide. The "winning" dress will be announced Thursday.

Love you and I absolutely love the yellow dress!

My vote is for the white one! She'll never be able to wear white to a wedding when she grows up (I KNOW her mama will teach her that!) so I say do it now! Hope you all are well!

I love that you have her in all of your old dresses. My mom actually saved all of mine and my sisters dresses and brought them to me for baby Abby. It is amazing that they can still be in fashion after 30 years, ha! I actually have the one I came home from in the hospital too, that is so neat! What a wonderful thing to share with your baby girl. I hope the family is doing well and hope to see you and MK soon, take care.
