Vintage Gracie - 6.5 months

Grace had her six month check up the other day a few weeks late. She weighs 15 pounds 12 ounces and is 26 3/4 inches long. Exactly where Grant was at six months. She is officially crawling and it's funny to watch her. She loves to be in the same room as anyone, so if you leave her in her room....she comes crawling out to find you. She is also starting to pull up in her crib, time to lower it already! She is such a sweet, sweet baby.

Now, time for dress up:
This green dress was made by my Mimi for my mom's doll, Susan. I've always liked the smocking on it.


My old baby shoes...still a bit too big for Gracie, but perfect for the mouth.

This sweater was given to me as a baby, it's beautifully knitted.


I wonder what she is thinking?

This is a little big for her still, but it was mine as a baby in Japan. It is called a Yukata and made out of the fabric used for summer kimonos. My mom said she dressed me in it to sleep.

I have my old baby shoes too (and a couple sweaters) -- the boys use them as baseballs and weapons.

I love that green dress. Seems you guys had fun playing dress up today.

Oh my gosh--she looks just like Susan! I think you should take some shots of Susan in the dress to compare :) I don't think I have any of my old baby clothes...and I wasn't cool like you and born in Japan so I don't have any international babywear either. Once again I am the shafted child. haha j/k.
