Pictures for the (Long) Weekend: By popular demand/threat

Filed under: Family, Personal, Pictures for the Weekend — llcall @ 4:04 am

Addison’s grandmother on the Call side, Lorie, sent some cute clothes to her for Christmas and her birthday. In particular, she requested pictures in the dresses, which has taken a while because 1) it’s winter and how do you keep little legs warm in dresses? and 2) Addison HATES dresses and literally tries to rip them off her body throughout church — apparently, they cramp her style (like mother, like daughter?).  But we’re making progress . . . here’s dress #1:

Last Sunday she wore a cute sweater that first belonged to her aunt Robin-Elise.  I love it!  (Although I don’t love the quality of these pictures — cell phone.)

How freaky does her leg look in this pic?!

We’ll try to take less than two months to deliver the next batch.



  1. Very cute! I miss dresses 😉 They were so easy to throw on in the summer time and keep the little ones cool. Boys have those rompers, which are stinkin’ sute too, but no dress. It looks like she has a tail in that last picture. How do they bend like that?

  2. I use baby legs, tights, leg warmies to keep her legs warm:)

  3. Thanks for this post! I need photos to see if I’ve gauged size correctly. It’s a great color for her! Looks like she will easily be able to wear it for a while.
    Cold times require fuzzy warm winter tights. They sell them most places (Target, PX, etc), and if you tell me a size, I’ll do my best to send some. It may be easier for you to sleuth the right size in your area. I used to buy navy blue for R-E so she could crawl in them w/o a problem.

    Perhaps with Neal dressing her in soft PJ’s, Baby Sage hasn’t become accustomed to rougher textures. Do you think a softer fabric would be more acceptable to her? The other vintage dresses may tell us, or her new birthday dress. Send me photos of her in them, so I can see the fit and her mood in them! No fair pinching. Teaching her to dress in clothes, not night things, during the day may help you all down the road. Just a thought!

    Send photos soon so I can judge what to send!!!! How big is she now? Ht, wt… Notice one of the vintage dresses sent you is the same one that R-E wears in the vintage photo as a baby w/ her folks (I’m in the gray blouse, and she’s on my lap).

  4. The birthday dress is a soft one! How does she like it? Tell me what day the Valentine’s package reached you; postal clerks claimed with the bad weather it would take weeks. Maybe not?

  5. I do love the red jumper on little Addison Sage, but I’m perfectly fine about receiving photos of the other items sent, too. I want to know if her vintage and birthday dresses fit ( photos appreciated), but I’d love to see additional photos of her in R-E’s rompers, etc.

    One down–the red jumper– (plus the white sweater), but with many more to go! Cannot get enough photos of this little one! Thanks in advance!!!!

  6. I was going to say, I think I know a mom who doesn’t like dresses–then I read your comment. Hmmmm…. 🙂 Cute pics.

  7. I’m partial to the photos in her darling red jumper (guess who selected it with love?) together with her smile and poses. Seems a good match from the photos! (naturally picture documentation is in demand! As are her height and weight updates!)

    Neal & Lindsay, when Addison Sage is dressed in this ravishing red jumper she cannot help but be your very own Baby Beauty. Neal, at age four & beyond, used to say we needed one. She’s here, besides walking now, too. She’s worked hard to earn her first birthday; she deserves moving on. Happy Valentine’s month!
