Pictures for the Weekend: Candy striper?

Filed under: Family, Pictures for the Weekend — llcall @ 11:50 pm

I can’t quite decide what this hand-me-down from Aunt Robin (courtesy of Neal’s mom, Lorie, packing it away all these years) reminds me of . . . there’s a sort of quaint, old-fashioned feel to it.  My first thought was candy striper, although the stripes are not nearly as obvious in these pictures.  Regardless, she looks adorable in it!

This is a face we’re seeing a lot these days.  It’s a multi-purpose face, appropriate for 1) giving adorable kisses, 2) blowing her nose (in conjunction with a tissue — we’re not animals around here), and 3) getting very excited, accompanied by panting.

She’s getting cuter. every. day.  How is that even possible?



  1. I think it’s her eyes. I swear I see this deep little soul when I look at them!

  2. Astute observation, kei02003! This makes the Call Family smile as her papa Neal has similar eyes; he did feel initially slighted that she adorably favors the Larson crew, at least from the nose on down to her toes-es. [ “Moses supposes…”] But this lass is such a baby doll, that Neal forgives & is secure knowing we all agree she is marvel of sweet beauty, including those eyes, deep pools we drown in when she looks us head on.

    3/27/11: perhaps Sunday she’ll wear her plaid dress, & you’ll have more photos to post? Oh, frabjous day! Then on to the Valentine package! So glad you are getting a kick out of her clothing, too, or that to humor me, you say that you are. Either scenario works for me, being too far away to do much but yearn for your calls, photos, and posts. And yes, I, too, have a life, but we miss being close to you three, one of which is this special grandchild. Give her a hug from me!

  3. I love that kissy face! She is so adorable. And her eyes are so beautiful. I just have to say- she would be cute in anything you put on her.

  7. She’s a charmer! Definitely Neal’s eyes, your nose, and everything else a perfect blend of both of you.
