Our first priority was to pick a dress for her upcoming First Communion that would double as a flower girl dress in May. SUCCESS! For the wedding she was told to get a dress from the expensive Strassburg Children's store- so I'm very glad we can use it in April for her First Communion and get 2 uses out of it! Feels better considering the money those dresses cost! We were told to get cotton so she had three choices. I let her choose knowing that if she wasn't happy with it there may be last minute tears or worse at either of these events (if you have a little girl who is at all particular you'll know what I mean!).
Anyway, this is the dress she chose. It is very plain and simple, and not my first choice, but it also doesn't flair out at the waist which is why she loved it. The other two did and were a NO from the beginning (although, I must give her credit- she was concerned with what I thought and is always so considerate that I could've talked her into my first choice if I really wanted to!).
In her mind, the best news of all is that she finally got her ears pierced! She's been asking for a long time and had a deal with her dad that she'd get them done when she could quit biting her fingernails. It probably took a year, but she has QUIT! I must say, I wish someone would've convinced me to quit that young (I was probably 25 before I stopped!).
So to bore you a little longer, here are a few pictures of her in her new dress!
