What she's wearing

I'm taking a departure from the serious nature of the posts lately to go with a guilty pleasure...Sophie Kate's clothes of course.  Being the only girl after 3 boys comes with its privileges, I guess.  

What she wore to church this week...

See, the reason SK gets to be so well dressed is because SK's friends are well dressed.  We beg, borrow and sometimes pay for the cutest outfits seen around town a few years ago, ha ha.

Another reason SK is so stylin' is because SK's friends and family are extremely talented...

Chad's sister smocked this for SK...

My sister made these for SK....

I love consignment sales and I love swapping clothes with other mamas, it makes me happy so see someone else wearing the clothes SK and the boys once wore.  I immediately recall...oh the boys wore that for Easter one year, or Sophie Kate had her picture made in that when she turned one.  It's special to me to see some of her clothes being worn by other little girls we know.

Sophie Kate also has 2 grandmothers that keep her in good supply with new dresses, play clothes, etc.      

She's a blessed little girl and it has nothing to do with the clothes she wears.  It has everything to do with the people around her who love her to pieces.  This is what I remind myself when I feel alone in my circumstances.  God has placed wonderful people in our lives who adore this girl. People who are not afraid to take on our girl and her family or if they are they don't show it.  This is truly a journey and thankfully we are not in it alone.

Habakkuk 2:3 "But these things I plan won't happen right away.  Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.  If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass.  Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day."

Thanks for checking in on us.

Sophie Kate is so beautiful and I definitely love her fabulous wardrobe!

You are an inspirational mom to me and I truly know how those emotionally draining moments are....sometimes it all seems too much, but then God seems to send grace in a form of exactly what I need to get through the moment, hour, day, week, etc.

I wish my Bennett could meet your sweet Sophie Kate~ maybe one day! We have family in Memphis, Nashville and Birmingham, so we LOVE the south even though we live in the DC area now :).

Blessings upon your sweet, sweet family.

Well, if y'all ever come to visit Birmingham, you have to let me know so we can hook up. I hate that we all live so far apart, we have never had the privilege of meeting any of SK's cyber friends in person and I would love to!!!
