The Story behind THE Dress

Some of you may know/remember this...

My grandma had a dream that I had a baby girl. This was way before I had gotten married. I think we were engaged and planning our wedding. Valerie wasn't even a thought yet! My grandma dreamed I had a baby girl dressed in the prettiest pink lacy dress. For days she went on and on about the dream and described the dress. Well, she died not long after our wedding.

At my baby shower for Valerie, my mom gave me a special box she kept separate from all the other gifts. In it was THE pink dress, which she had sewn as close as she could have as per my grandma's descriptions. A dress more or less, FROM my grandma.

Valerie in THE dress - who was about 6 - close to 7 - months old!

Veronica... and the dress just about fits at 4-1/2 months... (I haven't a clue what happened to the bonnet!)

And of course I can't leave Valerie out! 2-1/2 years old...
