Hey it's only been two months!

Finally got around to loading the pictures from Brooke's first day of school. As you may or may not know, I wasn't actually there so Grandma took the honors. And she did a fabulous job - how darling does Brooke look in her cool shades and rockin' apple shirt! The pants were kind of a funny story though. I had forgotten to lay out the very specific first day clothes before I left so I called mom and just told her it was the apple shirt and there were denim capris that went with it. After I was back I was organizing Brooke's closet and realized the capris still had the tags on. We hadn't had the pictures developed yet (Grandma still has a film camera if you can believe it!) so I just assumed it was too warm for the pants and the executive decision was made to go with shorts. Cool. When I did pick up the pictures I was all "oh what pants are those?" - only to realize that Brooke was wearing a pair of Isabel's jeans. Yes, those are supposed to be full length pants on an 18-24 month old. I suppose this is proof that Brooke might just be a little too skinny!

Oh, to be tall and skinny again. I remember when poppie would always call me "Skinny Minnie" and "stringbean." Gone are those days. Brooke will catch up - it's in our genes.

Love the pictures and obviously can relate to the skinny jeans. I have to admit I laughed our loud when I read it! Sounds exactly like something that would happen in our house!
