You Capture-Summer

My mom is in town this week. She's been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to put Coral in the bathing suit she bought her for Easter. We dig it out. It's a 6 month suit. Oh, it might fit, we say. No. No, it doesn't. We couldn't get it past her chubby waist. We decide to pick one up on the way to the pool. We buy a 12 month suit this time. That should fit, right? No. No, it doesn't. Still too small. Coral ends up wearing a onesie for her first time in the pool. Also, while at the pool, a woman was complimenting Coral while I was holding her. She then looks me in the eye and says, "Who is her mother?" I told her I was and she tells me that she thought I was her sister. Then, she stares at Coral for a second and replies with, "I guess I can see the resemblance there." Thanks, lady. I guess that's what happens when you live in an area where most mothers with young children are in their 40's.


Don't forget to see more summer photos at I Should Be Folding Laundry!


  1. Awe what a cutie! I used to get those annoying comments when I had my first. Sometimes you just want to say DO you think before you talk. LOL

  2. LOL! Oh, what a doll! That suit isn't even close to fitting is it? Such a cute suit too. I love all of your pics - really cool angles!

  3. What a cutie! I get that're old enough to have kids?! (It's never really a compliment.)

  4. Aww, your baby is such a sweetheart! I love the little swimsuit.

  5. That bathing suit shot is too cute! Don't you hate pulling out the baby clothes only to discover they are way too small already? Adorable.

  6. 1. "Who is her mother?" hahahahah

    2. Coral trying to wear the 6 month suit. hahahahaha

    3. I LOVE the picture of you and your mom and your sunglasses, and I love the way you can see polka dots reflected in the glasses.

    4. I love Coral's red hair! It really is red, isn't it? I AM her real aunt!

  7. Also, Alice went to the pool in nothing but a disposable swim diaper I purchased at the front desk yesterday. Our girls are cute enough to pull off the no-swimsuit look, right?

  8. She is so cute! My daughter is 2 months and she wears a 12-month suit. LOL. Love chunky monkey babies!

  9. That is a funny story about the swimsuits. I think swimsuits run waaay too small. Audrey is 8 months and wears a 12-18 month one and it fits just right.

    That last picture with those blue eyes is adorable. She is a beauty for sure!
