They don't stay Bitty

When you're five and (almost) three years old there are few things more exciting than getting an unexpected package in the mail. It's not Christmas, not your birthday - in other words you have no reason to be expecting any mail much less a big United States Post Office shipping box. We had this kind of blessing last week.

Prince Charming's Aunt Jackie sent these adorable dresses all the way from Florida. Pink for Polly and her Bitty Baby (Baby Lisa Pink) and Blue for Tigger and her Bitty Baby (Baby Sammy Lisa). Yes, they named their babies themselves. And yes, you have to say the whole name when referring to the baby. As in, "Someone better pick up Baby Lisa Pink before I run the vacuum" or "No, Baby Sammy Lisa cannot play outside!" If Prince Charming or I just say "Lisa" or "Sammy" my intelligent daughters will have no idea who we're talking about, even if we are actually holding the aforesaid baby.

Aunt Jackie also sent this sweet dress for Sweet Pea, although she didn't make it. (Polly told Sweet Pea not to worry about it - Aunt Jackie would probably sew her something when she's bigger...)

So Sunday morning the girls dressed in their new finery. And Baby Lisa Pink and Baby Sammy Lisa got to go to church too, because of course, everyone needed to see the matching dresses. Thanks to Aunt Jackie and Grandma my girls and their babies have a better wardrobe than I do. (Just kidding! Sort of.)

But I felt a twinge of sadness as I looked at these pictures. Polly received her special baby when Tigger was born, almost three years ago. And Tigger received her special baby just before Sweet Pea was born and Sweet Pea is already 4 months old. Where did the time go? Just yesterday each of these precious girls was my bitty baby.
