Same Dress......35 years later

I got tickled that Kelly let Harper wear to church this past Sunday one of her dresses that I have saved for the past thirty+ years! It was so cute then and I thought it looked cute on Harper!


Thought you might like to see Kelly in that very dress. She was about 5-6 mos old in these pictures. She had a little more hair than Harper has now but I do see a strong resemblance, don't you? But Harper looks alot like her Daddy too! And that's a good thing!

Wonder if Kelly will save some of Harper's dresses for Harper's future daughter?

Woo Hoo! Will you look at that babe! Not Kelly, but grandma Nonny!

Becky said...

Awe! That is too cute...it's nice that you saved all those dresses for Harper now!

Betsy said...

I think it is so sweet to pass down special little outfits! I have saved a few that I will pass down someday.

I think Harper looks like both her mommy and daddy! Kelly definitely had a lot more hair (and darker, too!)

PS-I love your husband's comment! haha

Nancy said...

too cute!!

Kelly said...

I don't think Harper looks anything like me...........she is her daddy all the way!
I was wondering if you had pictures of me in this outfit? I need to get a copy and frame both of us in it.

Laurie said...

That is the cutest!

Melissa Stover said...

what a cutie! i think kelly will save many of harper's dresses.tess has worn one of my old dresses too. i think it's so neat.

Jacquie said...

I LOVE those old pictures. And how sweet that you saved some of Kelly's outfits. I hadn't even thought to do that. I did keep one outfit for each of the boys that were special to me.

Kelley said...

I think it is so neat that you kept her dresses. I read Kelly's post and Harper looked like a little doll in that dress. It looked precious on your Kelly too. What a wonderful keepsake.

Penny said...

IF Kelly saves Harper's clothes, Harper better have a "junior" or at least pick a name that starts with an "h." LOL
I love your hubby's comment! =)

Cindy Lou said...

That is just the neatest thing ever!! So precious and I bet Kelly will save Harpers dresses!!!

I love to read your blog and Kelly's too! Our son, Carter, wore the same outfit home that my husband did when he was born! So special!

Too cute! :o)

Lauren Kelly said...

I can definitely see the resemblance. Harper is a good mix of both :O)

Kathy said...

I think Harper looks very much like Kelly. I never thought Molly looked like me until she got older. I think it's because her hair was lighter like her Dad's. Both are beautiful of course!

You are one organized Nonny to find the pic's of Kelly in the dress. I know I need to tackle Evie's pics before it gets any more out of hand. I LOVE your blog. It's just heart warming to see your perspective on being a mom and grandmother.

Love Being a Nonny said...

I LOVE that you have those pictures of Kelly in the same dress Harper got to wear. And I love Kelly's idea of framing one of each of them in the dress. Harper seems to be a nice mix of her mommy and daddy. Thanks for sharing!!

Bethany said...

how cute are you that you found these pictures!! I love Kelly's idea to frame a picture of her and Harper each in the dress. I've been inspired...I'm definitely going to save more of my girls' dresses for their children!

Lauren said...

It is so neat that you saved Kelly's outfit! How very special for all of you! :)

Michele said...

That is just so cool that you saved that dress. I've done the same thing with some of my favorite outfits from my two kids.

Hugz,

I LOVE sentimental stuff!!! Your "girls" both look adorable in that sweet little dress! I've kept some of my favorites of my kid's things, too.

My mom saved a few of my dresses. She had a couple from when I was in 1st grade. My daughter had her 1st grade picture taken in one of them. Cute, cute! It does a Mama's heart good to share special things like that. God bless!

Vera said...

Oh my goodness, she is SO CUTE! I do see Harper in those pictures too. How special that you saved them - my grandmother saved some my mother's baby clothes (mine all got passed down to cousins) and they are so precious to me. And yes, I am CERTAIN that Kelly is saving EVERYTHING :)

A Dusty Frame said...

Aww! That's so sweet that you saved her dresses!

Gram said...

How adorable! I didn't save too many of my son's outfits, but I have quite a few quilts, books, etc that I have shared.

Lori said...

If she does save some, Harper should name her girl Harper or at least a name that starts with an "H".

So precious! I do see a resemblence and I am cracking up at Bro. Steve's comment. So cute! :)

How beautiful! My mother saved dresses and toys and I am soooo glad she did! =D

Tins and Treasures said...

I, too, have saved some of my girls' dresses...they are now 20 and 24...but I still like to look at them. Very sweet that Harper gets to wear them. Happy July ~Natalie

Susie said...

How totally cute! I love the fact that you posted pics. I too have saved some of my daughter's dresses and even some of my boys 1st church outfits. I hope I can find the pics that go with them someday! I love you and Pastors Steve's Blog. You just seem like someone I met or know!
God Bless!

Heather said...

This is so,SO neat! My Mom saved some of my dresses, too, but she hasn't had time to get them and bring them to me....I will LOVE IT if I get to put Avery Kate in some of my old clothes!!!
You and Kelly remind me of me and my Mom....such a blessing to have such a great relationship!

I don't think she looks like Kelly. I've always thought she looks like Scott.

It would be neat to do a side by side comparison. What a special keepsake!

My mom saved some of my dresses. She also saved a few things of my brother's.
