Ode to Polyester or Blessing Days

Doesn't he look dapper? Particularly with no pants. Ben was blessed in this same onesie, a precursor to the tuxedo t-shirt.

Lila in my blessing dress. Lacy, but not too ruffly. I wasn't keen on frills, even then.

Alice in same dress. It almost didn't happen because we couldn't find it. I was almost devastated.

Hurray for clothes that will never ever die... ever.

I love all three, for different reasons.
1. Jack: because even as a baby, he looks vaguely embarrassed about his outfit.
2. Lila: because that's your Brooklyn apartment, and I was there when that photo was taken, and I remember just sitting around (with James in Jack's arm chair), hanging out.
3. Alice: because she looks wary; like at any moment you're going to tell her to go get a job and her own apartment. Like she waiting for the other shoe to drop.

So no one tells you how long to wait before you bless the baby. Two months is good. I will use that.
