The Little Green Dress

Posted by Amy O. , Saturday, May 19, 2012 11:30 AM

I was the only one of four siblings that was born outside of Oregon, in Lansing, Michigan, while my dad was pursuing his doctorate.  My mom tells the story of how she was a bit sad at the lack of family nearby when I was born, thus I got decidedly less attention - visitors and gifts - than my Oregon-born older siblings, so she went out and bought me a new dress of my own to rectify the situation.

I had often seen the pictures growing up, of me in this little green gingham dress, but what I didn't know was that Mom had saved the dress all these years!  She surprised me with it at my shower in January so that Vianne could wear it, too.  But I find it's a little too precious for every day use, especially since V's a bit of a spitter-upper these days, but I did put it on her for some photos this week!
