I think this will be the last Sunday in a while where Mallory will be able to where summery dresses. Her 12-month summer church dresses, which she can still fit into, have a babyish look to them, but there is one that she wears (which is actually 18-month) that makes her look more like a little girl than a baby. I put her in this dress (one of my favorites, by the way) this morning, tied her hair back in a bow, and put on her "big girl" shoes...you know, those shoes that sort of make a little clogging sounds each time a step is taken. This was her first time in the big girl shoes and she was a bit enamored by the sounds the shoes made. I honestly have to say I was a little choked up when I put the shoes on her because they made her LOOK like a big girl; no more flat-soled, leather-bottomed shoes for her!!! Though we only had about 5 minutes to get out of the door to make it to church on time, I had to snap a few pictures of my girl.
