Look Who's Four!

Miss Avery turned four yesterday!
I dressed her in a little vintage Polly Flinders dress, and took some birthday photos of her.
She reminds me a lot of myself as a girl in these photos.
While I definitely was a bit more "cheek"-y, I still see the resemblance!
I love the above photo- I wish it were a little sharper, but still so pretty!
 When all the serious photos were done, it was time to go on the swings!
And since I'm showing comparison photos, here are a couple.  The one on the left is from her second birthday, and the one on the right from her fourth.  My goodness, is that even the same girl?  Such a baby then, and such a real GIRL now!
 She opened a few photos while still dressed nice and pretty.
 Then she changed into more comfortable clothes (I made that "4" shirt for Noah when he turned four!) and opened some more.

 One of her gifts was this cat I made from a vintage pattern.
He's made from a beautiful teal velvet, with a vintage sheet used for the underside.
He's a little difficult to take photos of, because of his position, but he is definitely nice to hug!
 She also got this adorable kitty made by Diane Mars of Saturday Finds.  I've always admired these cute little figures she makes, and knew Avery would love a kitty cat.  Diane was sweet enough to rush my order to me (I forgot to order until last week!), and as you can see, Avery loves her kitty!

We've all had a fun couple of days celebrating with our little sweetie.  She's such a fun girl, and we're so glad to have her in our lives!  Happy Birthday, Avery!

Wishing your little princess a blessed 4th birthday! What adorable pictures. My grandparents sold Polly Flinders at their clothing store. My sister and I had many special dresses with smocking. I can definitely see a resemblance of yourself in your daughter.

What a little doll Avery is! Just too sweet!! I love how you dress her in vintage dresses. You can definitely see that she resembles her mama. The kitty you made her is so adorable and so is the kitty made by Diane! My little Dylan turned 4 just a few months ago. Time goes so quickly!
