Shelby's School Pictures 2014

If you follow me on Instagram you've already seen these.
I can't help but sharing again.
They literally make my heart bust out of my chest with love, joy, pride and everything else under the sun.
Thanks to my good friend Helen for the precious Lilly Pulitzer shift she gifted Shelby for her first birthday.
It couldn't have been more perfect for her school picture.
And, to think she kept her bow on the entire time!!
 Her teacher said she was the last in the class to take her pictures and after watching all the other kids she knocked it out of the park.
I would have to say so!
Not going to lie, when I saw the below picture there was a small morsel of me that wanted to enter her in a beauty pageant.
But, then when I think about trying to coach a toddler to perform on stage, I know for sure it will never happen!!
As many of you know, I was a pageant girl but I didn't enter my first one until age 12.
It was after literally begging my parents that I walked across my first stage.
If Shelby chooses to do the same, then so be it, but I'll never push.

The outfit is perfection. And obvs great minds think alike b/c I thought the EXACT same thing about Shelby after you posted that pic on Instagram.
p.s. When I judge (which I HATE to judge babies and young children) I give toddlers extra points for personality if they show out on stage. If they act like the stage is made of lava, even better.

OH MY GOSH. She is adorable!!! I didn't realize how much hair she had with it being so blonde. Where does she get that?

Well, you have to post those pics more than once! They're just too cute. She is a smaller version of mama in all her Lilly. :)

Precious, precious, precious!! I can't believe how old she looks. She's really growing. Just as sweet as can be!
