before she outgrows it... {3 little pigs}

This sweet little dress holds a special place in my heart. My friend {Angel} made it for Grace and surprised me with it on our first trip to {Minnesota}. Grace was just 3 years old. It holds such special meaning for me because it was made in memory of my dear grandpa...{mi Abuelito}.
I tried it on Grace this Summer and I knew this was the last year she would be able to fit in it, so when my friend {DeAnn} called about a photoshoot she needed help with and we were able to make it work, I knew immediately the perfect dress for Grace to wear.
My grandpa used to read the story of the 3 little pigs to me to emphasize hard work and always doing your best. To this day, every time I hear the story, my thoughts go immediately to my grandpa. He went to be with Jesus in 2005 and he just celebrated his 93rd birthday in heaven. I miss him so much!
I wish he would have been able to meet Grace and read the book to her like he did to me. Grace's kindness towards others always reminds me of my grandpa. He was such a gentle soul. The best man I've ever known. One of a kind, for sure.
So glad I have these sweet pictures of the little pumpkin...
...and this special dress and all the memories that go along with it!
And oh my, how time flies! 
Three...and Six and a half...she is getting to be such a big girl!

Loved this Jessica! Great idea to do a photo shoot while it still fits. I'm so glad I made the dress extra long for her to grow into. Had no idea it would last her this long though. Wow!

Jenn, Jessica was visiting me in Eden Prairie. Hi!
