Purple is the Color of Mourning

Not that I'm mourning or anything, but when I saw this week's Photo Hunters theme I decided to dig up as many photos as I could of The Pea wearing purple. She has had tons of purple outfits over the years -- I can see them in my mind, but most of them didn't make it into our photo archive. Here's one of the earliest I found of her in a sweet, light purple onesie.


How can such an ugly monster be so cute?



The Pea still likes wearing this Mickey Mouse shirt, but it won't be long before we have to give it away.


These days, The Pea's taste runs to tank tops, not puff-sleeved blouses or patterned dresses. She looks far too grown-up in these tank tops -- they even have a little shelf bra for the rare occasion that the tween actually has something to put in them. She informed me this was a great thing so that when she started developing, I wouldn't have to spend any money to buy her bras. Sorry kid, you are most definitely wearing bras with these tank tops, and hopefully a sweater to go with it.

It all happened far too quickly!

I guess maybe I am mourning, just a little bit, after all.

Looks like she's just a little behind my dd, who just turned 13 and has already been wearing bras for a couple of years not. She caught me very much by surprise.

She's a beautiful girl and I love how you showed the sequence with her at different ages.

My daughter loved purple so much when she was growing up she talked me into painting her bookshelf, desk chair, windows and door trim in her room PURPLE. I drew the line there as she wanted purple walls too. No way was I going to deal with that, ha.

Your daughter, seen thru time, makes me thinking back over my daughters' childhoods. This is a very happy post! Great theme for you.
