The Little Daily 11.8

This was taken almost two months ago. Two months! Harlow is double that age now. Always flying, the time.

This photo is especially meaningful to me as Harlow is wearing a dress handed down to me by a dear friend. I mentioned previously how I love the shared history of baby clothes that get passed between friends.

I am not sure if this little dress was worn by both my friend's daughters. It's cute to think Harlow may have been the third little body to warm it's fabric.

Alas, she grew out of this so very quickly. But thankfully, this friend gifted me a whole box of treasures so that we might create new memories in her daughters' preloved clothes.

As for this little dress, I look forward to sending it off on another adventure when the next baby girl comes into my life.


Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Oh bless….

    Nothing warms my heart more than this.

    My gorgeous, gorgeous friend has dressed her beloved bebe in an outfit worn by my own precious daughter.

    I’ve literally cried when i’ve given baby clothing away – not because i don’t want to (in fact it’s the complete opposite), but because it marks an end to a chapter of my life. So many memories and emotions.

    So this makes me all warm and bubbly.

    Thanks honey xxxxx

    I find it SO hard to part with clothes that my children have worn. I’m so impressed that you can part with those tangible memories and share that with other beautiful babies.
    BTW, Harlow is absolutely gorgeous!

    Thank you, sweet friend!

    I know, parting is such sweet sorrow which is why I am so grateful to you for the gorgeous stuff you’ve passed on. I know my little Harlow will do it justice.

    This dress is so precious – kills me that she wore it so briefly.

    Thank you, Terri! We think she is a sweetface, for sure.

    And look, parting with stuff is sooo hard but made easier when it goes to the beloved children of family and friends.

    I reckon you’re onto something here… passing on the teeny tiny clothes worn by Harlow to another precious bubba in your life will make reminiscing about her early days all the more easy. X
