Pink Saturday...Happy Birthday Caralyn!

For today's Pink Saturday post...I wanted to honor the brightest, sweetest, loveliest spot of pink in my life...my granddaughter, Miss Caralyn Camille (yep, I am very honored that she shares my name, as I shared it w/ my grandmother). She turns 4 today so it's a big day! We're having a family party & then she will spend the night next week & we'll shop for barbie clothes & do our annual birthday tea... I had such a hard time finding her the perfect tea cup this year!

When Caeden (who's 7) heard that we were having another tea party, he exclaimed "hey, I wanna come!". My daughter, Shilah just looked at me & said, "we didn't cut Honey's apron strings off that boy soon enough." LOL

Here is Caralyn shortly after she was born. Get a load of all that hair! She had an Elvis pompadour for several months then it started falling out & looked scraggly. Poor thing... every day was a bad hair day for her until she was about a year old.


By her first birthday it had all fallen out & was growing back in so it didn't look so bad...see! Funny how her hair was more sparse @ a year than it was @ a week, huh?


By her 2nd birthday, she had a gorgeous head of hair!

By her 3rd birthday, her hair had thickened up enough to get her a great bob cut. She looked so cute in it! You can't tell in this pic but it's really short in back.



This was taken a few months ago & look how wonderful her hair is now...straight & thick w/ lots of body. Shilah & I both have frizzyish, curly hair so we really envy this asset of her's! Course now she won't let us bob it as she wants it long "like her friends". Damn that peer pressure! ;o)


Guess what color her birthday dress is for this year? You're right, it's pink! It's gorgeous & I will share a pic of her in it for next week's Pink Saturday. Happy Pink Day everybody....visit Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound for more pink posts.

Happy Birthday to Carylyn! She is such a doll...that hair is so cute! My boys both came into this world with a head full of hair...and I loved it! Of course, it fell out in patches too and grew back in more sparse...LOL!
I hope you all have a fun tea party! I wish I could join in.

Everything looks so pretty on your table scapes...I really would love to do a brunch for two on my back porch...maybe since you've inspired me so much...I just might do so!

I hope you have a great day! Talk to you again soon...
Big Hugs,
Queenie
