Cohen's vintage outfit (3 months)

These are some of my FAVORITE pictures of Cohen. The shirt and hat were my little brothers and I'm SUCH a sucker for nautical themes. This is mostly because my Grandpa and Dad both loved to sail...but also because my Grandpa and Grandma (whom I loved dearly) had an obsession with all things nautical. So I have a lot of memories of nautical type outfits and decor. Anyway, Cohen seemed to handle this outfit quite a bit better then the previous one...

Catching up

I decided I'm going to do a post a day of Cohen in vintage until I run out of those photos and have to take more. Some of these photos may date back a ways but I just want to have them documented.
Here is the earliest photo I can find of Cohen in vintage. This was taken when he was about 2 months old I believe and I was trying to figure out what he would wear to his baptism.

As you can see, he loved it. This actually is the outfit his father wore for his baptism as a baby but based on Cohen's reaction we decided it wasn't worth it to us to have him wear the same thing. Anyway, that is the story of the first time I ever put anything vintage on my child. Stay tuned for the following (and equally fascinating) posts to come!

Hello world, this is my very first post! Here are a few pictures from this past Easter weekend. Cohen wore a little vintage blazer, hand me down pants, & a shirt I got a long time ago on sale. The Easter basket was handmade by my Grandma for my little brother, so it is very special that Cohen was able to use it.
There was some controversy surrounding the shirt I picked for Cohen. My husband said it looked like a womens shirt and my mom said it looked feminine. Then after church, I was told by our Pastor that he looked like Austin Powers. His exact words were "You do realize your son looks just like Austin Powers right?" Me: "Haha...well, no......I didn't....but now that you mention it...."

Hope you all had a great week! I'm looking forward to my parents coming down this weekend...and I hope that there are some nice days so we can play outside!
