Vintage Boy

 My grandson modeling for me in a baby romper with vintage stroller.
He was about 1 year old here.
Sweet stars embroidered on the bodice of this little romper.
Sitting on a vintage ice cream chair.
My little "D" at almost 20 months.

I haven't collected as many boys outfits, but there is one more for my grandson to grow into.
 It is a Little Lord Fauntleroy outfit, which he should fit sometime in the winter.
 He seems to like modeling for me and loves running to see the picture after it is snapped.
It makes me smile to see him do this, as I have seen so many other little ones that just
know to look at the picture when it is snapped.
This isn't something the older generations would have been able to do and I do smile.
As he played with his grandpa's vintage tractors, I played too.

Little ones do delight my soul.

What an amazing photo shoot Marilyn!
You are so good with your camera and your sweet grandson was the perfect subject!
I found it very tricky photographing my 18 month old granddaughter last year - she moved like quicksilver!

Your collection of children's vintage clothing is beautiful, including the girls dresses and hats - I'll look forward to see the Little Lord Fauntleroy outfit!

Your grandson is precious, Marilyn! Loved seeing his photos in vintage outfits, with the vintage stroller and toy tractor. Savor every moment as they grow up so quickly.

I'm thrilled to see these wonderful pics of Desmond……….gorgeous vintage clothes and props……….he's a natural! Of course he's a perfect age now too.

Off shortly, awaiting airport taxi as nobody offered to drive us of course!

Have a wonderful trip when your time arrives dear friend - will be thinking of you all.
Love, Mary

He is so adorable! And it's wonderful that he enjoys being your model and posing for pictures. I see so much of his mommy in him. Thank you for sharing with us.

You have captured some very precious moments! They grow up too quickly - but continue to delight the soul at any age! So happy you have this engaging little guy in your life!

So sweet and charming.
Handsome little love.
Enjoy every golden moment.

Marilyn, all of these are wonderful but it's clear that as he's gotten older, he has become even more photogenic and at ease with the camera -- that smile says it all. So adorable -- and wonderful that he'll let you fuss with him -- and all those buttons!

He is so cute! I know he brings much joy to your family. Grandchildren are the best!

I'll be a grandma for the first time, in September, Marilyn. Kris is having a little boy. I adore these old fashion rompers.

Wasn't he worth waiting for? He's a delightfully handsome little guy.
