Our Blue Family

In his post of June 22, 2008, Daddy D wrote about his family heirloom little blue Budgee Boy suit. The suit was initially worn by Daddy D himself. Then, both of our sons were photographed in the suit as babies, and more recently our oldest granddaughter wore the suit for a picture-taking afternoon. A few weeks ago, Luke put her grandpa's suit on our youngest granddaughter.


When composing this blue-suit post, I remembered an unusual expression that Luke would utter as a child. At about age three, Luke would say from time to time, "Remember when I was a blue child?" Now, I am not sure exactly what Luke meant. Since he was never actually blue, maybe Luke was referring to wearing his daddy's little blue suit. I will never know.

I remember that post so well. For some reason this picture is not loading for me. I'll have to check it later.

Aww she looks so sweet! How lovely to pass something down through the generations! Over here we have just kept the baby blankets.

Unfortunately, the blue suit will have to be repaired before Nathan wears it. Kara tried to wiggle out of it when being changed and tore off a button.

So that is where that blue child saying came from. There is time before her brother will get his turn in the blue suit...the tradition continues
