17 day old dress

This dress has been worn by my Dad, both my brothers, myself
and all their children and all my children. That is 10 people.

We have all worn it and had our picture taken in it when we were 17 days old.

It was by chance that my Dad and my oldest brother wore it on the 17th day
and had picture's taken in it.
So, the tradition was born. Its our thing that we do.

The dress was made in France for the R.H. Stearns Co. Boston
(at least that is what the tag says)
My Dad was born in Cambridge, MA and
I can imagine my Grammie shopping there for her soon to be baby, my Dad.
