Every fall, millions of people emerge costumed in bright colors, some donning headgear and other accoutrements of the impending college football season. Teams in ivy-clad stone stadiums storm the gridiron to the thrills and thralls of captive crowds. Here in the mountains of Pennsylvania, that means one thing, and one thing alone. Tailgating.
This year, there have been several new additions (all female, no less!) to the tailgating family (otherwise known as the Nittany Tailgating Association): Isabelle (born last December to Jess & Craig), Harper (born in February to Amber & John), our daughter Calleigh (born February 27 for those who would like to send gifts), and Megan (born in June to Ken and Courtney).
Here’s a small sampling of lots of baby girls dressed in Penn State athletic regalia. They’re all perfectly adorable. Enjoy!
We’ll start with a few of Calleigh:
With Harper and Belle in the background:
Harper would prefer not to be photographed at the moment, though Belle seems eager behind her:
Heather and Calleigh:
Since she’s my daughter, here’s a few more:
Love this one:
Since she’s still so small it’s hard to find hats that fit:
Here’s Harper with her parents:
And our friends Jen and Matt might have an addition of their own soon!
Harper: The definitive portrait.
And here’s Harper going after the pom-pom:
She also seems to enjoy showing off the guns:
I couldn’t decide which version was cuter, so here’s both:
And back to Calleigh and Heather:
She’s quite obsessed with letting me get every angle:
And then her sartorial side came out…
And one with her mom:
More football photos to come…including Calleigh visiting ESPN’s GameDay!
