WW – Still Stylin’ After All These Years

The kitchen that Santa brought last Christmas (2008) is now in Baby K’s room and Little G, Baby K and I were all in her room playing this morning. She was in the crib laughing at her sunflower and he was “baking” me something.

I suddenly remembered that I had a knitted sweater and matching booties that my Mom gave me after The B Man was born. A friend of hers made them for ME when I was a baby and I figured I’d never have the chance to use them since they looked well, kinda “girly.”

Righ then and there I decided it was time for Baby K to play “dress up” and here she is sportin’ Momma’s baby clothes!! Turns out both the sweater and the booties fit her perfectly right now. And the booties STAY ON because they have these awesome little ties that go around the ankles and keep them from slipping off. Hand made stuff is just the bestest!

And the detail in these items is so wonderful. I really do love vintage clothing, especially baby stuff. Okay, I just described my own baby clothes as “vintage”. Ship. (which in our house also means another S.H.I. word…) Excuse my French.

Anyway, feast your eyes on the cuteness!

P.S. Just LOOK at that awesome close up picture of the baby bootie! GAH I LOVE MY NEW CAMERA!!!

Join the Wordful Wednesday fun at Seven Clown Circus!

  7. Oh she is so adorable!

  8. How special that beautiful baby K is wearing her mummy’s sweater and booties. That is so adorable. Is there a photo of you sporting this outfit?

    Elaine, I have been giggling as I read your previous post as I thought your line about celebrating the birth of baby Jesus by looking like you were the one going to give birth to baby Jesus and the other line you mentioned about getting a grip…on the treadmill, was amusing.

    Good on you for taking action and doing something about changing the way you feel and look.

  9. That is just adorable!

  10. TOO CUTE!!!! And yes, awesome camera!!!

  11. I wanna snuggle your darling little girl!

  12. I was in love with the bootie picture from the moment I saw it! Great work!

    And the cuteness! ACK! She’s so nice and chubby (and I mean that as a compliment because to me, there is nothing cuter than a nice chubby baby!).

  13. Look at those booties and little sweater total and utter cuteness.

    (Please stop making my uterus hurt….it’s not fair!)

  14. So adorable.

  15. That last shot of her is so funny. I love her expression.

  16. Oh my stars. That’s some good feasting I just did. Seriously. Adorable!

  17. those are really the best booties! such a cute outfit and how very very special! handmade is the best… now you have to wash it carefully and vacuum seal it so it will be safe for her daughter one day!

  22. Baby booties are always SO adorable! Everything is, but I am partial to the booties.

  23. Awww how neat to put something that was yours on your baby. :) She’s adorable in them. And I agree, handmade is the bestest!

  24. Cutie Patootie!

    Say, do you have any pictures of you with the “vintage” clothes on? You should totes try and do a remake of a photo where you’re wearing the get-up. That would be too precious.

  25. ACK!!! SO cute!! I just love it! How absolutely adorable! :)

  26. That is precious! It falls under the category of things that almost make me want another one. ALMOST!

  27. Boy, it didn’t take her long to start sharing your closet. ;o) Golly that’s adorable. Nadia has a few of my old clothes, and it’s soooo cute to see her in them. That stuff really is well made, isn’t it?

    You’re rocking the camera my friend!
