Days 92-96 (7 - 11 March)

7 March: The garter stitch cardy again.  He's pretty happy about it too.
8 March: Nature Baby Kimono onesie with the little softy brown booties.  I can't believe it but he's growing out of them too.  Slow down kiddo!!
9-10 March: As well as the wee booties, the new kid wore lots of homemade nappies.  Here he is wearing his Canterbury supporting colours - red&black - with a overnap I made to cover his cloth nappies.
11 March: More Canterbury colours ... this is a red bib I bought about 8 of and paid around $12 on Trade Me.  Looove that website sometimes!

Days (85-91) 28 February - 6 March

28 February - 1 March: The lovely green kimono cardigan teamed with some lovely Pure Patch singlets and some brown hand-me-down cowboy corduroys.
2 March: Nature Baby all-in-one with some little white booties which I fished out of the bottom of the drawer.  These haven't had much wear as I almost exclusively dressed the wee guy in cotton and wool fabrics, but they do look cute with the 'Toby suit' (named after little Toby in Labrynth).
I know it has nothing to do with handmade, but I think I found where they got the inspiration for Shrek.
3 March: The new kid is a super dribbler so he's been wearing rather a few bibs from my collection and others.  Here's a goshorty bib with little planes on it.  Also check out the green swaddling cloth .. so big and so useful!
4 March: check out the darrrrling little beanie I bought from Supurlative (same as the green booties).  It is the most adorable chunky soft blue-white wool, and she put on a white and blue felt star on the front.  This was a real find on Trade Me.  A clever lady (and also a very friendly one!) who I will definitely look out for at the next Craft 2.0 at The Dowse.
5 March: Ok so I couldn't get a photo of the new kid wearing his smaller version, but here's the wee guy wearing his new cuffed pants.  I dressed them up the same three days later as well, when we went to have the new kid's immunisations done but never got a happy snappy of it.  D'oh!  The nurse made a big fuss over them, I was rather proud.
6 March: Having a bit more tummy time, with a goshorty dribble bibble to catch the dribbles, and the garter stitch cardy Mum made which he's neaarrrllly grown out of.  I'll be so sad when he does!
