Inspired by Max California's gray knit version, I just whipped up the "Infant Peasant Dress" in a teal knit for baby Maggie, and paired it with some owl bloomers that I sewed for Joe when he was an infant (but never blogged). The bloomers were made from a pattern in Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing For Baby. Both of these patterns are easy and fast, and both fit my teeny newborn with some room to grow. Yay!
So then I tried to photograph Maggie in her mama-made outfit. First, let's try some tummy time!
I managed one shot before Maggie took an intense dislike to being on her tummy. So then I comforted her a bit, and tried her on her back ...
Uh .... you'd think I casually put her down on a stray leaf in the middle of the jungle where she is being sniffed by cougars, right?
Of course, I immediately put the camera down and picked her up to comfort her. (Well, okay, not before I got one good shot of her screaming. She is just so cute when she's mad!)
Whereupon she snuggled into my arm and promptly fell asleep.
That's my girl: Goes from 80 to zero in ten seconds flat.
