One month!

Bloggy friends rock.

A couple months ago, fellow blogger Laura posted this awesome First 12 Month Baby Vest Set on her sewing/crafting/baking blog, Craftstorming. I loved this idea, but not having a digital cutter (or even a decent computer printer!) it probably wasn't going to happen at my house. So you can imagine how pleased I was when the super generous Laura made me my own set of iron-on transfers and sent it all the way from England (in the middle of the Olympics, no less)! She also sent detailed instructions on how to successfully iron on the transfers, which made the process easy, fast, and foolproof (especially important given that I am stuck under a baby most of the time and can only work in very short bursts during Maggie naps).

And so I present the first installment in a twelve month photo set* ... 

One month!


One month!


Month 1 is paired with yellow polkadot Knit Newborn Pants. Maggie has finally grown into her handmade newborn pants! (Well, I still have to fold up the bottoms a little bit.) And yes, that's Christine's quilt again. What can I say? It's my favorite backdrop for baby photos!

Yay! Thank you Laura!

* I know. I can't believe she's one month old already!

  1. Oh, she is just adorable! I just want to eat all of her baby goodness up (but not in a creepy way)!

  2. Those transfers are so cute! What a neat idea! And Miss Maggie is looking extra plump, good job Mama! Also, I'm honored my quilt is the backdrop for your little one :)

    1. For real. I look at photos of Joe at this age, and they are two peas in a pod. But I do think just maybe she favors my side of the family a bit more? Yeah, probably not. Sigh.

  4. Too cute. I keep thinking about the stickers like this but havn't gotten around to ordering any yet. Baby arrives next week! Guess I should get a move on...

  5. Darling! I love the pants, too. Our baby is almost 10 months already. The time really does fly by. At the same time, I feel like I am finally finding my way out of the baby fog. At least I hope I am! :)

    1. I remember feeling that way when Joe hit about a year. One great thing about baby # 2 is that I know that will come. Which helps me enjoy the baby fog a bit more.

    1. I share your love for polka dots (although I think I might love stripes even more). :-)

  7. She's so cute, look at those chubby cheeks. I love the co-ordinating pants. I'm really pleased you're going to be able to use these stickers, I do wish I'd see it early enough to do it with my two.

  8. What a great idea! I tried to take monthly pics for my first child but sadly they fell by the wayside after several months :-( Needless to say my younger 2 had NO monthly pics at all. Oh dear. Your Maggie looks gorgeous in it, by the way.
