Does her love for the phone not bode well for us for her teenage years?
I just adore this girl. F and I have been talking about the fact that Otis was about the age that Bee is now when I got pregnant. This fact just blows my mind because I feel so full of love for Bee (and Otis, of course) and so consumed by her adorableness (as I was for Otis), I can’t imagine how I felt the room in my heart for someone else. I distinctly remember feeling how life with Otis finally felt so smooth, were we screwing things up by changing them? And yet, our hearts just expanded. I guess I just can’t imagine that right now. And to clarify, we are NOT pregnant, we are just strolling down memory lane!
Anyways! I recently saw some really adorable dresses from lemonbean at a local children’s store. Local designers, fun vintage-inspired prints, easy to wear – right up my alley. But, you know, being a sewist, I wanted to try my own version. I made a basic tank dress, added a contrasting lining and a little placket of the same fabric in front. The contrasting fabric is made of these funny little puppies dancing around. I’ll admit to you that lately, pink hasn’t seemed so hateful to me but something in me feels like I gotta stick to my guns. So if I see a cute anything for Bee (dress, fabric, shoe) and I like the pink and I like the blue, guess which one I tell myself to buy? Anyways, go check out lemonbean and support some independent designers. A couple of different friends have bought clothes from them, and they’re really adorable.
This will be the last Fashion Show Sunday until August, since we’re leaving next weekend for Taiwan. If you need a little kid fashion infusion, check out these couple of blogs whose fashions I’ve been loving lately: Teri, of GiddyGiddy and Pippi Parade. But don’t worry, you’ll still be hearing from us while we’re away!
