jonah has always felt more like a girl's name to me, anyway

one of the few, but probably most important, purchases i've made for baby girl has been a pack of white long-sleeved onesies. they're a staple. and she'll more than likely be in one everyday.

i made these little tunics last week to throw over the onesies to try and avoid any kind of confusion that jonah is in fact a baby girl.

they were fast, easy and i might have made 6 of them in less than 24 hours...okay, i did.

(i think that fills my sewing quota for the rest of the year.)

i also made this hat:
my homage to mayim bialik
...that inside my mind looked more like a vintage piece from the 40's rather than the homage to mayim bialik it turned out to be. (but granted, a Blossom hat is kinda cool in its own right.)

So as I was reading this post, sighing and talking about your incredible talent, dave looks over at me and says, "you are totally jealous, aren't you?" I just rolled my eyes and nodded. Of course I am! And then I made a point to warn him that I will never be doing this for our kids. I don't have the patience or the eye.

I feel nauseous.

did I ever tell you that I once made elliot a bib but was so humiliated at how it turned out, I couldn't give it you?

I have been working on a present for you since I have been the recipient of many beautiful things you have made, and have given back very little.

I suddenly am very, very intimidated.




and my favorite shower gift to give is a pack of white onesies and some soft pants because really, you can't have too many. rill-bot is usually just in a onesie too.


and oh yeah, I LOVE these items. I covet them.

why is it that everything you make for little girls, i desperately need in an adult size? does that make me immature? or young at heart?

diana said...

(have i already told you how perfect her name is? i have? oh, well i'm telling you again... her name is just perfect.)

I have missed your ridiculously good taste and amazing talent. And all for a little one who will poo herself 10 times a day. The second one, the blue with the red and white tie, is just amazingly simple and perfectly stylish. well done.

Jen said...

Oh seriously, loving them all. Especially the outfit w/ the matching hat.

You can have my green chair when I die if I can inherit your skills. Not sure how that's going to work, but oh well.

These are adorable. She's going to be the coolest kid around.

i am really liking a picture a day. but not liking that i can't comment on them.

kayleen said...

haha. i thought leaving comments open when i'm posting daily for an entire month would be way too much to ask of people. (i'm thinking of others here, i swear.)
