Dear sweet Harper,
Welcome to the world of being photographed in Mama-Made. I hope you don't mind too much - you are, of course, like your brothers and sister - always welcome to opt out. That's okay too. But we make it pretty fun around here, these silly little photo shoot - generally they involve a lot of playing while I chase you around with a camera. Not a bad deal. Except right now, there's no chasing - you just lay there - often sleeping - which makes my job quite easy. Though it does mean that I end up with 100 photographs from every angle of you wearing whatever it may be, because, well, I think you're adorable and I can't stop clicking. Especially with every twitch of your toe, and quiver in that little chin of yours - a new photo each time. And late at night, when you're in a rare moment of not being on my chest or in my arms, I find these pictures on my computer and ooh and aah over you once again. And dream up what I can make you next. I can't help it. I'm in love.
PS. The pants? Oh yes. Those are the Picky Pants by Little Turtle Knits, that I made in a flurry of knitting last month. Such a great pattern - highly customizable, adaptable in many sizes and shapes (especially good for that big cloth diaper bum of yours). The yarn? Organik, by Maine's own The Fibre Company.
I'm so pleased that these fit you so early - even in your wee 7lb sweet little body. The next size up is on the needles now...just don't grow into them too fast, okay?
