EDITED: Guess who got a little under the weather today. Part Two will show up later this week.
This week's feature comes to you in two parts as Part One was sick and Part Two was only halfway dressed and ready for the Mr. to take their photo when he arrived home from his drill weekend lunch break. By the time Army guy got home for good it was dark and Part Two was worn out and Part One just wanted to growl at the dinosaurs and give them kisses. Part Two plans on being back in action for Monday evening and promises to look into a camera remote for Christmas.
Ruby did look rather adorable despite her temperature. She woke up from her morning nap feeling hot and looking rather pitiful but we got plenty of cuddle time in to comfort and distract her and she was asking for solid food again by the end of the day. I can't tell you how much I love that she can sign for what she wants but it was especially evident today that there was only one thing on her mind while she was feeling under the weather!
I took these photos right after she woke up from her nap. I had to distract her with her baby doll to look up for me and it wasn't long before she started signing 'milk'!
Her top is actually a dress that I wore when I was three months old as seen in the photo below. I had a hard time getting it over her head but it still works well as a top. The shoes are the same ones she wore at her birthday party that belonged to me when I was about her age.
Here is Ruby at three months.
Cardigan: Target '09
Top: Vintage dress
A few of my favorite Etsy shops full of vintage kid's clothing are Hart and Sew, Oh Sydney, Freckle Wonder, and The Fancy Tail. I like to search through Etsy every week with the keywords 'toddler' or 'baby' and 'dress' to see what has been listed and then I favorite things I love and need to think about. I always take into consideration how much it will cost once shipping is added, if it's special, if it'll fit her in the right season (although you can really add a cardigan to anything for the winter), and if it's something I might not find locally.Vintage Here, Vintage There: Week One
