"A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on."
First off, excuse this horrible photo!! I have had sick kids and now a sick husband for over a week and a half. I had to take these at night...not my favorite time of the day to take pictures.
This past weekend, however, I was bound and determined to concentrate on Button's arrival.
I have been forcing myself to realize that we might actually have a healthy, hollering baby in our arms next week. It is a tough thing to imagine!
Because we don't know if Button is a boy or a girl, I really wanted to make a few special onsies for the first few weeks before we hopefully do some major gender specific bedding and clothing shopping!
So I did a Valentine's lollipop, a green/yellow rattle applique, and a sweet lamb! JJ feels the V-day onsie is a bit girly, so it may not ever be used.
And speaking of GIRLY stuff. I just couldn't help myself...matching hats........
A fabric flower daisy with a silver button center! I love the yellow and green combo!
One rolled fabric rose with a leather button center. One rolled ribbon rose with a pearl button center. And a ribbon pom-pom on the side. The buttons are from my "special stash"!
An Oragami Folded Fabric Flower with a felt heart button and a small pink button. This one might go back to the worktable though....I think it needs a few more petals for a bit more volume...and a little more red fabric wouldn't hurt.
Now the REAL question is........
If Button isn't a girl, what lucky little baby girl will get these?!
