Wardrobe latest addition

For Courtney's baby, that is. Here's a little top I made out of some fabric leftovers from a T-shirt I'd made for Jess when she was about Courtney's age.

And an overall to go with it.....

The rick-rack trim was in my stash (contributed, I think, by Great Grandma at some point), and Courtney saw it one day and thought it was so pretty... so I found a place for it.

Here's the outfit on the baby:

Yes, she still has her tights on. They live up to their name and are rather hard for Courtney to get on and off... so they stay on. :)

Courtney was again taking pictures with her own camera (seriously, I think she's going to be a great photographer someday... she's already very good!). Our "assistant", however, seemed to have better ideas of what the blanket should be for.

She did this by herself. Can't even see her, can you? Courtney thought it was quite funny. :)

And of course here's our little modeling "mommy" with her fashionista baby.

Her smiles have changed recently... not so "cheese"-y anymore. When I asked her to smile, this is what I got:

Here's the one I like best, though:

The headband ornament is another pretty ponytail holder made by Auntie Kris. Nice that it works to decorate a headband, too! And she brushed her own hair, Mommy! :)

AH!! So cute! LOVE those overalls! Much to Luke's dismay I LOVE stopping in at the Osh Kosh outlet near C.S. and saying cant we just get some overalls for ALL our friends having babies?!

Too cute! Nice to see that baby-dolls do at some point really do stay dressed. We have naked babies, pretty much all of the time!

Now there's a photo.

The last one.
Not that others haven't been good too, but this one stands out. A very nice pose and nice look. Courtney is captured in that photo.

Thanks, everyone!

Rick-rack is coming back, Grace! :) I think we've gotten old enough to see a lot of styles revisted. Aargh! ;)

What a little cutie! And how blessed she is to have a grandma to sew her dollie outfits! :)

Thanks, Kerri! Glad to have you stop by!
