Of course, I haven't forgotten my boy. I sometimes make things for him too. He's a little pickier though, and wants nothing to do with my sundresses. I cleaned out Sage's closet recently and realized how much he's grown this past year. Clothes he used to wear all the time are now way too small. When I noticed his belly button and ankles peeking out from his favorite skully kokoleo pajamas, I knew it was time for a some new ones. So I made him these:
It's always nice to have a good soft sturdy pair of pajamas. Coming soon! Kokoleo pajamas.
I also made him that Wacky Packages pillow in the foreground given to me by my friend Susie at this yard sale last year. It matches the poster behind him. This is our nightly view of him - comfy in bed with stacks of books around him, reading for hours if we let him (not on school nights though). Captain Underpants, Hank the Cowdog, Magic TreeHouse, Goosebumps, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Eregon, plus books about animals and insects and oceans and the human body, and occasionally still some oldskool Dr. Suess and Shel Silverstein. He devours them.
Behind him, beside the Captain Underpants Super Diaper Baby poster, is a cross-stitch my bff since elementary school Carrie Mahle made him when he was born. In front of him is his trusty Blanken, now faded and frayed and falling apart. *sniff* My boy is growin' up!
I've been trying to take lots of pictures of these kids in this place lately, because pretty soon we'll be in a new place. It's official - we're movin' out! Adios Los Angeles... Seattle, here we come!
