the baby (pronounced a bit french by the little man, "bébé") has become more and more popular during the last weeks. spencer has always loved to carry it around with him and pat it's back, but for the last couple of weeks, he has picked it up more often and it has even stayed in bed with him at night.
the other day, shortly before we wanted to leave the house, spencer realized that the baby must be quite cold without a hat and with nothing on it's bare feet. and so started my very first sewing assignment by my little one. i took some jersey fabric and very quickly made a pair of simple socks and a little hat. now the baby could come shopping with us!
the overall the baby is wearing by the way was a gift made to us by my grandmother. it was made by her mother (spencer's great-great-grandmother!)
another cute thing happened later that day. even though he himself hardly remembers being carried, he must have seen babies being carried around the neighbourhood. because he expressed the desire to carry the baby infront of him. so i took one of my scarves which served as wrap to help him out in his very first babywearing experience!
