It begins.

Here she is, in the first Mommy-made outfit we could get her in.
First Mommy-made outfit

You can read a bit about the romper here.  I also made the leggings using Made By Rae's baby tights pattern.  It's a free pattern and they fit her well.  The only problem I had was the pattern tells you to measure your baby's waist to get the elastic measurement.  That was hard to do when your baby isn't born yet.  I think I based my measurement on Rae's measurement for her 7 month old daughter but Ginny ended up being a little too chubby so these have to ride low on her hips.  I will definitely make more of these when I can carve out a little sewing time.  We have so many legless onesies and it's a little too chilly for bare legs despite being in Southern California.


Thank you all for your kind wishes on my last post.  It's so exciting to finally share Virginia with you all!  A birth story will be forthcoming as per popular demand.  And I'll give fair warning so anyone who doesn't want to read all of the gory details can look away.  It's tough to find time to do much of anything though, as any of you parents can understand I'm sure, so I can't promise when I'll get it all written up.  Turns out babies are a lot of work!  Who knew?
