That picture with the wind blowing through you open windows .... it's so beautiful!

Can't wait to see Amelia's new clothes. She is one lucky little lady.

Jessica

Where did you guys go for your walk? I am always looking for good walking trails :)

Regina

Alicia, you have a tendency to put me on sensory overload! Those cherry blossoms (?) are magnificent! I'd have my windows open too, but it's pretty cold in Chicago today. Every child should be so fortunate as to have parents like you and Andy!

Vintage baby clothes patterns are my weakness. I started collecting them years ago, and now that is almost all I make for my girl! She has already had several prairie maxi dresses and bonnets in calico. They look adorable on toddlers playing outside! Look for a (vintage!) Simplicity 7275. Super simple maxi prairie dress with bonnet. (Think Holly Hobby style...) That was my favorite pattern when she was about 12 to 18 months. Also makes an adorable nightgown.

I'm so envious of your open windows! I also have to admit to being envious of your lovely girl's cuddly soft cottony wardrobe, and her cozy blankets--she always looks just perfectly contented and snug. Mmmm. I'd like my mama to dress me in duds like that, too, and I'm 44! :)

Pssst - which baby carrier is that? I've got a little one maybe a month older than yours, and he's definitely outgrown the wrap and mei tai I have for him!

Hanna

Made-by-Rae's Geranium Dress is gorgeous and the pattern is pretty versatile!

I made a pair of overalls for my niece from this pattern: http://whipstitchfabrics.com/blog/patterns/ I really like how they turned out http://www.annabelvita.com/2012/12/12/dotty-whipstitch-overmost/, but I'm not sure if they go down as little as Amelia is now (I made the 12 months size).

All of this makes me very happy. Thank you.

Hi there - that pasta looks yummy... can you share the recipe??

sadi

your photos are always so fresh and clear and have such vitality. I know they've always been like that, but even more so now. And I think I know why, when a baby comes along, you just look at things differently. Colours are brighter, air is fresher, the world is a nicer place. That's my theory anyway :O)

Mimi - absolutely love that.

Kristi

Oh dear, how the time flies. My mother is not one to throw things away, she has been sewing things for her grandkids from patterns she bought for us.

Laura

Alicia, your post just made my day. Looking at your beautiful pictures of spring makes my heart ache. I'm in upstate NY and we have snow today. Much like a winter wonderland. Sweet, sweet Amelia! The photos you post of her always make me smile. So happy for you and Andy.

jolie

I am so not an authority but have you tried burdastyle.com? You can find some cute patterns there sometimes if you hunt around...

I want to walk in the woods with you and Mimi!:)))
xoxoxo
jolie

p.s. have you seen all of the Liberty stuff at J.Crew these days? it makes me think of you...x

Monique

Our eldest daughter's name is Mylène..she is Mimi too sometimes:) even now at almost 38!
Miss Amelia looks so cute in that soft little hat..
Spring has sprung where you are..We are in the midst of a no school snowstorm~Looking forward to breezes and open windows!
I made little maxi dresses..pinafores..etc too:) Loved it..
C'est la vie!Love the moss ♥~

Rosie

Mimi is such a sweet name for an even sweeter little girl. Have you ever heard of the children's book, "Mimi, The Merry-Go-Round Cat"? It was a favorite when I was a wee one in the 1960s. :)

Jamile

I'm not a mom, far from it, but this made me cry. You both are so blessed to have each other. I'm so pleased for you.

Amber

She is absolutely adorable! I love her chubbiness! Always makes me smile! And I'm kind of jealous {okay, really jealous} of those blooms and the open windows. We're still hunkered down under ice and snow here in the Northeast.

tinajo

Lovely pics as always - and the sky is magnificent in the first pic! :-)

Linda in Waterloo

Five Months??!! Really? Wow - I feel like we just met her!
Upright already - Clover is wise to be catching some snoozies, she's going to need it! So much fun ahead...

Cassie

Okay, lots of wonderful things, of course, but that pasta/meat sauce is making my stomach growl... Recipe, please?

Marianne Wille

Mimi is a sweet name for a sweet girl. Mimi is my childhood name too. Have fun making clothes! I loved making corduroy pants and little knit sweaters for my little boys, who are no longer so little. Can you share the hat source? I want to knit some caps for some wee peeps.

It is snowing in Kansas today but the daffodils are coming up in my garden. xoxo

Meri

I'm jealous of your spring! It snowed here just yesterday. Sigh. Mimi is an adorable nickname! And thank so much for the pattern shops. I am not a seamstress, but my mom is. I'm thinking I can get Granna to make up some clothes for my girl;)

Thistle

I can't wait to see Amelia's new clothes. I'm sure they will be beautiful and she will look like a perfectly old-fashioned baby in them. I think she has an old-fashioned look naturally, like a vintage Ivory Soap advertisement.

Shelley Noble

oh. Your joys are our joys. A complete family at last. Bless you four always. Never has a babe been so loved as this.

When I Take Pictures

  • I take pictures every day

    Since August of 2011 I've been using a Canon EOS 60D with an EF 18-200mm kit lens and an EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens.
