Our Big Big Girl + Knits for our Purl

Mmmmm. Delicious chewy giraffe.

I have mentioned before that Josie is a big strong girl for her age. In fact, at almost 5 months she is wearing mostly 12-18 month clothing (in part because the cloth diapers add some junk to her trunk, but mostly because they fit!) Last night we had a visit from Josie's good friend Baby MoMo and her big brother, Ducky. As they sat together on the couch I was once again struck by the disparity in their sizes. (Keep in mind, MoMo is a week older than Josie, and was a pound lighter when she was born.)

Sweet babies.


When Noonie came to visit awhile back, she made a charming hat and thumbless mittens for Josie out of beautiful variegated merino wool yarn. At the time, the weather was still quite sultry, so the lovely knits were displayed, unworn, on the shelf in Josie's room. The time has come, however, to layer up, and the other day I prevailed upon Josie to model them. She was surprisingly obliging. Thanks again, GA Noonie!

I love the pointy elf top!

Bonus Picture: Josie wearing the Elizabeth Zimmermann Baby Surprise sweater that Noonie made as a shower gift. What great colors!

Well, let's see... her dad is well over 6' tall and her mother is taller than your average woman. I think you've got a power forward in your midst!

hey, she is growing like sixty...what a cutie, and yes, big is better. I know you didn't say that, but think of the top shelves she will be able to reach, unlike her peanut-sized friends!! Cute as can be. Love A Boof
