arlo has been thinking. she said to me this morning, "mom, its about time you took some photos of the cool gifts i have received. oh and my faux-hawk..." today was another beautiful day, and according to my atomic clock it was 79 degrees!! we spent a bunch of time outside. eliot and collette burned through two bottles of bubbles. mostly due to the numerous times collette knocked them over. and i finally, finally managed to take some pictures in good light. take a look at these teeny, tiny baby converse that leslie made for arlo.
baby converse!
kinda makes your brain hurt to think about all those itty bitty crochet stitches, not to mention how cute they are! and they came with a sweet little dress and hat in a strawberry print. thank you so much leslie!

and dearest kerry. my wonderful friend. she made the most beautiful quilt for arlo and i am in love with it. here is a close up of one the squares.

arlo's quilt
oh i just love looking at it! she used some of our favorite 30s reproduction prints. who doesnt love the 30s??? you can read her post here, and see a picture of it in action here. i just cant get over the fact that she made this. i have a paralyzing fear of quilts. i dont know why, but it makes me that much more in awe of kerry. you are the best! and thank you everyone for all the cute clothes for arlo. she appreciates having some of her own things too along with the handmedowns from big sister. as soon as she gets big enough to wear some of them, i will take some pictures!

and very, very, very much overdue are some pictures of a gift that collette received from the amazing teri in january. teri emailed me out of the blue and wanted to send me some hairclips for collette, just because! and they are fabulous!!
cherries
the detail and hand stitching is amazing! tiny cherries! if you know any little girl or want to wear them yourself (i do!), proceed immediately to giddygiddy.com and place an order. thank you so, so much teri. sorry it took so long to get these taken! there are more pictures on flickr of some of the other styles, modeled so nicely by collette of course.

so tomorrow we are going to our friend shannons house to attempt some family pictures. keep your fingers crossed!

Found your site through Soulemama a few months ago and I'm really enjoying it. Congrats on the new baby! She's a beauty. I LOVE her name too. Have you seen this: www.jenville.com/pleasures/uncleliamshow.html

I debated if I should send the link. If you love it as much as I do, then GREAT. If you don't like it, you might get stuck singing the song. Anyway, had to share and keep up the terrific blogging!
