Two Things


baby raccoon

1.  I bought this hat years ago on clearance at Gymboree to add to my baby gift stash, and I could never bring myself to give it away.  I'm so glad I kept it.  This is the cutest baby raccoon I have ever seen.

2.  Speaking of Gymboree, whose idea was it to make a shirt full of choking hazards that would be within easy reach of an infant's mouth?  Come on, guys. You can't expect sleep-deprived mothers to notice these things when we are shopping for our babies.  We all just go, "BUTTONS!!! IN A HEART SHAPE!!! CUTE OMG YESSSSS CLEARANCE $4.99 PLUS AN ADDITIONAL FORTY PERCENT OFF!!!!!"  Or maybe that was just me, and that's why this shirt was still on clearance at such a great price.

(For the record, the buttons are all stitched on pretty securely, and so far Elvie has only chewed on one or two of them before I noticed.)

  1. The buttons! I can't believe I hadn't thought of that when I saw the picture. Ahhh, but she looks so dang cute. And that hat?! For sure, for sure, THE cutest raccoon in the world.

  3. Ok, usually I lurk silently, but I had to comment to say that she looks incredible. I can't even believe how much healthier she looks. And seriously, wicked cute.

  4. The hat is cute but the buttons! I agree.......cute but not exactly practical! My cousins in New Zealand posted a photo of their 9 month old recently on Facebook which was an X-ray which showed that he had swallowed the zipper off his cardigan = which was the shape of a teddy bear's head and you could see it in all it's glory, eyes and smiley face too! Luckily it came out naturally 4 days later!

  5. As a mother of an infant myself, I can only imagine your delight in seeing those sweet cheeks fill out and the healthy gleam in her eyes! A stranger in Los Angeles delights along with you!
