Itty Bitty Baby Legs

Years before Liam was created & back before I met Rob, I enjoyed reading family related blogs. I always loved peering into other people's lives, seeing what was thrown their way and how they handled it. I liked watching their kids grow up, celebrating birthdays and sharing holidays. I dreamed about how my future family would do these things.

Sweet Juniper (points to link on sidebar) was always one of my favorites-- a hipster couple leaves San Francisco and moves to Detroit, lawyer mom & stay at home dad. The writing was always entertaining and their daughter Juniper was adorable. A few years later, their son Gram entered the picture, complete with fantastic birth story posts. While I obviously never knew this family, I loved reading what was happening in their lives each day.

Back in 2007, Sweet Juniper introduced me to BabyLegs. Back then, they were wacky kids legwarmers-- something that only this ahead-of-the-trends couple would dress their children in. But now? Everyone's raving about them and their line has so many adorable patterns I don't know how anyone could pass them up. (Don't believe me? Heir to Blair blogged about them this week. Check out her 20% discount!)

With Liam arriving right before it gets cold and the inevitability of him learning to crawl on our hardwood floors, I decided he needs some. Stat. BabyLegs has quite a few retired patterns on sale right now (and Blair's discount helps!) but I've found that Ebay has an amazing selection, all new & super cheap. They have "My First Baby Legs" (slightly smaller and shorter) as well as the standard size.

So, 4 new fabulous pairs of BabyLegs will be arriving at our house next week!

What better way to celebrate your first Halloween at 6 weeks old than these orange and black polka-dot baby legs?
To coordinate with his 5 billion brown and blue outfits (with monkeys) we bought: Overall, I am not a fan of orange, but I couldn't resist pairing these blue and orange stripes with the goldfish in bag onesies that I made.
Springtime here we come!
I love that these can be used on legs or arms and that combined with a onesie diaper changes will be super easy! We have two showers coming up, and I know I have to stop buying things, but I rationalize that these weren't on our registry, so no one would have known we wanted them.

That excuses the shopping, right? :)
