from the vaseline lens

This post is for the Mo' Babies Shower - today is the last day to get posts in for the celebration of the impending babies for Kristen at Motherhood Uncensored and Rebecca of Girl's Gone Child - two women I adore. The theme of this shower is reminiscing about those new baby days - the good stuff. So here is my "good stuff".

I'm a woman of silly words. For example, each time I started this post it would read very soppy because feel good stuff doesn't come naturally for me. Everything I wrote came out all gooey and sticky. Great, now I'm craving cinnamon buns. Anyhow, I turned to the archives of 7 bajillion photos from Gigi's early days for inspiration and then decided those early day images spoke way louder than any flowery words I try to spew.

So here it goes... the just a few of those good things I remember from the early days.






So there you have it, some self-indulgent snaps from memory lane. Remember when they were so freakin' small and floppy? I wish I could get that new baby smell back - not that I don't enjoy the new exotic ones the preschool age offers - but mmmmmmmmmmm.... I love new baby smell. Best wishes to Kristen and Rebecca and here's to having all your early days full of good memories.

That is so sweet! I also loved dressing my kids (and not having them immediately rip it off and put something else on!).

These are great! I'm always shocked to look at baby pictures and then glance up at my boys and see how big they've become! I crave babies the way some people crave ice cream. I also crave ice cream, but I crave babies more!

I also wish I had (a) the ability to braid my hair like you did and (b) that most kick ass White Stripes shirt! Could you be any more cool? I do not not think so. In fact, I dare not think so.

I love those. She was so cute (and still is). Baby giggles are the best.

She is so stinkin' cute in those picture that I barely noticed your fantastic rack. I mean your braids. Your fantastic braids.

Hee hee.

Hi! Just noticed you have the older version of the Creative Commons license. Thought I'd let you know so you can update it :-)

I love the 4th picture! She looks like she's ready to punch the camera!

Totally off topic but my favourite thing was that AWESOME Stripes T of yours! (And you know I normally gush all over Gigi pics, so that's sayin' something!)

But also - you can come sniff my baby any time... in a totally no really, I mean The Bun! way, that was meant.

Dressing up the baby and taking pictures was/is one of the highlights of my mat leaves. (You gotta know how I loves me some Halloween. Costumes! Funny costumes on babies! Good times)

I miss that new baby smell more than new car smell. Still trying to convince "the man" that another baby would be fabulous. He isn't buying what I am selling.
