Calendar Guys/Girls

After my first Grandson was born in August I decided that it would be lovely to make a calendar of his first year, comprising of a snapshot taken on the 18th day of each month, with little Theo dressed as adorably cute as possible.

There are thousands of sites to choose novelty outfits from and after hours of oohing, aahing and deliberating I picked the following vendor:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Baby-Newborn-Costume-Hat-Set-handmade-Outfit-Knit-Crochet-Cap-Photography-Prop-/281421900288?pt=UK_Baby_Girls&var=&hash=item41860d6a00

After waiting four weeks for the 12 costumes I had chosen, they arrived in 2 parcels and we opened with great delight. The costumes are indeed cuddly crocheted costumes of ducks, chicks, frogs, santas, et cetera.

The description had told us they were for newborns to 6 months.
SWEET BABY LORD! these outfits are huge! and I really do mean HUGE! The hats fit me and I'm 49yrs of age.....you get the picture. My grandson will probably wear these outfits when he and his friends are attending his own stag weekend in his late twenties.....they will probably still be too big!

The moral of the story is, don't get hung up by cute Anne Geddes like pictures when trawling for novelty baby outfits. Far better to find a pattern for the outfit you'd like, learn to crochet....and do it yourself instead of ending up with 12 gargantuan sized animal costume. (uurgh......fetishist adult image just burned itself onto my subconscious)

Happy Ebaying and BzzAgenting folks
