Baby A is now 6 months old! I really can't believe that it has been that long since she was born. I had forgotten just how fast time seems to fly when they are really little. She got her first tooth yesterday. She wasn't to fussy about it so it wasn't to awful bad.
Needless to say she has outgrown the booties, slippers, socks etc that I had made for her. Poor girl is forced to go out with just her little sockies on! How awful! I had a few minutes today so I went online looking for a pattern for a cute little shoe that I could make for her. Unfortunately, there are few out there and none I really wanted to make for her. Then I came across a pattern that I had used for some of her first shoes and thought, "I can adapt that!" So I did. The original pattern can be found at http://www.geocities.com/gossgirl2/fakemjs.htm and I have to say they work up really cute. I did Baby A's in brown and put a pink flower on the toe. They were adorable.
