The Perfect Gown

I’ve always loved babies in gowns–you know the kind that have the mits you can fold over their hands so that they won’t scratch themselves. But that teeny, tiny baby gown phase was never enough for me. The problem is that my big-rubber-dolly babies always outgrew them way before I was finished with the look and feel of them.

It’s not like you can just buy a bigger size or anything because manufacturer’s seem to  think that newborns are the only one’s who would ever wear them. Well they’re wrong.

I need them. I need the soft, mushy, “I’m still a baby, hold me,” message that a sweet, cotton gown gives. So, when Dane was too big for the little ones–I made my own.

This particular gown worked perfectly for sweet Daney boy…

and baby bald kid–back when he had hair.

Now, 16 years later–it’s still making our babies soft and warm…

all the better to mush them with.

There are just some things that should go on forever…

and we’ve found one.

  1. THAT, my dear is because they are made from such good stock. Well, and because they all have something in common…you know…me. HA!

  2. That’s sooo cool to see those old pictures! 🙂 I’m glad you’re figuring out the scanner… it makes me happy! It’s surprising how much they all have in common! I love it! That makes me want to organize the pictures and do more comparisions!!! 🙂

    Gowns ARE great!!! I think it makes Baby Chomp look like a little Who. Not one of those ugly, weird, hoof-in-nose-and-mouth kinda Who’s, but the original Cindy-Lou-Who kind! 🙂

  3. Awww… I didn’t know you had pictures of all three of them in that gown. So cute. April I didn’t realize how much they look alike either until this. Wow…!
