One of the most frustrating aspects of our quarantine was that I wasn't able to visit my friend Claire and
I pulled out all of my trusty Ottobres, and made her a tiny outfit out of tulip-printed organic knit. The little reversible bonnet in the top picture, a cuffed raglan long sleeve t-shirt, and some feety trousers.
Sitting on the floor and with my nervous hands offering head support, Maia had her first shot of holding a baby. It seems that all of our friends who've had babies this year have had wonderfully placid babies, that actually sleep and are generally agreeable. If I could be assured that I'd get one of these magic babies I'd be seriously tempted, but previous form suggests not. Anyone who would like to offer surrogacy, please email with your magic baby credentials.
