carseat couture [1st edition]

November 14, 2009

ots of things come to me in the shower, when i’m driving, and generally when i’m not able to blog about them (naturally). well after the other day’s fiasco with trying to get one measly photo of Harper in her cute outfit, i realized that shaking a silly toy in front of her face isn’t going to work anymore. she couldn’t give a crap. my camera is full of pictures of half my child’s face and her bum as she is crawling away. so where can i guarantee she will be sitting still, facing the right direction, and semi-happy? somewhere where she is literally strapped in, but not in a call CPS kind of way? her carseat.

look, i’ve worked hard to create H’s wardrobe. since i can’t justify paying full price for clothes she will wear twice before she grows out of (no matter how much i love them), i do the majority of my shopping for her clothes at consignment stores. it’s fun. like a treasure hunt. now her closet is full of baby gap, janie & jack, greendog and the like – and all on the cheap. so yeah, i’d like a picture or 2 of her wearing the treasures i’ve found her. for what? i have no idea. i’ve told you before that i’m crazy. whatevs.

so we begin carseat couture. this will be a regular thing, a “segment” if you will. because i just have that much going on in my life these days. november 174

    I am so excited! I keep meaning to start taking pics of Piper in the carseat because she is always SO HAPPY when I come open the door (I’m actually pretty sure she thinks we’ve been playing hide and seek the whole time we’ve been in the car and I’ve finally “found” her because she makes he exact same face)so maybe these will inspire me. Harper’s beautiful face is always inspiring.

    As is that hair clippy…

    omg above commenter has a baby named piper AAAHHHH that’s so cute!

    in other news, i’m super excited for this new segment of your blog! i’ve thought once or twice about doing something similar with miss magoo, but it never came into fruition (and also i’ve been terrible about updating her wardrobe recently – she’s in footed jammies more days than i care to admit). i’ll be looking forward to h’s adorable wears! p.s. another great strapped-in-but-not-abusive place is the high chair. some of popsey’s best shots have been taken there recently. (-;

    loves you!
