I had such a lovely time making a little pinafore for Alice last week (just in time for her great grand-mother's birthday celebration).
However, while I was ironing some fabric, a certain baby girl decided to crawl for the first time (across our living room)...and reached the scissors that were on the floor (to cut the PDF pattern)!
Let me tell you that I felt like the most irresponsible mother ever but luckily Alice didn't get injured.
So this week at the agenda: baby proofing a bit our place...and no more scissors on the floor!

hoola tallulah: When you think about it, learning how to walk is incredible!!! This would explain why Alice sleeps so much (lovely naps for us).
little gray pixel: The face-plants on the ground is so sad.
clairsy: Oh, thank you for the link. It is such a beautiful poster.
lindsey [homegrown spud]: Thank you! The battle to keep things minimalist (especially with generous family members) was pretty difficult at first but since I took the time to explain why I wanted to do this and the benefits for Alice (and Dan and I) things got easy. However, I had to re-explain everything a few days ago when Christmas presents became the new hit topic in the family.
gillian: Alice was very intense with the rolling thing. It gave me such anxiety because she would roll on her belly and sleep like that...she was about 3-4 months old. I didn't want to sleep just in case something would happen to her. Alice is very into crawling but she just doesn't want to sit on the floor (even with toys in front of her) for more than 1-2 minutes. We might have to bring her to an osteopath (this is our doctor's suggestion...I don't know much about osteopath) to see if she has tension or something in her back-neck. I'm so happy that you like my little blog...but sad that you are lonely...come to Montreal and we can have tea together. xox
jennifer: People are always giving me strange looks when I tell them that Alice is still sleeping in our bed sometimes, that her crib is in our bedroom and that it will be like that for a while. One step at the time. I love that your little dude is making is own decisions at his own rhythm...you are such a great mom :)
