::mae's red car::
i picked up this fisher price car at an op shop a few months ago. it was the first thing that i ever let mae try out and she cried when i took her away from it so, of course, it came home with us. and it has been the best $8 i've ever spent. she walks, sometimes runs, around the house and yard with this thing, has just learned how to ride it properly and will point at it and whinge if it happens to be turned off and so not making it's variety of fun noises, sayings and songs. it's probably the reason she's not walking on her own yet but, meh, it doesn't bother me too much. i figure her little legs are going to be crazy strong by the time she figures out it's easier to get around without the car.
because mae isn't walking, it's futile to put her in skirts or dresses. she still crawls a fair bit and gets very unhappy when she's pulled short by a skirt caught under her knees. but oh, how i love wee, tiny skirts! how i love making wee, tiny skirts! so much that i've decided to make a few to take to my christmas markets, just to scratch that skirt making itch. i'm sure mae will come out with more than her fair share when she finally gets around to walking, too.
more good stuff tomorrow, time to get cracking on the sewing machine...
