Portrait Practice

We went to get some family pictures at Target last week, so I thought I'd better practice with Dorian to get him ready to be super cute on camera. As if he wasn't already a pro. P.S. No, he doesn't sit up on his own yet. Picture #5 was snapped moments before picture #7.

Stocking Dilemma

So...I made these stockings last year:
Russell and I both really like blue. Our Christmas tree is all decorated in blue, silver, and gold. Anyway. My problem is that now I need to make a stocking for Dorian, and I can't find any fabric that coordinates with the original stockings. It doesn't have to be blue (in fact, I'd like it not to be), but it has to not clash. You know? Here is a close-up of the fabric pattern: I got it at that cute little fabric shop up at Gardner Village. I guess maybe I need to go there again to see if they have red or green versions of this same pattern. And buy enough this time to last through however many kids there might be in the future...But in the meantime, I just thought I would throw it out there and ask if you have any recommendations on great fabric stores or quilt shops that I should try out.

Also, just one more toothy smile:

Some Babies Get All the Hair...

Do you see them? They are much more visible when he's crying, but he won't cry for the camera. It has some captivating power over him that just makes him stare at it. Maybe I should try that in the middle of the night.

I uploaded this one a little bigger than usual, so you can click on it and get a clear view: Here, he had rolled over to the chair and gotten stuck, so of course instead of helping him, I grabbed the camera. He needs to learn how to get himself out of situations like this, right?
