This is my favorite way to dress babies when they’re still so little. Classic union suits and fun patterned socks.

August’s outfit is vintage, and his socks were a gift from sweet Yvonne all the way from the Netherlands.

Derby Lite

Yesterday, I went with my friend, Amy, to Derby Lite’s “Get in Gear” Day.

I used to skate when I was younger. As a girl, I was at the North Ave. Roller Rink as often as possible from the ages of 8-12 (I had a girlhood crush on Pete, one of the skate-guards). Then I got a pair of roller blades and I was outside on those whenever the weather was nice enough through my early teen years. Then by the time I was 15 or 16, what happened? I was too cool to skate anymore? Believe me, I was not cool. Anyway, I grew up, and I hadn’t skated since. Until yesterday.

Amy and I took turns skating and watching August (he’s still exclusively breastfeeding, so I had to bring him with). I wondered if I would still be a good skater. Answer: no. Would I still enjoy it? Yes. Do I want to sign up for the beginner level? Emphatically, yes. Amy was left wondering “where should I buy some suitable workout pants?”, whereas I was wondering “where do they find those awesome hot pants?“. I mean, if I’m gonna do it, I might as well do it right.

One Month Old (August’s Monthly Photo)

As you can see, I decided to take August’s photo in the library. Can you believe he’s one month old already? He weighs eleven and a half pounds now, and is already outgrowing his 0-3 month clothes. I wish he were happier for this, his first picture, but I was losing daylight (so no time to postpone our photo shoot). Oh well — I don’t mind having the occasional crying baby photo.

Happy one-month birthday, little guy!

(I’ll be taking a photo of August sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing his pin each month until he’s two years old. I also take monthly photos of his sister, Eleanor.)
