If only they were wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string. Anyway.
Yay! The pants that Grandma ordered on etsy allll the way from Canada from an adorable shop called NicandElli came today! Or maybe they arrived earlier because I have been too sick and busy to check the mail but here they are! So freaking cute. I can’t wait for Babystar to get back in cloth so we can test them out. I guess I should wash them first, also. Boo.
The front is pretty but the back is where it’s at. Maybe they really will fit over her cloth bum and stay up. We shall see.
The long blocks of color at the waist and legs are to fold up, scrunch up, pull down, whatever, to make these MAGIC pants fit from 6 months to 3 years. I only wish we had bought some earlier! But if they make it until she’s three, I’ll take it!
Does anyone have these, or Maxaloones by any other etsy seller (there are quite a few)?
(Plus Grandma bought these so no change to the bottom line. EVEN BETTER.)

I have three Beco baby carriers. And only one baby. And only one body, for that matter. I have two Geminis and a Soleil. I’m not even sorry. I like keeping one in the house and one in the car. Though I’m still sort of annoyed that I bought them right before Beco added a sweet pocket to the Geminis. And have you seen the new designs? Oh my god. So cute. And while the lack of a pocket will likely forever vex me, I am no longer sad that I bought a boring black carrier before I knew better.
I took a leap of faith, and a deep breath, and I crossed my fingers and toes, and ordered a custom carrier and strap cover set from a nice lady on etsy. Nancy at MyCottageTime made these beauties for me.
The peacock feather fabric is so pretty! I found the fabric on etsy, too, from MoonaFabrics. Nancy was really easy to work with. I just sent her the link for the fabric that I liked, and she ordered it and adjusted my custom price accordingly. Which meant that I did not get to see the print in person until my package arrived, so I was really blown away by how pretty it is in real life. You could have knocked my over with a feather (carrier cover)! Ugh. Sorry. Irresistible puns are my kryptonite.
The total with custom fabric upcharge and shipping and an extra set of strap covers was $59.45. It was at my doorstep just ten days from purchase, which is great speed considering that Nancy first had to order and receive the special fabric. I love it. I just love it.
Did I mention that I love it?
