Full disclosure: I spent an inordinate amount of time looking at baby clothes on Etsy, especially for someone who doesn't have an infant and probably will never have one again. I really can't help myself, because shops like The Wishing Elephant exist and produce robot baby costumes that look remarkably similar to R2D2 and all of a sudden I find myself measuring my chihuahua/pomeranian mix puppy and wondering if I could order him an extra, extra small.

How absolutely ADORBZ is this lion hat and diaper cover set made by Offbeat Families Flickr pool member HiLL.jO?! SO cute I had to cruise Etsy to see what other lion-themed preciousness is available, and naturally that's a veritable treasure trove of diaper covers, birthday cakes, nursery designs, and so. many. outfits that are waiting for you to "AWWW" all over them.
I've always thought it'd be extra wondrous in a super geeky way to combine mountains of tulle with superheros, but I didn't realize someone else had already done it.
Every so often I can't resist the urge to gawk at material cuteness, and right now I am totally in love with little baby and toddler feet wrapped up in Robeez. I (foolishly! FOOLISHLY!) spent my son's infancy under the impression that it would be silly to put him in shoes. I distinctly remember being told once that he should be in shoes because it was cold out, and I remember looking the person in question in the eye and pointing out that my child had on two layers of socks.
I actually met the brains behind Htavos Kooky Monster Art Shop at Geek Girl Con, and purchased one of their "La-La Monsters" (they're designed by his five-year-old niece!) — which unfortunately don't appear to be listed at the shop! But you can snag one of these Toaster and Pop Tart Twin Plushies, which are suuuper cute.
Here's what you can expect to find within: at least two photos featuring pink hair, a baby named Waylon posing with his fave guitar, and a link to a Google Chrome commercial that just might make you cry.
