Celebrate the Boy Bow Tie

So during Celebrate the Boy month Delia Creates shared her tutorial for a boys' bow tie that you actually tie. As in, the old fashioned way. I thought the littlest little is ready for an adorable tie, or two or three.


 So here is bow tie number two. The first one was too small. As crooked as this looks it's close to just right. I need some more practice on the actual tie part of a bow tie. You tube is perfect for that task. I think I need to add only about 1" more to make the tie easier. Hopefully I can make a few more before out trip to San Diego. I'll show you any exciting deets if there are any. I pretty much followed the tutorial, I even used bra/swimsuit hooks that Delia recommends and I liked it just peachy.

On a total side note: we saw a new pediatrician when we moved from Ohio back to California and he wore bow ties. I kind of liked him right away. He took one look at Rocco from across the room and said to us, "he needs to see a pediatric opthalmologist  as soon as possible." 

I cried. From relief not sadness. I just knew something was wrong with my baby. Rocco was 13 months old, blind as a bat and totally undiagnosed. I knew I liked that doctor, and his bow ties were pretty cool.

That came out so cute! And three cheers for awesome pediatricians - mine doesn't wear bow ties, but he was my dr. when I was little and he totally rules!

I love how you tell stories, and this one about Rocco's pediatrician is rivoting...i want to hear the rest! When did you start thinking about his eyes? I want the whole story...

Meanwhile, could Vinny be any more gorgeous? Holy cow - he could be the national Dutch baby model (he looks so Dutch!) And, he look sooooooooooo much like you! Does James ask where his genes are?

Hysterically cute! I'm fairly certain that Felix would rip it right off, but it looks like such a fun, simple project that I can't not try.
