Oh, I should note, no "People should Fairy this to me" pleading allowed. Not looking for any of this. Just want others to enjoy what I'm not going to buy...but what SHOULD be bought for it's beauty!!!!

OMG OMG OMG!!! I've coveted that one, too!!! I kind of wonder if we all just surf around wishing we'd buy the same stuff. That cover is AMAZING!!!!!! If it were a large, I think I'd be far to weak. It's amazing!!!!

(Oh, and I added a tye dye shirt that slipped my mind. I love it, too!)

Oooh, and Kate... I love your DDDDC!!! :LOL

Hmmm, good point. Ok... then, here are my more GN and manly choices...

If you can stand the electronic snow falling without having a seizure, Hidden Pearl Creations has some nice used things... check out that StarBunz embellished goodie at the bottom.
http://hiddenpearlcreations.com/stor...asp?Cat=Resale

Then, Calico Baby has custom AIOs open. She's sooo fast, sooo nice, sooo quality, and has sooo many cool fabrics!!!

Oh that romper is cute! But my babe is already 18mos...must not buy...

now, talk to me about BBH...I may be able to help y'all out there! How do the smalls run? We can still wear size 1 RB shells over some fitteds, as well as Medium Babe Luxe, Medium Kiwis are on the large size (we'd be better served by smalls there, I think)...um, she can wear small luxe pants (as capris)...any chance she could squeeze in? She's a thin 22lbs...but for that price I'd rather it wasn't just a squeeze!

I love these shorts:

I think they would look perfect with a scalloped or ruffled edge around the bottom.

I went to that page and you are soooo right about the snowfall seizure. I got a headache (well, more of one, everyone here is sick and I've had a headache for three days.) There are some nice things on that page

Kate, that BBH daisy cover is sooo lovely. I want it so much. I know I will someday own a BBH wool cover, I am just waiting till just the right moment.

Someone needs to buy these http://www.knittedsandfitteds.com/pr...00ce81a38b5984 . My mind reels with the wonderful colors those could be.

There's probably nice things elsewhere on Hidden Pearl... I just can't bring myself to look around. I keep twitching! I hope she doesn't do a strobe light thing for New Years... might set off my pace maker! Dana, if you're reading... please make the snow go away, we want to drool over your dipes!

C has a small bbh wio and the fit is very nice. Where he's outgrown other sz1 and smalls, this one still fits (over a trim diaper b/c of the rise-- he still has lots of snaps wider to go). He's 30" (19+lbs) at 9mo and is outgrowing the rise on various covers, although I can still get him into his BBH small. The rise doesn't work over his night diapers as well, but the thighs/waist are still great. If rise isn't a problem for your dd, I suspect she could fit into a small very nicely. (I don't have any luxe or kiwi so can't compare )

The snow didn't bother me b/c at least its on a blue background. What I can't do are the multi=colored, overly bright sites. I sort of liked the snow. And at least it didn't make the cursor go all wiggy-- now that really does trigger my migraines

There are some beautiful dip dyed wool pants and t-shirt/wool pants sets at Luxe Baby that are just sitting there. They are too small for my little guy. Some one go get them!!!!

We should be okay with a 17" rise except over her night diapers. Okay, I don't know how tall DD is, but she is 18mos and 22lbs! Is she a little pipsqueak or what? ...and she is BIG compared to my first DD!

I'll bet it would really work well for you! Alexander is about 22-24 pounds and I just got a small BBH wool cover. I'll bet it will fit him until PL. Her covers are really really nice too. If I had a girl I would soooo go for that Daisy cover.

Someone took the hint and snatched up that daisy cover - good thing, it was getting harder to resist each time I looked at it!

Of course, now that I've seen those Luxe Baby sets I have a whole new temptation to attempt to resist
