I never hear talk of Baa Baa Bottoms anymore. I tried our small on ds yesterday and I love it, it's the cutest thing ever. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> He is 2 wks old, I don't know how much he weighs now, I'm guessing at least 10 lbs. They look like they run big so I thought it'd be awhile before he could wear it, but it fits nicely and still has plenty of room in the thighs and rise, so he'll be able to wear it for awhile.<br><br>
How often does she stock? And does she have an announcement group? I looked at her site, but couldn't find a sign up link for one. I really want another one of these! (Or two!)

She has some great color combos. I had planned on trying one of her soakers, but my dd PT right after I got my first MM <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

BaaBaaBottoms dyes the best yarn in my oppinion! I also loved her cover and her longies are out of this world fantastic (she's also incredibly nice). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Here's her site for those following along: <a href="http://baabaabottoms.wahmweb.com/store/index.asp" target="_blank">http://baabaabottoms.wahmweb.com/store/index.asp</a><br><br>
She's currently moving and plans to stock late June (but we all know how moves go). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
Here are the longies she made for us: <a href="http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334/1865601/3842768/47324477.jpg" target="_blank">http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334...8/47324477.jpg</a><br><br>
Here's some yarn she dyed for me (bottom skein) for my second pair of longies: <a href="http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334/1865601/3879564/55449242.jpg" target="_blank">http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334...4/55449242.jpg</a><br><br>
And this is the yarn she dyed for me so I could have a soaker knitted up: <a href="http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334/1865601/3879564/55647714.jpg" target="_blank">http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334...4/55647714.jpg</a><br><br><br>
Pretty awesome, huh?!

Vanessa is in the process of packing up and moving. So she hasn't been able to get as much knitting done. But I'm sure that her instock store will pick up once she is settled. And Vanessa is super sweet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
And I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> my BaaBaaBottoms. I own 11, yes eleven, of these soakers. These fit my two boys great. I just got finished lanolizing 10 of them today. They are going to Grandma's house for a visit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Well my custom for longies just came up (months ago she had told me it would be late May) and she's using the first colorway on the bottom that I pictured above and solid stripes. I always just ask her to suprise me on the colors but I give he a list of all the soakers I like in her gallery and everytime she's come up with something fabulous! I think allowing her creativity really helps. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
She also dyed this for me for a soaker but ended up dyeing me the last colorway and using this on her daughter but take a look: <a href="http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334/1865601/3879564/55648768.jpg" target="_blank">http://pic10.picturetrail.com/VOL334...4/55648768.jpg</a>

I agree that Vanessa is super sweet. I bought a BBB second hand a while ago and have since lost the drawstring. DS is thinning out and so it was getting kind of big on him. I e-mailed her and asked if she could knit me a replacement. She had it done from me that day and made and mailed it free of charge! Some C/S! And I found out that the saoker I have is one of the first that she made - that made me feel special!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I <b>love</b> my BBB soakers. I have two in the richest colors - Indigo Isles and Desert Turquoise. Vanessa's work is excellent, and she has a great pattern. The soakers work well enough for overnight as well as for daytime. If you ever have teh opportunity to purchase a BBB, jump on it!
