Or maybe we can, considering how strong her belly-shaking kicks are!
According to all my pregnancy books, Cartoonist Baby is even DREAMING now. Which naturally leads to the question--what do babies dream about?
Probably not patterns and fabric.
And since I abhor an image-free post, here's a picture of one of my favorite outfits I've made for Cartoonist Baby, the Boxing Basquiat baby onesie (review here, for you PR members):
... which is just Kwik Sew 2433 sewn up from one of my husband's favorite (but now too-small) Brooklyn Industries T-shirts that I happened to spy in our massive Goodwill-bound donation pile. The edges are bound with satiny purple FOE (foldover elastic) for a SLIGHT girly touch.
I love this onesie for many reasons:
- The subject. Masheka and I are both artistic and literary types, as you might have guessed. Cartoonist Baby's first name is shared with a famous black woman writer (not sure if I'll be revealing her name on this blog yet, you'll have to guess for now!) and I like that she also has one of our favorite artists, the late great Jean-Michel Basquiat, on her shirt, too!
- The colors. I love wearing pink myself, but why does everything for girls have to be doused in Pepto-Bismol and covered in bows and flowers? I felt like the purple foldover elastic binding I did added just a touch of girly without being overwhelming.
- It reminds me of this photo of my husband as a child... you can see why one of his nicknames was "Rocky"!:
