Whole Lotta Sylvie - Part 4 Retro Baby

My lovely Sylvie Belle is about to turn 6 months old! I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone...

Sylvie is still a little one for her age and has just crept up to 15lbs now that she is being weaned. I am quite surprised at the amount of food she eats compared to her (rather greedy, it would seem) brothers. Sylvie eats like a bird and takes a long time to do this, the boys would polish off a pot of carrot puree in seconds demanding pudding after that, Sylvie is much more ladylike and takes her time, she then ruins this ladylike behaviour by refusing (just like her brothers) to be cleaned up afterwards.
 'Don't come near me with that wet kitchen roll Woman!!'

Progress-wise Sylvie is rolling over a treat and attempts to sit up from the laying on her back position, she seems confident that this might actually work. Despite the constant rolling she has no interest in actually sitting up alone and if at all possible would like to be carried around 24 hours a day. I have had to re-learn how to do many things one handed.

This Whole Lotta Sylvie post is a Retro special as it features photos of Sylvie wearing some of my own baby dresses from way back in the 1970s. I love the way the dresses are cut into short smock lengths, giving me a perfect chance to team these vintage dresses with Sylvie's bloomers and tights. Love it! Check out the pastel sweet colours too, Sylvie's totally on-trend coveting Meadham Kirchhoff's SS2012 collection, without the big hair and platforms of course...

All images taken by No Debutante.

Little Sylvie doll wearing pink vintage 1970s baby dress (check out the smocking detail!!!) worn with bloomers and spotty tights.

Lemon yellow vintage 1970s dress with lace details.
Sylvie insisted I put a hair clip in her hair.

This has nothing to do with vintage baby clothes, it's just a really sweet picture of Sylvie and her brother Mika playing together one morning.
Despite the tiredness, Life is sweet....
