Mad Men or James Bond, you choose

I made this tuxedo bib back in August for a friend's baby.  The little guys aunt got married and he needed to look his best for the occasion, not that he needed any help.  He's one cutie patootie!  It reminds me of a baby James Bond or Don Draper - in a good way. 

As much as I love children I'm not venturing into making children's items.  Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately depending on my mood) there is a proposed law that anything made for children has to undergo strick testing (fireproofing the material, etc) - this will be a huge financial burden to small entrepreneurs.  Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the safety of children but this seems like a LOT of unnecessary red tape that I'm not interested in jumping through.  However if the mood strikes you go ahead and Google CPSIA for more information.  If you are interested in these types of bibs I highly recommend Etsy.com.  Or you could make your own if you're feeling adventerous, they are really easy!

When I got married my nephew was 8 months old and he was so cute.  As I was creating my wedding album there was at one point more pictures of him than my husband.  Not that my husband isn't cute but his cheeks aren't so squishy and he didn't have rolls of baby fat all over him.  Don't you just love that?  Eventually I did reorangize it and my husband is the most pictured male in the album, by 1 picture.  :)
I wonder if this little guys aunt will have the same problem that I did with her pictures.  My guess is yes.
