Day 18 - Baby Fair

There was a free to the public baby fair at the local convention center today. We headed down there in time to be there soon after it opened.

It was ridiculously crowded. Just tons and tons of people there and very slow passage through the "aisles" of booths and tables set up. My claustrophobia started kicking in, and then Cecilia started to become overwhelmed. Poor girl.

It was good to enter all sorts of giveaways and get freebies, but I felt so badly for my poor baby. She's usually so receptive to new people and being out in public, but it was loud and crowded in there, and I'm thinking the combination of both was more than she could handle. Maybe we'll win a giveaway to make up for it. :)

But damned if she isn't the cutest thing ever. One of the booths gave away bucket hats:

edit to add: We actually won, of all things, a diaper cake. ELL OH ELL. But hey, it's cool, I imagine we can find someone who can use the diapers, or if they happen to be size 1, maybe we'll use them at night or something.

Also meant to add that a lot of people, especially the photographers running their booths, were excited about Cecilia's headband and asked me if I would make some for them! So hopefully I'll get some emails for more business. Sweet!


  1. Oh my gosh I just adore that hat!!

  2. That is a cute hat and it's neat that so many people were commenting on the headband. As for the diaper cake, I feel your pain. I was given a diaper cake at my shower made from size 3 disposable diapers even though I'd registered for cloth. Apparently the women who did it figured that we wouldn't stick with the cloth diapers very long...

    Also, Audrey still isn't wearing size 3 diapers (or I think she isn't, I'm not actually sure what size those are...)

  3. We were there, too. Between 11-1pm. I wish I got to look around more but my 3.5 year old had other ideas. I entered a few contest and also found out about a store at Broadway & Craycroft called Nurturing Nature. It's an eco-boutique and they carry cloth diapers and accessories. I haven't checked it out yet, but I plan to :)
