Res Completa: Buzzbee

After Melynda's sweet post about her baby's knits, I thought I'd revisit one of the little things I made for Daniel before he was born. I don't think I ever posted this one outside of Ravelry, but here is Buzzbee (from Wee Woolly Toppers) the first time I tried it on him:



I remember thinking when I took this picture that he would be teeny forever and there was no way he'd ever grow into this hat. Or, if he did, it was ages away. Yet somehow, in the past 8 months, this happened:



Also, somehow, as an 8 month old, our little rascal is much harder to photograph. LONG gone are the days of propping him up in a chair or posing him while he sleeps. After a series of unsuccessful attempts, I caught the above funny smile midway into a roll to the floor...



...after which he scooted right over to the filing cabinet we still have in his room (leftover from the room's previous life as an office), opened the bottom drawer, and started sorting my tax records.



And after which I had to put the camera down because he went after the fan behind him (a current favorite seems to be attempting to chew on electrical wires).

Anyhoo, this is a great little hat and I like how it turned out in the Swish DK. Nice and warm and squishy, and still washable after Daniel has made an afternoon snack of the chin ties. Now that the weather has cooled down, we're using Buzzbee on a daily basis during our walks. Here we are in action:

Well, you say he's not as easy to photograph, but you've got some very cute pictures there!

first of all, thanks for the shout-out :-). Second- oh my! He's getting so big. And yes, I understand the no taking pictures thing. I do love your solution in the final pic.

I too have an 8 month old that thinks chewing (or trying to) on electrical wires is the funnest thing ever. Glad to see I"m not alone!! Love your blog!!

They do grow too fast, don't they? He's so cute!
I have the same issue with baby picture taking.

very cute hat, and super cute baby! I can't imagine trying to wrangle an 8 month old for a photo shoot, it's all I can do to get an acceptable shot of my dog!
