Matilda Rooftops: Style Icon (3-6 month edition)

Matilda Rooftops: Style Icon (3-6 month edition) - Unicorn Babygrow

Matilda is seventeen weeks old today. In official terms, that makes her four months old. In clothing terms, last week she (largely) moved into her 6-9 month wardrobe.

She's a tall baby; she's on the 91st centile (which, for those of you who don't speak Baby, means that if 100 baby girls were lined up in order of height, only nine of them would be taller than her). Still. It seems crazy that she's out of her 3-6 month clothes already.

We weren't ready to part with them. They were all so cute.

I wish I'd remembered to photograph her in them all. But I didn't.

So indulge me while I go through (what I have of) her 3-6 month outfit greatest hits.

Matilda Rooftops: Style Icon (3-6 month edition) - Superman Outfit
Matilda wears: Muslin - Faye and Lou (I never thought I would rave about muslins but we were given a pack of these and they are AWESOME); Superman vest - Marks & Spencer (DC Comics 4 pack); Leggings - Sainsburys; Socks - Think my mum bought them in a supermarket but I'm not sure which one.

Matilda Rooftops: Style Icon (3-6 month edition) - Motorhead outfit
Matilda wears: Motörhead vest - bought from Amazon but available elsewhere, too; Leggings - M&Co (two part outfit - see cat jumper below); Rattle socks - These were a gift but I've seen them in TK Maxx.


The DC comics and Motörhead vests were the first things Steve bought for Matilda. Long before she was born, we knew those two photos were going to be taken; there is another of her in a Flash vest with all her limbs ablur.

For the most part, we dressed Matilda in a vest and leggings this summer. They kept her covered up when we were out and about in the sunshine/wind but also let her move around more than dresses did.

That said, she had some gorgeous frocks (has, in fact, as most of them still fit her) - no vaguely special occasion passed without me putting her in something pretty.

More witterings: Cute clothes are not the only good thing about babies, there's nothing wrong with selfie sticks and that time Elise and I photographed lots of old buildings in Dundee (we're meeting up again tomorrow and I can hardly wait!!!!)
