Buttons for the Royal Baby

royal baby buttons 002

Hurray for the new baby prince!  Everyone has been waiting and now
he’s here!  William and Kate must be very happy parents.

I thought it would be fun to sort through some buttons for baby and
pretend I’m going to knit him a little royal sweater.  What do you think
I should choose?  What would you choose?

Take a little photo tour to welcome the new little one.

The first is actually a Bakelite napkin ring, but I’m thinking Baby
would like to grab on to it as a toy . . .

    Hurray! I think he would like the little cars and planes, and that stout rocking horse! Plus the giraffe little boy looking up at his Mum … ohhhh, sweet. Now to hear what his name(s) will be.
