Thanks guys!

I have to say, it's the relative size of the baby that does it.  We cosleep with ours and still have a pretty great um, private life, but if any of that led to such a giant baby I'd be terrified too!

When working this out I decided the baby really had to be big.......if it weren't it would just be a baby crawling on the floor and wouldn't make any sense, or the meaning would be a little fuzzy.  I also had to make him crying because what is worse than a screaming baby?  I can't think of anything.  I added the pointy teeth for those who love babies...........can you say breast feeding nightmare?

As you probably guessed, I don't like babies.  I'm the oldest of 8 and did more than my share of baby-raising....no thanks.  My parents still wish I'd have grandbabies for them.  Apparently they're not satisfied with the 20 or so grandkids (I've lost count) they already have.  Nope, the only grandkids here will have four legs.....and the only two-legged ones have feathers.

OMG, this is hysterical and brilliant!  You've somehow captured the perfect blend of creepy/cute!  This rocks Cheesy

Wow what a huge amount of work you put into this. I think it's amazing! That baby's face is perfectly scary to me.

Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.

I think that is my nightmare as well!!!  That or like a giant bird or spider!!! It looks awesome!

This is amazing! I love the details of the tiny quilt and the mattress pad and the pillows. I especially love how the sheet is coming off of the mattress a bit, because mine does that ALL the time and it drives me nuts!

And I agree with everyone else who said this is a nightmare of theirs, it's definitely one of mine. The first time I met my boyfriend's grandmother, she told me that she couldn't wait for us to have a bunch of great-grandbabies for her. We've only been dating a few months, are nowhere near marriage, and that scared the crap out of me!

Congrats, this is really well done and I love it!

Looking for extra sock yarn! PM me if you have any you'd like to get rid of! Willing to swap for it!

I love/hate it!
And there's only hate, because this pretty much visualizes my worst nightmare come to life as well.

No kiddles for me, not yet anyway, thanks!
