Why is it that babies have so many hats?

The reason, I suppose, is so that their little heads will be kept snug and warm, and help to regulate their body temperature. But my baby lives in San Diego and happened to be born in August. Other than her 4-day stay in the hospital, she has not really donned a hat. Until last night that is, because, well, because my baby has 25 hats! Yes, 25, and it seems only right that she at least try them on. At least once.

Granted, some of these hats she will wear again -- some to ensure she doesn’t get burned from the sun, and some later on this winter, when the temperature does drop.

But who knows when that will be.

In the mean time, let’s use the hats to give baby added attitude, to let her better express her many looks and multifaceted personality…

For when she's feeling Euro, her oh-so-French, one-of-a-kind (Thank you, Dot!) aubergine number

This one highlights her more girly, Laura Ashley side

And this her tough, urban, more hip-hop-py side (Thanks, Tiff!)

While this one screams, "I want to guest star on PBS's show Arther!"

Hats are terrific for showing holiday spirit

This is, perhaps, my favorite, her winning Snoop Dogg look

Jacques Cousteau?
And lastly, her crazy 1920s flapper look

thanks for the pics Beth! I figured she might fit the hat when she came a little early. Now she can pass it on to Bitty Baby, whose head can be covered even in the beautiful San Diego weather :)
Alex Moore just had twin girls so I need to get the yarn out.

I think babies have hats because adults love how cute they look in them. Awwwwwww how cute!!!

Look at your girl, Beth! I love her; I wish I could scoop her up in person.

She's adorable. And has quite the cranial wardrobe.

I know I am a bit biases as her grandmother, but isn't she adorable!
She is really cute hatless as well.
