Last Minute Baby Gift

I am amazed at how often I find myself making last minute baby gifts; I mean I should have 9 months, right? Well if you only speak to old friends once or twice a year then it happens more often then not.

A friend from college just sent me beautiful pictures of her newborn son. We don’t speak that often but she is certainly someone special and dear to me that I would make something for, so I give you the last minute baby gift.

Because I have scrambled more then once for a nice little gift I now keep blank onsies on hand, washed and ready to stencil. For baby Jake a little 3 pack of a moose, bugs, and dragonflies. Don’t be impressed unless I can make it to the post office before he starts preschool!

See now, you just posted those to make me drool. Yep, Milo just kicked me to really make it clear how cute he thinks those onesies are.

Alex is still wearing his at 18 months. The onesies stretch a lot and they haven't faded at all. I will be sad when he finally outgrows them.

You might talk me into Big Boy shirts

Really? That would be very cool. I would even buy the shirts. But don't feel you have to. Do it only if you would enjoy doing it.

As a Mainer and godmother of seven, I'd like to see a set of onesies with Maine-inspired designs: start w/ the moose, then go to a lobster, pine-tree, ocean wave, kayak, rowboat, sailboat, seashell...

Great blog!
