A Baby is Coming…

So, my sister-in-law had her first baby shower this past weekend. It’s so exciting- this is the first baby of my generation in both of our families, if that makes sense. I’m so excited to be an aunt, and have a baby around!

Anyway, for the shower, I devised a plan to give her a set of month-by-month onesies. I don’t know if you’ve seen them on Pinterest, but they’re the onesies that say ‘one month’ and ‘two months’ and so forth, so that you have a onesie for each month, and you take photos so that you can see how the baby grows. Evan has a small uniform and embroidery business, and so I thought he might like to help with this gift.

Onesies1Guys, Ev is such a kind man! I know that he wasn’t into it at first, but after we got started and he kind of saw what we were going for, he seemed happy to make them. He even suggested a newborn one, with the caption on the bottom- he reasoned that newborns stay curled in the fetal position, so the bottom was the best place for it 🙂

When his sister opened the gift and learned that Evan had made each one, she burst into tears…which I took as a sign that she liked them. I think they turned out pretty well! And, of course, I can’t wait to see photos of the baby in each one.
