I did these sweet little numbers over a year ago as a gift to my cousin’s wife and her darling little baby girl who was born just a few weeks before Tiny. She has since turned into a vivacious little beauty, that one.
Onesies are the blank canvas of the baby world, and this was a simple yet sweet embellishment. Mini tut: I dyed the onesies along with a cut of eyelet lace in three different hues of Rit dye. Then I zigzagged the lace along the top and side edges to secure. Seemple.
I made a couple of these for my Harpsichord, but I can’t find them!! I must have stuffed them somewhere in the move for safe keeping, but dangitalltohalifax, it was a little too safe.
I have a stack of back-to-school pieces to post about, but I just need to get down and dirty in a photoshoot with the girl! Speaking of Kindergarten Tribe, she needs glasses! We took her into the eye doc today, and I was totally surprised to find out that she’s got pretty bad vision. I’m a little sad about it, but she’s pretty jazzed to wear glasses, so that’s good. I looked into zenni optical and they have some cute ones, but we don’t seem to agree about what’s cute! I think she’d rock some large Zoey D glasses, but she seems to dig anything pink and flowery. Will I be able to let go and let her choose? We’ll see. Any other tips/places to buy frames?
In other body related news, we also found out last week that Tiny is deaf in one ear. The is good and bad news for us. We’ve known for a while that she doesn’t hear well, so it was so great to finally know for sure what is going on, and have a game plan for the future. And she’s got one good ear!! Children with her disorder (auditory neuropath spectrum disorder) usually have it in both ears, so we feel so blessed that she’s got a normal functioning ear. She does often have fluid though, so they said that when she’s had fluid in the past, she’s likely been almost entirely deaf, which has been our impression at times. She has tubes, but it’s seems they’ve been clogged half the time. Anyway, so now we’re starting a new slew of testing, and hopefully we’ll be able to figure a little bit more about her situation. It’s taken a while, but bit by bit I feel like we’re piecing together a puzzle, and every little piece helps clarify the big picture.
