Birth Art, Part I….Custom Onesies!

So what with spending hours a day gazing in wonder at my new boy, not to mention feeding and changing him, I’m a little behind on blogging.  I wanted to share a little of what we were up to in the weeks that we awaited Rio’s birth.  My friends Elysia and Emily threw me a wonderful baby shower.  It was great to have all of the special women in my life in one room at the same time!  Well, at least the ones
who live in Boise.

My favorite part of the shower was making custom onesies for little Rio.  Friends brought blank onesies and fabric paint, and we all got our creative juices flowing!  So far these are my favorite of all Rio’s clothes, and highly recommended as a baby shower activity.  He got lots of veggie-themed ones!

Moms-to-be, i would recommend skipping most of the clothes labeled “newborn” and get “0-3 month” sizes instead.  Especially if you plan on birthing a nine-pounder like Rio.  Sadly a few of his custom onesies are already pretty much too small.
