By-the-week Growth Onesies for Babies
I’ve received a lot of emails and Facebook messages from people who’d like to know where I bought the weekly onesies I pose Charlie in every week. So many, in fact, that I think it’s about time I write a blog post about it.
They say no idea is original, and while I don’t agree with that (as I’m sure most creative types wouldn’t), I will say that this idea was 100% snagged from someone else. So instead of giving you a step-by-step tutorial, I’ll say this:
- They aren’t onesies, actually! It’s the same white onesie every week, with a new number photoshopped on.
- The idea came from Young House Love, and I put my own twist on it by posing her on the same quilt every week (her head used to be smaller than one of the circles!) and adding weekly highlights.
- The lovely bloggers over at Young House Love wrote a tutorial about how they did it for their baby, and that tutorial can be found here.
- This has been a really, really fun project. I haven’t skipped a week since I started (which unfortunately wasn’t until she was four weeks old), and I plan to stop when she’s a year. At that point, I’m going to make a big Blurb coffee table book for us, plus one for her godmother and each set of grandparents.
Seriously, this project has been super fun – I highly recommend you try it yourself! And if you don’t think you have the dedication to do it every week, try it for each month. :)
