I'm a sucker for baby hats.

Saturday, August 9, 2008

My daughter Eleanore was born in the summer, in Texas no less, so she only had a couple of baby hats for her tiny newborn head. The one from the hospital, and one that we were given from a Woman's Resource Center when we found out we were pregnant. As winter got closer, we weren't in the habit of wearing hats, or headbands, or any other cute head-bound accessories (so when we'd put them on her, she'd take them off). We had a few, made by friends and family members, but she really didn't like to wear them. I'm not a hat person either really, mostly because they make my face look even more chubby than it already is, but on occasion I'll snuggle my head inside of one for winter survivals sake. Lately I'm under the impression that I'll be having a baby boy this December. A winter baby. A Christmas baby even. I haven't been able to control myself from browsing the pages of Etsy looking for adorable little mister hats for my Charlie to be. I've decided that this style is my absolute favorite...

I agree he needs one. Will you name him Charlie or is that just his temporary name?

Christopher And Tia August 10, 2008 at 2:01 PM  

I think our hearts are pretty set on the name Charlie, as a permanent name. We haven't come accross another name that makes us say "awww" yet :)

Those hats are so cute! Your little guy will look fantastic in one.

Oh, the fun things we can do to little people!

(PS My daughter Kaya is a December baby, she'll be 2 this year on the 4th.)
