My mom is the best.
She saved a bag of baby clothes from both me and my brother. Just her favourite outfits and special outfits, but I am LOVING it. Since this baby is a boy, my brother was nice enough to allow my mom to “lend” me the baby clothes. They are so cute…and some so 80’s.
She also saved all our stuffed animals! Only 3 of mine were boy appropriate. First we have Mr. Wrinkles the Elephant puppet.
|Please ignore his squished face, he’s spent years in a box and then he was shoved into a suitcase. Poor guy.|
Next, My Dino. This Dino was hand made by my Nana (dad’s mom). She made us so many stuffed animals! I have a million dolls by her and I can’t wait to give them to my future daughters.
Then, my all time favourite made by Nana: the monkey. I don’t know if he had a name or not. He is all elastic bands and stuffed rings of material. He won the award for most creative pet in one of my classes. As you can see, he was well loved and he needs a bit of fixing.
On to the clothes! I love this outfit because I remember it on my brother. So cute!
My mom used to make me a Christmas Dress each year, and my brother would get a matching vest. Here is an example, but I have 3 of them now!
How cute is this?
|Again, it’s all winkled from years of storage and I’m too lazy to iron it since I’ll be washing it soon anyways.|
I also brought back 2 blankets. This one was mine. My mom used to be a hairdresser and one of her clients made it for me. It’s so detailed and beautiful!
This was my brother’s! I don’t remember who made it.
And last but not least…the most 80’s shirt I’ve ever see.
That is just a small selection. I am really sentimental and to have all these things make me so happy! Henry is a lucky guy!
