Gray baby shorts and suspenders

Baby Suspenders Gray Outfit by One Small Child

Could there be anything more charming that a bowtie on your little Mr.?  The answer…YES!  Our newest One Small Child design combines the timeless bowtie with adorable black baby suspenders. The result is too cute for words!  But we couldn’t stop there, we had to add cashmere-soft slack style shorts. This look will have everyone pulling their cameras out to capture the adorableness.

Cute + Great Features Too!

The short sleeved 100% cotton shirt was designed to be a bodysuit style.  Not only does this look great but you never have to worry about baby coming untucked as he is passed around and loved on.  Plus, the three snaps make diaper changes a breeze.  You get your choice of a classic bowtie or a “big boy” neck tie.  The best part is, they are removable making

The stylish black suspenders are elastic and adjustable.  This means the cuteness doesn’t have to stop when he grows.  Just make them longer and he is ready to wear them for future events.  You get your choice of a classic bowtie or a “big boy” neck tie.  The best part is, they are removable making

And last, but certainly not least, you get your choice of a classic bowtie or a “big boy” neck tie.  The best part is, both are removable!

Accessories

Did we mention the accessories that are available for this darling outfit?  We have a newsboy’s cap that is a perfect match, not to mention it ups the handsome factor!

Next are the matching shoes.  They are made from the same fabric as the tie, shorts, and cap.  A large strap crosses the foot and is secured with an exaggerated black button.  The soles are made of soft black leather to accommodate unsteady walkers.  The insides are fully lined with a soft satin for supreme comfort.

If you are looking for a more formal attire check out our Derek 5-piece suit.  It is great for winter events while our Gray Suspender Outfit is great for warmer ones.

Amy Short Christening Dress by One Small Child

 

Blessing Dress Details:

A 100% sheer lattice, polyester dress delicately overlays a soft 100% cotton slip.  Flower-vine details float atop the bodice lattice and skirt edge.  Perfectly scrunched lace wraps each sleeve in pure sweetness.  The white satin-ribbon sash makes getting that perfect fit a breeze.  (Ever wondered how to tie a dress sash into a perfect bow?  Check out our Facebook page for a tutorial.)

A matching headband pulls this quaint little dress altogether.  Soft elastic is attached to more flower-vine goodness, while an off-centered satin bow adds that “little something extra”.

Accessories:

Every mom wants their little one’s day to be memorable.  Let us help with our many accessories and embroidery options.  Listed below are some must-haves to create a notable and hassle-free day.

  • Camisole Onsie – not only do these hold baby’s diaper firmly in place during the ceremony, they are great for everyday use (get more and save with our 3-pack).  Have her initials monogrammed on the chest for a personal touch.
  • Cotton Diaper Cover – dainty satin-ribbon bows and cotton ruffles adorn the  legs.  And what could be more adorable than a cross, shamrock, or baby’s name embroidered on the bum!
  • Floral Initial Ruffle Bib – keep her dress pristine with a bib that looks as pretty as the dress.  The floral embroidery detail compliment the dress and the flourish initial makes it custom just for her.
  • Silver & Pearl Name Bracelet – divine fresh-water pearls and sterling silver beads encircle baby’s name, spelled in sterling silver letter blocks.  Add a cross charm and/or birthstone crystal to sparkle on her tiny wrist. Finally, a half-inch silver chain enables the bracelet to adjust for a lasting fit.

Have any embroidery done in your choice of white, baby pink, soft green, metallic gold, or silver thread.  White thread offers a subtle look, pink or green enhances her small features, while metallic gold and silver create a timeless feel.

Baby's First Easter Ideas from One Small Child

Baby’s First Easter Ideas from One Small Child

Looking for some fun ways to celebrate with your little one this year? The crazy Easter egg hunts and egg-dying are still a ways down the road for your tiny tot. That doesn’t mean your snuggle bunny has to miss out on all the fun. Here are some baby-approved activities that will add delight to his first Easter holiday. Take a look at these creative baby’s first Easter ideas.

Baby's First Easter Ideas from One Small Child

For the littlest of littles:

Dress your precious little one up in a new dress or outfit. One of the funnest things to do with new young babies is dress them up! Aren’t holidays great excuses to put on something cute and fancy? Check out our adorable holiday outfits for boys and dresses for girls.

Put together an at-home photo shoot. You’ll want to remember all of baby’s firsts-including his first Easter holiday. There are so many props and poses you can use. Scatter Easter eggs, put baby in a large Easter basket, get a snapshot of her in a pretty tutu and bunny ears. Get creative! The possibilities are endless.

Do a fun Easter craft. Who doesn’t love baby foot and handprints? Drag out some paint and stamp baby’s little limbs on some thick paper or canvas. You can even decorate them to make Easter-related pictures.

Make Easter egg shakers. Little ones love rattles! Why not make a fun holiday shaker out of a plastic Easter egg and whatever you have in your cupboard? Rice, dried beans, and popcorn kernels make awesome noise makers. Just be sure to seal the egg well and test it before passing it off to your little guy.

For Mobile Babies:

Egg hunt in a kiddie pool. Fill a kiddie pool with Easter grass. (You can even make your own by shredding paper). Scatter plastic eggs inside and mix it all up. Baby will have so much fun crawling through the ‘grass’ looking for eggs. With a big enough pool, you could even invite his playmates over to join in the fun!

Egg scoop. Fill a large bowl with plastic eggs. Add a spoon that’s large enough to scoop the eggs well. Your little one will love emptying the bowl over and over again.

Have an Easter Egg bubble bath. Float some plastic eggs in the tub for a fun new bath time toy. To make it extra fun, add bubbles and extra rubber duckies!

Teach baby a fun Easter song. Remember your mom singing ‘Here Comes Peter Cottontail’ when you were a kid? Warm up your singing voice and belt it to your babe. It may be awkward for you, but she’ll love it!

Make egg popsicles. Fill a couple plastic eggs with a yummy puree for your little one. No need to be unhealthy. Baby food freezes just fine! We recommend using eggs with a small hole in the top for ease. Fill the egg using a syringe and top it off with a sucker stick. Your older kids will love these too!

Any other ideas? We’d love to hear how you celebrated baby’s first Easter.

I love the idea of growing our own Easter grass. I know my kids would enjoy watering it every day and watching it grow. …And wouldn’t it be fun to decorate with? Here’s a great tutorial from How Does She?.

These cascarones look like so much fun! I know I’d be in for a mess, but the kids would have a blast making and breaking them. Mom.me has a great picture tutorial on how to make these.

I really enjoy doing fun service activities as a family. I think it’s important to incorporate service into our family time. Especially around holidays. I love the idea of ‘egg’ing someone for Easter! I’ve seen several variations of this: scatter treat-filled eggs in their yard and leave the sign on their door; leave a basket of candy-filled eggs; or my favorite-put together a simple plate of home-made Easter treats and do the ring and run. This activity offers extra family time since we’ll make the treats together. Family Ever After has a cute “You’ve Been Egged” free printable.

Family Easter Traditions 2015

Mom Talk: Family Easter Traditions

Holidays are a great time to get everyone together and share in family traditions. We love to hear how different families celebrate. So, today we’re sharing some family Easter traditions from a few local moms.

Family Easter Traditions 2015

SueAnn:

We have a big family and every year we get together on the river bottoms and have a big Easter egg hunt for the kids. The teenagers get to find a bag filled with candy. They love it because they get to feel like they are not a child anymore but they still get the thrill of hunting for something.  We always have an open-pit fire so everyone can roast a hot dog for lunch and there is always good food to go with them.  Then we get to visit with each other and catch up on what is happening in each of our lives.  This is a great time for everyone and the kids especially look forward to it.

Katy:

I like to split the Easter holiday into two days.  We try to do the Easter Bunny activities, which include egg hunts, candy and fun activities on Saturday. My favorite thing the Easter bunny gives the littles are a new Sunday church outfit. Maybe a dress shirt for the boys and a dress for the girls. We often are given a book about Christ for the littles to read as well.

We reserve Sunday for more religious events.  We want Sunday to be Christ-centered. We talk about the Savior and how important He is in our lives and that He rose from the dead that day. This year, I want to try this Easter activity centered on Jesus.

Bethany:

Growing up my Mom always made Egg Asparagus Casserole on Easter. She would just use sliced bread, nothing fancy, and dry it out a little in the oven. Then we would have to count all the eggs and make sure we found them all because my Mom made sure that there was a enough for the casserole. If there were cracked eggs the coloring would soak through, and we had multi-colored casserole.

For my little family, we stay in Blackfoot for a city hunt and support the activities where we live.

Samantha:

I have the fun opportunity to start Easter traditions with my little family this year. My daughter is just over and year and we’re expecting a son just after Easter. I want family traditions to be a big part of their lives, so I’ve put a lot of thought into how we celebrate holidays now.

I know my little girl will love hunting for Easter eggs and we’ll probably let her indulge in some treats. I adored the gift baskets the Easter bunny brought to me as a child and plan to carrying on that tradition on as well. I hope to do the egg hunt and bunny basket on the Saturday before Easter Sunday so that we can have a more religious celebration on the Sabbath. I fell in love with this idea from Your Home-based Mom. You read the Easter story from the bible with fun trinkets that help you remember it. I especially love this for little kids.

As a child, I always got a new dress to wear to church on Easter Sunday. I loved getting all dressed up in something new. I hope my kids will love these traditions as much as I did when I was a child.

Share with us! We’d love to hear your family Easter traditions!
