My niece, Ashley, turned one on Friday–I only have one neice, and one nephew, Ashley’s big brother Blake so, they are pretty special to me. Today we are celebrating Ashley’s 1st b-day along with my brother who had a birthday yesterday. My sister was somewhat specifically vague about gift ideas for Ashley–“she doesn’t really need any toys & we don’t really have a lot of extra room for things….”—hmmmm…kinda left me wondering what might be the perfect gift. I’ve talked about my niece before—lovingly called “potsy” because of her cute little pot belly (and pot cheeks as Chloe calls them)—the girl loves her food…seriously….she ate half a sandwich on our picnic last week(and not just a sandwich she ate other stuff too—I was just amazed she ate a sandwich)—my girls couldn’t even finish a couple crackers and cheese. And no way were they downing sandwiches before a year….she’s really quite amazing. =)
The hubster and I talked about giving her a gift card to my sis’s fave grocery shopping spot….we figured she goes thru quite a bit of food….but, you know how sisters are, I’m not sure she would have exactly appreciated that gift. =p So, I decided to make little miss Ashley a cute little appliqued top.
I think it’ll work nicely. =p
