Year of Violet Update - Cousin Onesies

Today was an exciting day, we too my nephew's newborn photos. They turned out great but I am one exhausted Mama/Auntie. I promise to share the photos with a how-to very soon.
I am sharing the adorable cousin weekly photos we too. How cute are they?!?!
You know what kills me about these pictures? Look at how big the sticker looks on Oliver compared to Violet. They are the same size stickers. Sigh, my girl is growing too fast.
It was pretty easy to make the onesies, I used my favorite Sharpie Stained fabric markers again. I printed out a couple if different fonts to trace and wen from there.
Oh, did I mention that I made these by candlelight while our power was out due to Hurricane Sandy?
I put a piece if cardboard in between the shirt so the marker wouldn't bleed through to the back. I stick my printout under the shirt and start tracing. I find it helpful to also have a printout that I can look at while I am tracing.
I think I did a pretty good job!
Here are the last few weeks of Violet photos. I have a page for them here as well.
Do you have a favorite week?


  1. Oliver is so cute! and tiny next to Violet. What does she think of him? my favorites of Violet (of the ones shown here) are weeks 29 and 32!

  2. Oh so cute, almost makes me want another.....maybe, okay no but they are2 beautiful bulbs

  3. I like all of them but the third one down is my fave. She's looking so sweet at her cousin, and he's got that cute little newborn face. :)

  4. Oh my goodness! How adorable. I can't pick a favourite, they are all too cute. :)

  5. Aww! That's adorable! We did this for my son and our nephew and they're about 7 months apart. They wore the same outfit and we took pictures. It was so funny to see their size difference when they will one day be just about the same!

  6. I <3 the leg warmers!

    Thank you for linking up with Super Sunday Sync this week! Hope to see you next week :)

  7. These pictures are precious! I can't wait to follow along and read more!


  8. Whar cuties. Where did you get the stickers ? My first Grandbaby is due in Dec. and we need these.


  9. I love how they're looking at each other!
