Found in Hope Chest!


Yay! It's time for Friday's Show and Tell again! I wonder what kind of treasures await me today. If you would like to take part in Kelli's weekly Show and Tell, then click here and sign up on

Today, I wanted to show you this cute little tee shirt I came across recently while going through my hope chest. My friend, Connie Padgett, used her computer to make this "iron on" statement. She presented it along with several other pieces of clothing for Baby Shane back in 1997! Here is Shane today holding his tiny little shirt. He thought it was adorable when I showed it to him the other day. You should have heard him cooing and awing over it. It made tears well up in my eyes!


I can't believe he once fit in this!!!

Oh my heart just melted when I saw that pick! Say it isnt so!!! My babies will grow up one day wont they? Love this , too cute!

Kitty said...

That picture says a thousand words... I love it!!! It's precious!!! Isn't it amazing to see how fast they grow. I saved some of my older boys' baby clothes and their little brother wears them now. It is so hard to believe they were ever so little, or that my baby will one day be so big!!!

Oh Pam I love this! How cute. It's so hard to believe that our wee ones grow up:)

Anita said...

Yes, the t-shirt is very cute, indeed! What a nice idea! One of my friends is expecting her second baby in August, it might be a great gift for the newborn saying "I am Erik's little brother (or sister)"

That shirt is so cute. I bet it is hard for him to believe he was ever that little.lol
A great show and tell.

Take care,
Connie
My show and tell is up.

That is a precious picture! Someone made a similar shirt in pink for my daughter when she was born that says, "I drink moo, and then I poo, and that's all I do."

Needless to say she's very embarrassed now when she sees pictures of it. :)
Blessings,
Mrs. C

Oh my, that reminds me of how tiny my daughter was in 1997. She only weighed 4 lbs 8 ozs when she was 2 weeks old and came to live with us straight from the hospital. I was always afraid I would break her, but she's grown into a beautiful young lady. Thank you for sharing and for bringing back that lovely memory.

Thank God for memories. I still have all of my oldest son's Boy Scout merit badges and patches. I enjoy getting them out every so often and just remember.

Jackie said...

LOL...do you mean Mr. Linky??? :)

Myrna said...

I'm back! thanks for coming over to Cherish...

You have a new house--How fun!
I went looking for a fabric sample I thought I had for that couch and love seat in our family room. It wasn't where it should have been. The one for the chair was there and couple of other furniture swatches, but not that one. I thought I could send you a piece if I had it. I'll let you know if I find it. We've had that furniture for several year. I don't know if you could still find it. I'm sure there is something similar out there! We have really enjoyed it. Happy looking!

Julie's Jewels said...

Oh me!!! That is one teenie t-shirt. Its hard to believe any of our kids once wore sizes like that. My youngest girl Michelle swam in preemie size when she was born!!

Ruth said...

LOL!! Too cute! What a great find. It IS hard to believe he fit in that once.

Mishel said...

Too cute!! My kids were always amazed at how tiny their baby clothes were--they just could not imagine that *they* were once so tiny themselves! : )

Happymama said...

That is so precious. I have one of Justin's from when my dad had a lawn service. His business was called "The Mow Man." When they came to visit us in Germany, he brought Justin a onesie that had a little teddy bear on it and mom stitched "Little bitty mow man." Along with it, they brought him a mickey mouse watch so he wouldn't be late for his first job. LOL

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Pam, it made tears well up in my eyes also. I love the picture, What memories and what a show and tell. connie from Texas

groovyoldlady said...

HIHO!! I'm ba-ack! D'ya miss me?

That's a sweet shirt and (sniffle) oh, how they grow (the kids, not the shirts. The shirts only grow if your husband hangs them the wrong way on the clothesline and stretches them all out.)

Oh yes, I am SO back!

Hey. Stop rolling your eyes.
