I chose one song to sing over and over while Olive was in my belly. This was it, God Made the Sun. I worked at a preschool my entire pregnancy, except the last two weeks or so. We sing this song as a prayer before meals... many others but this one has grown to be my favorite. The only difference is we say amen and dig in at the end. Olive seems to recognize it... or at least I think she does.
Each month for an entire year I will post her doing hand motions and we will watch her learn them by one years old, I am hoping she even sings it! I can't wait to see how she grows and learns.
My Baby'O arrived on August 23, 2012 at 9:49pm. I had been waiting for this lil lady for a long time. I never claimed to hope it was a lil girl but I sure had a ton of vintage and upcycled clothes collected for one. Probably because girls are easier to shop for. I have boys stuff too though. This site is devoted to baby vintage clothes and always longed for a model and now we will be seeing more of that.
How did I come up with her name? Olive Greenly came about because of Circles Are Forever. I hand paint on bottle caps which I call O's ie O'magnet O'button O'sews etc. I needed a name for Baby'O! The most adorable name was Olive... and I like Keith Green a ton so I thought of something like Green which was a name I loved on a soap opra Greenly. It made perfect sense and perfect harmony! This name was made up at least back in 2007 that I can remember. Since then I have seen it around a few places. Which youd think it wasnt around but sure is...
Finally! We get to share Baby'O bka Olive Greenly! She arrived August 23rd and boy were we happy. Alas we get to wear our Everso and Vintage clothes! Let the dress up party begin baby doll!! www.etsy.com/shop/EversoClothing
