small style :: summer repeat

at one point during my last pregnancy i thought that i wanted another little girl. how much fun would it be to sew sweet dresses and skirts and create tiny, frilly handknits. but as luca grows i realize how wonderful it worked out that we had another little boy.

i made a bunch of cute little tank tops for harper a couple summers ago. when he outgrew them they were carefully tucked away into luca's dresser. luca has been wearing them nearly every day the past couple months. the tanks are a perfect fit. luca is a perfect fit.

Hand-me-downs are the best. Especially when they are mumma made!

Hand me downs are great. I always tell everyone when I have other one I want a girl so she can wear all of my daughters clothes again.

I have a few things to say about this: 1. OMG Luca is cute. Those eyes!
2. Love the tank tops. Love that you made them. Feeling like I sure wish I could sew.
3. I LOVE the name Luca. When I was pregnant that was my number 1 boy name.
4. There is a town in Italy called Lucca (double c but pronounced the same) and it is gorgeous.
5. I wanted a boy, and got a girl, and it turns out that she is the perfect fit for us. I love that.
