Hello My Name Is Onesies

I made this "Hello my name is" shirt almost a year ago. Hard to believe. Since then, I've been making them as a gifts and I've made a few larger sizes for my son since I love the shirt so so much. Everyone was predicting I was going to have a big baby. Little did they know or I know that I actually had a very small baby (6lbs 9oz).
