These are my brothers, Onesie New Baby gift . . .


There will soon be a new baby in our family.  
This will be my 5th grandchild.  And the gender is a big secret from all of us.  As you can see my daughter has three small boys (my 4th grandchild is my sons girl)  and this new child will remain unknown until birth.  The baby's brothers want a boy because they need another 'team' member (football, basket ball etc)  but I'm sure if a girl comes along they will love her and  be very protective of her.   
I've been putting a box together of baby gifts, each that I have made over the past several months and this one is special. I wanted to make something for the new child to wear home from the hospital and what better than a onesie with the little ones  brothers on it.  I also have made a layette to go over this onesie (sweater, hat and booties) and will show that another time.
 This project started out giving me trouble.. the parchment paper refused to go through my printer but now I'm glad because I bought some good transfer paper that will stretch with Tee fabric and all I had to do was iron it for about 3 minutes and it is very washable.
I put the words under the photo of the boys
"These are my brothers" and another with the boys and their dad.
I used a 3  month size onesie because my girl is known to have large babies, and then added a 6 month size tee shirt for later. 







 I'm quite excited for the arrival of this new baby.  Being #4 has not gotten lost in the shuffle, everyone is going to welcome her/him as if it's the first, especially (her) brothers.
Did I say that, her?
