Reusing our Baby Sign

January 9, 2018

As I mentioned on the last post, I envisioned many ways I could reuse the basswood sign I created for the weeks countdown.


Now that our little one is almost 5 months (where did the time go?!) I wanted to still use the sign, but to have it say something else.


Instead of relying on photoshop to add the number like I've done with her weeks sign, I painted over the word weeks and kept the wreath. I've also added a 1st inside the week, to mark all the milestones not available on the stickers we have at home - pretty much all her 1st holidays, etc.




We started off with her 1st Halloween. We dressed her in this cute Jack-o'-Lantern onesie that was super comfy for her and warm enough for her to spend her day in the daycare. Of course as soon as I got home little one decided to have an accident. 


Fast forward to the weekend, when I dressed her up again just for these photos (poor child). But she looked too adorable not to have a decent record of it on file. 


Safe to say, as soon as she was down for her nap, I repainted the sign again, and already wrote down thanksgiving on it. I love how easy it is to switch things around. You can even use water to get most of the chalk out. I'm just weary of it 'cause I don't want to mess up the rest of the design, but I may try to do that for Christmas.
