Elliot's not going to be able to wear clothes until after he recovers from his surgery and is off breathing support. They expect him to spend the first 3-4 weeks of his life practically naked?! No, that just won't do!
I've been mulling over this idea for a couple weeks now, but I wasn't sure how to get it started.
So, here it goes: I challenge you to help me collect hats for Elliot.
How? Together, we can scour the web for cute preemie or newborn sized hats. If you find any, leave me the link in a comment or email. Or, if you are crafty and would like to sew/knit a few, I'd love it! :) Also, if you feel so inclined to donate hats, that would be great too!
I'll probably post new hats every week. And once Elliot is born, his daily NICU updates will always feature pictures of him in his hats.
The Goal: I'd like to eventually have a hat for every day that Elliot spends in the NICU. That might sound like an impossible goal but, hey, who knows? It could happen.
Here is the very first hat of the collection. I got it from Sally Ann's. I couldn't be happier. It's cute, well-made, and it shipped mere days after I ordered it. In fact, I'll probably order some more in different colors!
