Cedar Chest of Memories

We inherited Lars' Mom's cedar chest many years ago. She left some of Lars's baby things in there for us to have when we had kids. We sifted through those recently and found some really cute vintage and handmade outfits that Lars wore when he was a baby.

Guest what this is?
It's a homemade Bjorn. Lars' Mom used to make and sell them. I asked her if she had the pattern so I can pass it on to a few friends but she wasn't sure where it ended up.

Modeling with a stuff toy will have to do for now, at least for a few more months :)

There are a ton of other cute clothes and blankets too. I think we might have to reenact some of Lars' old baby photos with our little guy since they will have shared clothing.

Cutest Story ever~When Lars saw the above vest he said that it was what he wore to church every Sunday for years. He was allowed to bring one small toy with him. He looked in the pocket and what did he find...

his one small toy. It was so darling that it was still there after all these years.


  1. I love the idea of reenacting some of those photos with your little boy. That will be so cute!

  2. I love that story (that he found his little toy) - so cute. And the homemade bjorn is sweet!


Say What?
