For John and Lucy, having Sam after 5 years of marriage was a real blessing. The first time parents couldn’t simply take their eyes away from their little one. They marveled at their bundle of love and joy. As with normal newborns, her head is relatively small. She has a cute nose very much like her mom’s.
For a first time aunt like me, I fussed at what to give Sam, a welcome-to-the-family token. She already has many baby clothes her proud parents purchased. After some deliberation, I decided on baby hats. A hat will provide her head protection from the cold December temperature. At the same time, when fully wrapped up, a hat will all be visible on the baby. I took my time on a store specializing on baby items. I was amazed at the variety of hats sold. They come in a wide range of texture, color, size and shape. Baby hats before were of different make. Ah, how time swiftly passed.
I bought more than a dozen hats. There are small ones, medium, and big ones. Each one is different from the other. She has a hat for different occasions. Her hats will take care of her head gear needs until she’s maybe 3 or 4 years old. I particularly liked the pink knit baby hat with a small yellow butterfly. I have always been fascinated by butterflies. I also liked a cottony brimmed hat that could be tied under the chin.
I went out of the department store with 2 large paper bags of aunt’s best choice for the cutest niece in the world.
