Before I headed down to Florida, I needed to finish up several projects for my little love, Jack. Both of his parents and several other family members went to FSU so some FSU gear was naturally in order. Just my regular stuff (bib, burpee and diaper and wipes case) but in cute Florida State fabric. He's all set for fall football season in a few weeks.

And of course his capes - a onesie cape and then a larger one for when my little superhero gets big and strong. His auntie wrote him a book (Not just a story but a full fledged book that she illustrated and published. If it ever makes it to mass market, I promise to divulge details!), with Jack the superhero as the main character. The night before his birth she told me about the book and we decided I would make him a coordinating outfit.

On Saturday there was a large "coming out" party for Jack at his grandmother's house and a presentation surprise for Jack and his parents with the book and cape. They were shocked and touched to say the least. Jack's daddy loved the cape so much that I'm thinking of making a daddy size cape and mailing it down to him for Halloween. Don't look at the "J" though- it's all wonky but of course I waited to do this until 10PM the night before my 7AM flight. So I decided a 6 week old tot would likely forgive me for a less than perfect letter or two.

This is the toddler cape. Like the onesie cape, it's backed in red and white polka dots. I'm pretty pleased with how it all turned out. I would change a few things next go-round, but for the most part I think it looks pretty fabu.
