pint sized finds

it seems like only yesterday that our friends' baby boom of 2008 was in full swing so, to celebrate the arrival of the first year baby luau invites, enjoy a short and sweet roundup of fresh new keiki goodness.

1 - little ones can get a head start on their abc's with little sprouts' alphabet onesie plus remind their 'ohana to take care of the 'aina and "save some for me" compliments of organic keiki.

2 - she may be too tiny to go on the big kid rides but is just the right size for mini eel editions of the honolulu label's stylish jersey knits (available at cupcake).

3 - keiki and young-at-heart grownups will certainly have a crush on berrysprite's irresistibly cute crocheted bear lollipops crafted in a rainbow of colors.

4 - machine machine designer shannon hiramoto first sewed up teeny keiki tunics out of vintage fabric for her niece and now offers the sweet designs in her etsy shop.
