Y’all, everyone I know is having a baby. OK, that’s overstating, but it seems that way when I’m constantly going to this or that baby shower or seeing this or that “we’re expecting” announcement on Facebook and it just FEELS like there’s something in the water in my town. I’m itchin’ for something noteworthy to give to these people, other than another pack of diapers and some crib sheets, yawn. So here are a few bookish baby onesies to give the next future reader in your world:
