23 Funny, Brilliant, Cute, & Awesome Bookish Baby Onesies

Before your kid is old enough to demand to choose his/her own outfit (rain boots, tutu, and cape!) or is stripping off layers and streaking through the house with toddler glee, you get a small window where you get to dress them. During this time you could technically view them as baby billboards if you were to, let’s say, dress them in bookish baby onesies to announce to the world your love of books (hopefully their future love). And be still my bookish heart there are tons to choose from–or, you know, one for every day of the week.
