I hope wherever you go and whatever you do,
You challenge the world, and adventure finds you.
Sharing Miss Sophie’s summer fashion adventures with her new bestie, Buddy Bear. Created just for Sophie by the talented Tammy Minimo Peeps Photography and illustrator Joe Baker. And we love Buddy Bear to bits!
You make me laugh.
You let me shine.
You are my forever buddy.
That never leaves me behind.
I wear socks with sandals.
Gumboots in summer.
Clash patterns with colours.
And it does not matter.
For there is no limit, you say.
Trust your beautiful heart.
Share your kindness.
And your imagination will take you far away.
“Happy Happy B I R T H D A Y Eva Dear. Happy days will come to you all year. If I had a wish , that wish would be …. A very Happy Birthday to you from me!”
#ExtracuteEva just turned S I X ! What is this girl all about? Bunk beds, dolls , books , her very special chalkboard wallpaper, traveling and Hello Kitty. This cutie has more than an extra chromosome, she has spunk + MOXIE ! We decided to create a room for Eva that plays to her strengths, her talents, fosters creativity and is filled with all of her favorite things. Last winter, Eva was hospitalized for a few weeks with Pneumonia. At the time, Eva was sharing a room with her little sister Elsie. It wasn’t until the two were separated (during this time) that we noticed a huge personality difference in the girls. Eva, being alone with one of us at the hospital became a little more confident, overly funny and goofy! A side to her we had never seen before. Elsie became more independent around the house, and didn’t go out of her way to get attention. Now don’t get me wrong, these two are very close as sisters, at times inseparable. It became clear that Eva ( being the older sister) needed her own space and her own room. That’s when we started planning moving Ethan out of his nursery and moving him in with Elsie, giving Eva her own room.
It took a little over a year to get Eva’s room just right. She had been in a larger toddler bed and with her growing legs, it became necessary that we look into bigger beds for Eva. This past Christmas, we visited Grandma + Grandpa in South Carolina. They had set up some old Bunk Beds in the spare room for the kids to sleep on. We were certain that Elsie would be the first one to the top, but she wanted nothing to do with the bunk beds. To our surprise, Eva climbed right on up and slept on the top bunk the whole vacation and then took it over again for Easter break. She loved being up there, and her confidence shined as she knew her usually adventurous little sister didn’t want to climb up. We decided, Birthday Bunk Beds for Eva! We not only found a new-in-the-box pink bunk bed set on Facebook Marketplace ( for under $100 ! ), but a similar mini bunk bed set for her dolls ( also found on Facebook Marketplace). These bunk beds would be the perfect birthday gift for Eva’s 6th birthday, and the final touches on her new big girl room. A special room for a very unique little girl.

With crib sheets from Rookie Humans, every sheet is a backdrop to a delightful story, and every baby is the protagonist. “Why aren’t crib sheets designed in a more imaginative way?

Wonderfully Made Clothing Co. is in the Babiekins spotlight this week! We are thrilled to share a special interview with Andrea Edmonds, founder of Wonderfully Made Clothing Co. a new brand that shares our love of INCLUSION in the fashion industry.
Here at Bakiekins Magzine , inclusion in children’s fashion industry is very important to us. We believe that children of all ethnicity, shapes , sizes , and different abilities have a very important place in fashion, the arts, entertainment, and in media. We get to know Andrea better and learn more about the inspiration behind her brand, Wonderfully Made.
ANDREA EDMONDS || Founder and Creator of Wonderfully Made Clothing Co.-
Andrea , what was your inspiration behind Wonderfully Made Clothing Co.?
“I started Wonderfully Made Clothing Co. because of the clothing challenge that my daughter faced. She began sizing out of our favorite lines at an early age, and her clothing options were very limited. I wanted her to look age appropriate and not have to jump into adult sizing in elementary school. I soon realized that other girls shared Ruthie’s struggle and that there is a void in the market for quality clothing in our size niche.Our name, Wonderfully Made Clothing Co. and our crown logo define our brand. My daughter Ruthie has Down syndrome. When she was born and the nurse placed her in my arms, I thought about Psalm 139:14…for you are fearfully and wonderfully made. I knew that she was “wonderfully made” regardless of a diagnosis. She was our perfect baby girl, and I prayed that she would know that she is wonderfully made just as all children are. Our crown serves as a reminder to all girls that our identity isn’t found in what our culture defines as perfection but it is rooted in God’s image of perfection, which is ALL girls regardless of size or any other outward characteristic. It’s up to us adults to reflect which image of perfection they see.
Our sizing is unique because it works for most body types. Our fit is more generous, so some girls have to size down a couple of sizes. We’ve worked hard to create sizing that allows all girls to have access to quality clothing that is age appropriate.
What makes your clothing so unique for young girls of all abilities?
“Our designs, fit and fabrics give girls clothing that they can feel confident in. Before I started our line, I would have to put double layers under Ruthie’s clothing because most of the knits were too thin. She was so uncomfortable. Our knits are the perfect weight, and they are so soft. Our pieces were created to be versatile and to last through many occasions. Both the woven collection as well as the knit collection transition easily through the seasons by adding a long sleeve on cooler days. They are also easily paired with both shorts and leggings.”
How do you hope your clothing line changes the Children’s Fashion Industry?
“I hope Wonderfully Made Clothing Co. will make all girls visible to the fashion industry. Most of the girls we see as brand reps and in advertising have similar body types because most children/tween clothing lines do not accommodate all girls. We are seeing a greater push towards inclusive advertising, but this doesn’t always represent all body types. We are all shaped differently. Some girls face challenges because of a medical diagnosis that slows down their metabolism, or they may simply be going through a growth spurt. Wonderfully Made Clothing Co. fills a void in the fashion industry by creating designs in fresh sizing that works for all girls.” – Andrea Edmonds . Founder/Creator of Wonderfully Made Co.
