Meet Truman! Our Weekly Kiddo.

This week’s Kiddo is a special little lad. Truman lives in Minneapolis and is the son of my sweet pal Alisha (aka Lishy Loo Vintage!). Lishy has a wonderful eye and her Etsy shop is always brimming with amazing vintage children’s goodies. I love how Lishy dresses Tru in a fun mix of retro treasures and modern day things. So without any further adieu, Ladies and Gentlemen, may we present the Truman Show!

These first few shots are a little older….but we couldn’t resist sharing this vintage cuteness!

Little Truman is such a doll. He is a huge fan of Yo Gabba Gabba, Mary Poppins and dancing to his mommy and daddy’s record collection—vintage Sesame Street and Abba are a family favorite! Tru is an avid reader, just like his mama, and counts Margaret Wise Brown as among his top authors, especially Little Fur Family. Truman also loves kitties, balloons, playing games and laughing at all the silly things his fun lovin’ parents do. We think he is a huge sweetie…I guess I should have called this post Tru Love.

BONUS SHOT! Young Master Harry the younger, wearing a vintage jumpsuit (affectionately called “The Roper”) sourced at Modern Kiddo in our weekly Retro Roundup! Whoo hoo!

This is one stylish family, people! Have a great weekend…

    Um, Lish–can we talk about how badass you are for having a vintage typewriter in your backyard. Seriously, lady!

    my dad took that balloon shot, he is the best photag in the family to be sure.

    i LOVE that typewriter! it’s HEAVY though so i made it a lawn decoration so it didn’t crush one of my kids. truman actually learned his letters by looking at those keys but my neighbor, who is 10, asked “what is this thing?” LOL!!
