About Little Ones Love
Angela Kroeger, owner with family
Little Ones Love's hats are made at home in our little studio.
Hi there! I'm Angela and I couldn't be more excited that you're here. See, in addition to being the owner of this shop, I'm a Mom. And - amiright - being a Mom is a reeeaally tricky, hard job! I know what it's like to be there, just a few days home from the hospital, desperately trying to make your life and this new little life work together.
One of the most difficult experiences of my life was the exhaustion just after my third baby was born. A neighbor stopped by to coo over baby and congratulate us. As I stood there, just dead-tired from all the sleepless nights, I suddenly realized she was talking to me, asking me what the baby's name was. And from the depths of my bone-tired lil’ mama heart, I just cried out, "I can’t remember!"
I have never felt so lost in my life.
I joke now that I put names of babies on hats for those Moms who forget their babies’ names... and after my husband looks horrified once more (men will never understand), we both giggle a bit. ♥
What once was a joke about a name has turned into a passion project, my life's mission, and the calling I never knew I always had. I love creating heirloom-quality pieces that your little one will LOVE and TREASURE long after their little head fits in that hat. I like to think I'm helping you preserve a piece of your life you'll never get back. A memory that you and your baby will share for your whole lives.
Confession: one of my customers recently told me she bought a hat simply to capture her little boy's 'newborn head smell' - and I was jealous I hadn't thought of that before... with all there is to learn about being a new mother, treasuring your little one is the easiest. I'd love to help you do just that. ♥
