With no children of her own, Aliya Jiwa started a baby clothing company called the Spunky Stork out of the kitchen of her Manhattan apartment. Yes, thekitchen. Why? In short, she was getting tired of buying pastel-hued, butterfly-slash-teddy bear-riddled baby shower presents for her friends… all of whom are emphatically anti-pastel anything. Two years later, she still has no children, but she quit her job as a hospitality executive and now operates her online organic clothing business in a proper studio. So, what makes a childless, spicy-food eating, cowboy boot-wearing, British Indian an expert on kid’s clothing? Nothing. But visit her site to see her ridiculously adorable designs!

Holiday 2011 Vendor Feature: SEE BABY GROW

A modern take on building a child’s story from birth.

Hello!  I’m Shannon, a wife, mom of a 2yr old little boy, and doggy-mama to two fluffy ankle-biters.  I spent the past 8 years teaching at elementary schools in NY and Florida.  After the birth of my son, I decided to explore some other avenues.

It all began at that awesome moment when my son turned one month old!  I neatly typed up a sign that read: “I am 1 month old!” and placed it next to him while I started snapping away.  This monthly tradition continued throughout his first year of life, as I was blown away at how fast time really does fly.  As he became more mobile, his photo shoots were becoming a bit of a challenge for us.  I knew that there had to be an easier way for parents to document these extraordinary monthly milestones.  Soon after, See Baby Grow, LLC was born.

Our products allow you to track your baby’s growth over their first year of life–right from day one!  While capturing the itty-bitty moments of their life story, memories of a lifetime will be made together.  Our biggest seller has been our monthly onesies, but we have since branched out to beanies, bibs and toddler tees.

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? I LOVE to go to beach with my family.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would love to teach in a foreign country.

What’s your favorite Central Florida attraction/landmark/sight? Lake Eola
