Now there's no denying my baby is a genius: Periodically Inspired - Review & Giveaway! CLOSED

Why is there no denying she's a genius? Well, because it says so on her shirt ;)

More than a year ago I expressed my love for the Baby Genius onesies by Periodically Inspired in one of my Geeky Find Friday posts. When your husband is a PhD chemist and you took chemistry for years what seems like forever back in college, you grow to have a certain fondness for the Periodic Table of the Elements and all its "this-stuff-makes-up-everything-in-existence" wonder.

When I saw that Courtney of Periodically Inspired began making toddler genius tees I knew there was one special geeky toddler in my life who absolutely needed to sport one...NOW.

Side note - yes, that's a binky in her mouth. I temporarily gave up.
If you're curious {I know I was}, here are the details:

★ Ge. Germanium is sold commercially in ingot bars that have an internal crystal structure, and is used in light emitting diodes and semiconductors.
★ Ni. Nickel's main form is pure nickel which is sold commercially. A typical use is in electroplating baths, where they are slowly dissolved and redeposited on products. Nickels (five-cent) coins are made of 75% copper. Only 25% is nickel, which makes the name a bit misleading.
★ U. Uranium is used in armor-piercing ammunition and counterweights. Only 20% less radioactive than natural uranium, it creates deadly hazards when used in anger.
★ S. Sulfur is one of the few elements found pure in nature. This "native" sulfur is probably of volcanic origin. Also called brimstone, it oxidizes and is responsible for the characteristic smell of many volcanoes.

The element symbols above, as well as the element names, atomic numbers, and standard atomic weights are screen printed in their own little mini-Periodic Table on Jersey Knit - 100% combed ringspun cotton right next door from us (in Rhode Island).

Okay you can stop taking pictures of me now, Mom. I'm too smart for this.
More about Courtney:
Hello! I'm Courtney and my company is Periodically Inspired™: original designs inspired by Dmitri Mendeleev, the creator of the Periodic Table of Elements! One of the fascinating parts of the Periodic Table Of Elements is that it depicts such order and makes so much sense when not everything else in the world does. There's nothing wrong with making something so practical into something stylish and fun...

Baby genius, periodic table baby
The original Baby Genius Onesie
Periodically Inspired debuted with Baby Genius baby onesies in the late summer of 2010. Since then, I've brought in about 6-7 new designs for youth and adults. I've been working hard to grow the PI brand and I've been meeting some great people along the way! Melissa of Growing Up Geeky is one of those people. She's been a great PI fan and recently outfitted little Carina in a Genius toddler tee. Thank you, Melissa!
