yesterday, before i went into work, we perused the baby section of our local target. this is what we left with:
i think this is a great contender for her coming home from the hospital outfit! i'm kind of a sucker for giraffes and polka dots, and you rarely see those two together in the wild. plus, it will look great with the hat grammy and poppy got for her.
i now have less than three months to wait until i meet my baby. life is good.
i apologize for my absence the last few days. i've been extremely busy between work and catching up on my sleep. sleeping in until 11 and working from 4pm-midnight isn't really conducive to blogging. i promise we will be back to our regularly scheduled programming soon enough. until then, here is an awfully cute baby wearing an awfully cute hat:
1.) figure out a pattern for this hat:
2.) finish the baby blanket i'm crocheting.
i started this blanket the day we found out about our baby. the first words out of my mouth, after seeing the positive test, were, "i'm going to need more yarn." as soon as this blanket is done, i have another i want to start. i figure a baby can never have too many lovingly made blankets.
3.) start work on the crib mobile. travis and i are collaborating on this one. i'm making the plushies and he's making the cross bar and hanging apparatus. so far my idea is a sun, a cloud, a bird or two, and maybe an umbrella. these will all be made from shades of yellow, orange, aqua, and green felt.
i have some other things to make over the next 6.5 months, but the rest of the list depends on the baby's gender. i plan to make a cloth triangle banner with his/her name to hang on the wall above the crib. something like this:
if i have the time, i would also like to make an appliqued quilt and a dust ruffle for the crib. we'll see.
ok. i think it's pancake time. i had a dream about eating pancakes in disney world the other night. ever since then i have wanted pancakes like crazy. i want to go to disney world, too, but pancakes are more feasible/affordable at the moment. YAY PANCAKES!
