"We're having a baby?!" were the words of my husband the night I told him. He came home to my computer playing lullaby tunes on Spotify and a goodie bag filled with baby clues.
Surprisingly, Jake didn't see the gift bag but was baffled at the sound the computer was playing. He opens the screen to see a background that said, "Congratulations, Daddy!" At first he thought it was sarcasm relating to his wreck earlier that day. Then he catches the gift bag in his sight and opens it to find sugar babies, two pacifiers, two positive tests, and a baby bottle pop.
He was ecstatic and his eyes lit up as he finally put the clues together. All the while I'm balling in the kitchen. What a night!
A week later I went for my first doctor's appointment and I had the privilege of hearing our little one's heartbeat and capturing this peanut picture:
We are very excited and cannot wait to find out what we are having. That will be in March and we're due on July 30th. What an amazing miracle that we have on the way!
Recently, I have finished the giraffe hat that is yet another part of the order for my mother-in-law's photography business.
This pattern has been one of the hardest to finish just because of the two additions - but it's also been the biggest payoff. I mean, how stinkin' adorable is this hat?! I really cannot wait to see these creations on her clients!
I have been hard at work designing the website for my mom who will have great posts coming up soon. She is a jack of all trades to say the least so I'm sure that there will be plenty to suit any and everyone!
I have been working on an order for my mother-in-law for crochet baby beanies for her photography business and this owl beanie is one of seven! You can see her work on Facebook here.
This particular hat has a bow that can be removed and I chose these neutral colors because I knew that Michele would want to be able to use this for both genders.
I found this pattern at Knotty Knotty's blog. I love her site - it's very helpful and has given me great ideas for future projects!
Earlier, I wrote about how I learned to crochet and I'm excited to see how advanced I can get with my stitches. My mom is trying to convince me to start an Etsy and sell my work while I'm in college... I'm still debating the idea!
