Zoe's dresser so far... needs another coat!
The finished blanket that I crocheted for Miss Zoe. Decided not to use the 4th color. These colors are not as bright as they seem but had to use my flash for you to even see it so it came out way brighter:
Some cute, funny outfits I found for Zoe the other day. First one says, "I can't wear PINK everyday!" and the second one says, "Does this diaper make my butt look big?" I just can't help myself sometimes...
I haven't washed any baby clothes or things yet. I just put them in the dresser drawers for now. I'd rather wait to do that closer to when it's time for the little one to arrive.
In the next few weeks I'll probably schedule our 3D sonogram. I could find more productive things to spend the money on but seeing as how we have just about everything (other than some WANTS, not necessarily NEEDS) I want to do it. It's a fun tradition we started with Elaina and I want to continue it. How often do you get to glimpse at your sweet baby in the womb and actually see their face as they'll be when they're born?! And life is too short, way too short, to get hung up on practicality (this is coming from Miss Practicality of the World herself... *ahem*... ME). Momma likes to have fun!
Coming Soon... some wall decor that I'm in the process of finishing up for the nursery! Including a how-to for one of them.
Want to learn how to crochet your own baby blanket? It's easy! Check out these YouTube videos for step-by-step directions on a single stitch (the same one I used in the blanket above- note that the needle I used was THICKER. I believe it was size P).
It takes time to learn how to hold the yarn and get the perfect tension, so buy some practice yarn first! Practice yarn should not be as "fluffy" as the yarn I used for the baby blanket. It should be like the yarn in the videos so that you can get used to the steps. Using fluffier yarns can make it more difficult to see what you're doing.
