One Last Project to Share and My Boy

Just days away from my little girlie coming now, and I have not gotten any sewing done! I had so hoped to, but with so much to do and carpal tunnel and knitting just being so much more accessible in my large state...well, it hasn't happened:-( Oh well! I guess I have some sewing projects to work on after she comes(and wont that be fun!?). At least then I will know just how big she really is!

Although I didn't get to my sewing(well, except for the burp cloths), I did get three knitting projects completed :-) Of course, you've seen the slippers and bonnet, but I couldn't resist using up some more of the yarn from the bonnet and making some bootees :-) These are from the same book I made the bonnet from and they were very easy. My troubles really were only from the carpal tunnel issues...a true labor of love!

The bootees were suppose to have little pom poms, but I decided I liked them without better and in this very simple state, they will match well with her bonnet:-) They are the smallest size in the pattern, but look like they should fit a bit larger...good thing if she is as big as they say!

With that, I will put away my knitting needles until later and perhaps work a little on the sewing before Tuesday. Tuesday we go in to meet our new babe and I am looking forward to this day. Now if we can all just get over our colds!

Before I go, I had to share some pictures of my dear little man that will soon look like a giant compared to his little sister:-) I love his smile! Pure joy and love:-)

Liam is an absolute doll and one of the sweetest fellas I know. I may be biased, but still I'll say it;-) He has his moments and well, he is two! But he is gentle, loving and oh so funny at times.

And I do believe we have a budding musician! He loves to play on Fiona's harmonica...and really the music sounds lovely to this mamma's ears:-)

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

I can not believe how much he has grown !! All three of your children are growing up fast.

I can not wait to meet the new little one.

I will be praying for you and Dan on your blessed day.

Please make sure Dan lets us know that you and baby are fine.

Much love,

And those booties are just adorable. :)

What a cutie pie your little man is! He looks very natural with the harmonica. My boys like musical things as well! :)

I am so excited/nervous/eager/anxious for you and know my nerves will be all a jumble on Tuesday. I will be praying for you and rejoicing with you in spirit as you meet your beautiful little girl!

The booties are lovely. The yarn is so pretty!

Liam is adorable. It looks like he's shaping up to be a fine musician! ;)

I can't wait to see pictures of Rowan! My sister-in-law goes in on Tuesday to be induced, so it sounds like it's going to be a busy week for babies! I'll be praying! God bless you and Rowan and all your family!
