5 days away.

R and I are nearing the end of our pregnancy journey, and I can't believe our Baby C is almost here! I'm feeling an odd mix of pure excitement, and a little sadness at the thought of not being pregnant anymore. But excitement is definitely the overwhelming emotion. I'm ready to get back to sleeping on my back, enjoying lattes, and wearing my old clothes. :) All with a sweet little girl by my side!

Last June, we found out we were expecting... Now we only have 5 days left until our due date. Yowza.

August 2009 - 2 months
October 2009 - 4 months

December 2009 - 6 months

February 2010 - 8 months

February 26, 2010 - 6 days from due date!

When next I see you, little one will be here! Be well!

handmade for baby - part 2

Sorry this post is so long in coming... It has been a busy last few weeks! Thankfully, I am home now, preparing for little one to arrive. It could be any minute now, which I am so excited about I'm beside myself. More on that later...

For now, enjoy the sewing stylings of Janie, Jennie's mom (see post below), who made me this awesome diaper bag. I love how summery it is, and that it's not too large either--perfect for quick trips when I will want to take Just Enough.

Such detail!

I think Janie AND Jennie should have their own crafting blogs to highlight their work; I'm pretty sure they would inspire lotsa women to get crafty. :)

handmade for baby - part 1

Friends and family have made some cool, comfy things for our little one, and I wanted to share them with you. I'm glad baby is due in March, our snowiest month, as she'll have lots of warm blankets and cozy things to curl up with. Above, my friend Danielle knit three adorable bibs! What a fun surprise to find these in our mailbox last night.

Below, a knit hat I received at my shower, from Etsy.com--I love the color, and the beadwork.

My friend Jennie is a master crocheter, and while she is a wonderful teacher and has tried to teach me a few times, I haven't been the best student... (I'm a knitter to the core, I guess!) She made this little blanket that will be easy for baby to tote around with her, or curl up with during a nap--I believe it's made with Homespun yarn, so it's super soft.

She also made this adorable little elephant... I'm loving the purpleness of these gifts...

And speaking of the best color ever, here is a small afghan made by my friend Sara. You may need to click on the pictures to see this yarn a little better--it's lavender tweed that is warm and lovely. Thanks, Sara!
