Baby Week!!!

Oh my gosh, its Monday of baby week. Stephen is being induced on Wednesday at 4am. I hardly slept a wink last night between the excitement, anxiety, heartburn and extreme baby kicks. I guess Stephen is excited too. Chris, on the other hand, was snoring 2 minutes after his head hit the pillow. I bet he was the kind of kid who even slept through the night on Christmas Eve. Not me! And I doubt the next 2 nights (or 18 years for that matter!) will see much sleep. I spent about an hour on Ravelry looking for some easy patterns for the hospital. Anything with little to no counting or shaping or fancy stitches. I'll probably start something this afternoon.

Here is the Baby Kimono I finished for my friend's little girl, Brookelynn. Isn't that the cutest name!! She is 3 months old. I hope it fits. I used Nature's Palette Green Sheep Organic Wool, which you may recognize from Kiki the Kitty, completed last week. This was my second project using only 2 skeins and I STILL have some left over! Great great yarn.Here's my diaper bag- finally finished! I really wanted until the last minute, huh? Amy Butler fabric- LOVE her. There are lots of great pockets inside and the top zips closed. Oh yes, its quite fancy. And its full of wipes, butt creams, diapers and disposable breast pads. Isn't motherhood glamorous?I'll post pictures of the little man as soon as I can. Gammaw is coming to Huntsville on Wednesday. Can't wait!!!

You won't sleep after the 18 years
either. Things will just start
to be hopping. I love your diaper
bag and your little baby kimino.

Your diaper bag is fantastic! And as the mom of a 2 1/2 yr old - be prepared for more than just no sleep!!! You'll worry about everything! Good luck to you and best wishes for both you and the baby!
