in the quiet moments

I've been working on knitting Ian a sweater for the Fall. It's the Classic Cardigan (I'm thinking that a cardigan will be easier to put on him than a pull-over style) from Essential Baby, and I'm using a cream colored cotton yarn that used to be a sweater of mine that was always a bit too short.

I'm knitting it up on silky smooth bamboo needles, and the combination of holding the soft cotton, bamboo and baby skin is so relaxing.

drumroll please .........

I'd like to reveal my latest project, one that has been 9 months + in the making:
Ian Andrew is here!!!!

Our little one (he turned out to be not so little at 9lbs 7oz!) finally made his awaited appearance last Tuesday morning.
He is doing quite well, eating and sleeping and enjoying the Moses Basket. He also has a remarkably loud cry (our apologies to the neighbors).

Some of the things I love about him so far:
  • the full head of hair (Emma was nearly bald until she was 6 months, so having an infant with hair is a new experience!)
  • the dimple in the center of his chin (not sure yet what family member that came from)
  • the gassy little half smiles
  • his funny little ears
  • the way he puts his hands over his head when he sleeps
and those are just some starters.

Our little family is getting to know the newest member, resting up from the interrupted nights and loving every minute of it. :) I had almost forgotten how wonderful newborn smells and sounds are .........

Celebrate Dad

Father's Day is June 20th this year. How are you planning to celebrate?

My family usually tried to get up ahead of Dad and make breakfast to serve to him in bed before we all headed out the door for church. Then we'd come home, BBQ a late lunch and take naps in the hammocks afterwards. Or some variation on that theme!
The celebration always included BBQ and an afternoon nap. :)

The BBQ apron in my shop would make a great gift for Dad this year. I'm still looking for something for Emma and Baby#2 to give to John, though (we already have plenty of aprons on hands, since I make them :-).
Have any of you found something for your Dad, or your husband? I'm looking for ideas!

a little something about the shop

Just a friendly little reminder - almost all the stuff I have listed on Etsy is ready made and can be shipped out quickly.  Just so you know. :)
