knitting for babies

 a few weeks ago, I knitted the vintage pixie hat and mary jane booties for my newest niece, Sophia.
she was born in July, and I had been wanting to send her something, but didn't decide what up until now...


 finally sent them out last weeks and I haven't heard from my sis-in-law that they have received the package yet, 
but I think they will be perfect little cozy things to keep little Sophia warm in Winnipeg fall.
hope she sends me some pictures of her wearing these!

and because I still had the leftover yarn from the projects above, decided to knit my little baby something.
little baby booties!  
it was probably an appropriate sock project for me as I have never knitted socks before 
and to  see if I even like knitting socks. 
the first one took me a little while to get going, 
but the second half went by quickly. 
although I kida liked knitting socks, I don’t think I am ready to knit socks for “big” people…

spilling the beans -long over due

okay, it's way over due to announce this here,
but I am pregnant!
I am not sure how the time went by so quickly this time, but I am almost 21weeks!!
 this is my second pregnancy and it often gets forgotten/ignored when you already have a little one to chase after.
finally, I made a point of taking some photos(first time!) of this pregnancy today.
I need to start documenting it more often since most likely this is going to be my last one.
my almost-three-yr-old girl is very excited to be a big sister, 
and she tells me she can't wait to hold the baby when he/she comes out. very cute :)

although we're not going to find out the sex of the baby until the baby comes out, and my little girl thinks it's a BOY,
I couldn't resist this baby sailor dress when I saw it at a local thrift store...
well, it costs only a few bucks!
also I found these awesome kids wooden clogs at the same store!
not sure who makes them. can't find a tag. perhaps handmade?
they are still too big for the little one. she has a few more years to grow into!
