I'm headed away again (with little F). This time to a baby shower in Connecticut. It's unusual for me to leave the farm this much and I find it a bit overwhelming to prep for leaving, even just for a couple of days. But it will be nice to see family and celebrate the upcoming arrival of our first niece on Adam's side of the family.
Months ago, I asked my sister-in-law if there was something I could knit for the baby and she like the idea of a baby sleep sack. It's knitted with Madeline Tosh yarn (so soft and washable, too) and finished it off with some homemade covered buttons. The second picture more accurately shows the purple color.
I sewed up a bib/burpcloth combo, copying a pattern of one my sister made when F was born. And I had to include our favorite board book with the gifts. We love Marla Frazee's illustrations (she also illustrated these favorite books of ours). I love how this book has breast-feeding, baby-wearing, and co-sleeping in it!
As I buzzed around the house today preparing to leave, Adam slaughtered several pigs (among other farm busyness). The day was beautiful and the kids spent hours outside, working and playing.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
