Weekend Thoughts

As husby is off on another work trip + it being the weekend, I start wondering what it is that I do with myself when I’m the only one home. More than anything else, the result is a lot of cleaning, organizing + thinking about baby. I feel like since husby is only home so often, there is nothing more I want to do when he is around than spend all my time with him. I mean, who wouldn’t?

I finished this cute little basic newborn hat (pattern here) on Friday night. I love the colors pooled in this variegated yarn (Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream in Violet Veil). I’ve found that every newborn hat I’ve knit or crocheted seems like it is going to be too big for a newborn’s head. Or maybe I’m just underestimating the size of a new baby head… I guess I’ll find out soon enough!

Husby is so good at shopping for the baby with me + he even ordered these lovely onsies all on his own:


Very cute + humorous. He is definitely going to be a great father + a protective one at that.

I spent this morning at the pool to soak up some vitamin D for our precious girl. I’ve determined that tanning your back is not easy with a baby bump. After attempting to lay on my stomach for ooooh say, 30 seconds, I realized it just can’t happen. As suggested by my lovely friend, Dawn (also expecting!), looks like I’ll be investing in some type of flotation device to lay on in the pool with my back up towards the sun. Otherwise I will be sporting a very nice half + half look.

On a side note, I love this video! I mean how adorable is an 8 year old girl singing her first metal song? I have our little girl may be attempting this in the future.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far!
