Rhinebeck!

Can you believe I knit a Rhinebeck sweater? OK, fine, it was a baby sweater... But still!
This little lamb seems unimpressed.
Deets:
Debbie Bliss Duffle Coat (Rav link) from Essential Baby (my rav link)
Yarn: Frog Tree Merino.
Needle: Size 6.
Buttons: little wood buttons from MJ Trimmings.
Notes: boy, this yarn sheds. It's a single ply, so I should've known... Well, at least it's super soft. And the halo makes it fuzzy and warm! I just don't like seeing the baby with little bits of yarn in his mouth.

I also managed to make 2 matching Aviatrix hats. (One for Sam, one for a faraway friend).
I like that this hat has a tie under the chin, even though Sam likes hats and doesn't take them off. But the best part is that it covers the ears!

Sam is in his oral phase and wants to eat everything. Even the books that I'm reading to him.

There's been some crafting going on...

After Sam got his 2 month shots, he fell asleep for most of the day. I seized this opportunity and made these rompers:
Romper!
I first saw these rompers on Elizabeth's blog, and bought the pattern immediately. That is how cute her daughter is! Of course, it helps that Elizabeth is an impeccable seamstress.
Sam is going to be a ring bearer for his aunt's wedding in 3 weeks, and I want him to wear a seersucker version of these rompers. This was the practice round, and it went pretty well. The pattern is very detailed and easy to follow. I can't wait to dig into that seersucker.

This is not new crafting per se, but my little baby fits into the pyjamas I made when I was pregnant!

and he loves the lobster roll!

Oh, and there's been some knitting going on too... I finished Cherry, at Jillian's suggestion and just need buttons.

2 months already?!

We've been floored by your craftiness and generosity!
Vanessa (Coloursknit) sewed Sam some booties and an adorable bib. The booties make him kick even faster!

Jillian (Sknitty) made Sam the coolest vest. It's got owls all around it! Sam thinks they are delicious.

And the talented Connie designed and knitted a snazzy cardigan. It makes Sam all dreamy eyed...

The countdown is off!

We are incredibly proud and exceedingly happy to introduce you to the most beautiful baby in the world. We have seen many babies, so we are not making this statement lightly. Check it out for yourselves:
In the birthing center
Samuel Elliott was born in the birthing center on Saturday May 9th, 2009 at 5:37AM, just as dawn was breaking and after 10 short hours of labor. He weighed 8 lbs 4 oz and was 20.5 in long.
A few minor health problems necessitated his admission to the NICU, where he spent the first 3 days of his life.
My first mother's day card!
We are now all home and have started the adventure that is our lives as 3 in earnest!
