Newborn caterpillar photo prop

I’m so in love with this costume! I found it on etsy but asked my mom to make it for me instead!

She can now make things by looking at the picture which is totally awesome!

Our baby will only be a few days old once Halloween comes so thought this caterpillar costume would be perfect and cozy for her 🙂

I can’t wait to see how hers turns out and to put our sweet baby girl in it!

Crochet bear hat

Well we know this winter will be a warm, snuggly, adorable one for the babies!

Mom has made plenty of adorable has for her grandbabies.

Here is a bear hat that she just made for my brother’s soon to be son!

I think this hat is super adorable!!!!

She gets most of her yarn from Joanna fabric and a lot of patterns come from etsy or a google search.

I can’t remember where she said this pattern came from but if you’re interested leave a comment and I’ll be sure to figure it out!

Crib and bedding

We have put the crib together!

We still have a little under three months to have everything ready for Annabella’s arrival so I haven’t started panicking yet.

I love to have everything ready way far in advance so I’m sure I’ll be going crazy soon.

Our son helps time fly by waiting for Annabella’s arrival. I remember waiting for him seemed like forever and now I feel like time is going by too fast.

While we were putting the. Rib together Kyler (our son) tore the styrofoam packing to bits and pieces!!!!! There’s a huge mess but he really enjoyed himself and we got the crib done while laughing at the same time.

We bought the crib bedding from The Land of Nod.

It was a bit pricey but the quality is great and I fell in love with the pattern.

We forgot to buy a mattress the last time we were out so I can’t put the bedding in yet but I will ASAP!

I can’t wait for the room to be finished and ready for our sweet baby girl.

Stuffed bear animal

Mom is knitting these adorable stuffed bears for each of her grandchildren.

She is using alpaca wool that she picked up from a renaissance fair in Virginia which will make for a super soft cuddly gift.

She got the pattern for this from allaboutyou.com.

I asked if it was difficult and she said the pattern had great directions.

She still wants to embroider a face and even knit a little jacket which would be super cute!

It sits about 5″ high so makes a perfect size for little ones!

Good luck if you give it a go!

Newborn diy owl sleep sack

Mom is in baby mode and making lots for little ones arrival!

She’s currently working on a newborn sleep sack which she hasn’t finished yet but the impatient daughter I am wants to share a photo now!

She is also knitting a hat to match!

20120703-131120.jpg

The very top is ribbed followed by a row of adorable owls.

She is thinking of a buttoned bottom. The one she saw on the Internet has a closed bottom but buttons seem more practical and I agree!

You can find the owlie sleep sack and hat pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/owlie-sleep-sack

I hope yours comes out as great as mom’s did!

Newborn photography I like

I’ve been looking up newborn photo ideas and haven’t found the one that screams do this idea but here are a few I like.

20120703-123649.jpg

I like incorporating mom and dads rings with the baby, cute idea!

20120703-123842.jpg

I take back my starting comment… I love this one, it’s so adorable!

20120703-123918.jpg

Our little princess will have her older brother to take photos with as well and these are a few great ideas.

20120703-124018.jpg

I love the baby hammocks, they can be comfortable in the most awkward position and make it look precious.

I’ll update this post once I find more ideas I’m stealing! 🙂

Cupcake newborn photo prop hat

This cupcake hat makes me smile!

It super adorable and I can’t wait to have a princess to wear it!

Mom still needs to add sprinkles but i couldn’t wait to post!

She’s thinking of tiny rosebud flowers that she picked up awhile ago and doesn’t have a use for. I think it’s a perfect idea!

20120701-114013.jpg

Again I bought this pattern from Beezy Mom’s Creations on Etsy.

The yarn was purchased from Joann fabric online using a coupon code!

Hospital attire for delivery

We are due in October and knowing what we are in for the second time around I have outfits for my husband, toddler and I!
This is the gown I wore last time after delivery and will again this time.
Being at the hospital for two days I most definitely don’t want to be stuck in a paper gown!…

I got my husband a pair of I’m the daddy scrubs that are so cute! They can be found online on amazon or directly from their website http://www.daddyscrubs.com they also have other merchandise to chose from that make great personalized gifts!

20120628-123932.jpg
We also got our toddler who will almost be two when the newborn arrives some toddler big brother scrubs. They are so cute and he and daddy will look adorable wearing theirs together. 🙂

I love personalized gifts and it helps daddy and toddler feel more involved.

Owl newborn photo prop hat

This is the first project Mom started on before we even knew if we were having a girl or boy.
As you can tell she was routing for a girl this time since we already have the perfect little boy.
I love this hat, too adorable!
This was one of the more easier patterns then what she’s been doing lately.

We can’t remember what site she found the patten on but here is a link to one that does have some…
