It feels like this year is on the fast train to Babyville! I can't believe it's already the middle of February and our wee spawn is due to exit his warm womb of a home in a mere 67 days. He's been kicking and hiccuping and poking around in there quite a bit lately, I think he's gonna be a "big 'un"! When I was back in Colorado this past weekend plenty of people commented on how big my belly was.
It's really fun to be "large and in charge"! I weigh more than I ever have and I feel SO happy to be blessed with this miracle inside of me. In crafty news, while in Colorado I made Mo a babyhat out of super soft washable baby yarn:
I used two of my favorite colors, turquoise and gold and plan to use the gold yarn to knit the babyhat with ears next. I can't wait to see this little hat on his head!!!!
I got home from Colorado on Valentine's Day and wouldn't you know it, my Valentine went ALL OUT! Nate made his Pasta Natalio which is the dish he made for me the night he asked me to marry him (aaaawwwww) and spinach salad and baguette with vinaigrette dipping sauce. It was heavenly!
Maybe if we're nice Nate will give us the recipe for this dish, it's made with farfalle pasta, tomatoes, white wine, cream and basil. YUMCITY!
And here's a pic of the sweet fuzzy babies all chilling together on the couch:
They'd better start getting ready to make room for baby! :)
We still don't know where we'll be living when Mo arrives so keep us in your prayers that soon we'll know whether Mo will be a Texan or a Coloradoan! xoxo

I had the house to myself this past weekend while my babydaddy was in Vegas so I tried to make use of the time to be productive and ended up with a couple projects completed but still TONS more I want to do. Thankfully Mo isn't due here for another 76 days (!) so I have plenty of time to make more softies and bibs and most importantly a babyhat with bearcub ears. I did end up making a little babyblanket in monkey print with yellow on the back... and two matching burp cloths:
And then of course I could not neglect The Land of the Bootie so made a second pair of booties for Mo out of the speckly yarn in one size bigger than the first pair. It's just too easy when you can knit up a pair of booties from kick-off to the end of the fourth quarter during the Super Bowl! Here are the two side by side:
That's all I have for now but this weekend I'm blessed to be visiting my family in the Rocky Mountains and plan to spend the time in front of the fireplace knitting and sewing! I'm hoping to have the babyhat knitted up and most of a diaper bag sewn. I'm excited to use the fabrics my brother brought back for me from Togo... Mo will definitely have a one-of-a-kind diaper bag!
Happy February! Spring is almost here!!! Woot to the MAXXXX!!!!
