New Obsession.

Since Reed has been born, I have spent HOURS on Etsy looking at all the adorable crochet goodies people are selling and thinking that I REALLY need to try and teach myself how to make these things.

Well I have finally made my first hat. It's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! And as usual, I have made Reed model my new creation. I know that he will be on the move soon and not wanting to sit still for me when the camera comes out, so I'm totally taking advantage of these last few weeks of having an immobile baby. Time for pictures, Reedo. SMILE LIKE YOU MEAN IT!

I'm very excited about all the new crochet projects I have planned in my head!

Remember that blanket I started?

I finally finished it!! I started a baby blanket for Reed weeks ago, but it has been sitting on the back burner for a while since I've been spending all my crafting time making leggings for the shop! I added a satin binding and VOILA! Done!

It's not perfect, but I LOVE how it turned out. The fabric is from scraps left over from some projects I did in his nursery. And I'm pretty sure Reed loves it too, so that's a plus.

And yes, he's wearing Christmas jammies in February. And it looks like he's about to bust out of them, so I think we are going to have to finally retire them. It seems like we are constantly buying the next size up in clothing for him. We can't keep up!! My almost 8-month-old is now in 12-18 month clothing. WHERE DID MY BABY GO?? Someone has replaced him with a toddler! Our little man is super close to taking off and crawling so maybe he will slow down on the growing thing for a while. Oh, how time flies...

SUPER BOWL and a Giveaway!!

So today is the big day. SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!! I have to admit that I'm not the biggest football fan, but I thoroughly enjoy this day every year. The food. Getting together with family. The commercials. Doesn't get much better than that. And this year is a little more special since it's taking place in Indianapolis. I am super proud of my state. Everyone in charge of putting on the Superbowl and all the events that took place this past week in Indianapolis have done SUCH an amazing job. It makes me a little sad that we didn't get a chance to head down the Indy to enjoy any of the festivities. However, just the thought of going into all the chaos with a 7 month old gives me a panic attack. If we are ever lucky enough to get the Superbowl back in Indy again, we will head that way for sure to join in on the fun!

Chad has some money on the Patriots getting the victory, so naturally, I'm rooting for the Giants. GO GIANTS!!! ;)
