The knit part of the gift was this "J" washcloth I turned into a bib by adding cords. The name of the baby is not being announced until he's born, but I know the name, for the soul purpose that I got pregnant before Jenn (who is older than me), and ask me kindly to not name my child the name she had picked out, if it turned out that I was having a boy. I did have a baby boy, 4 and a half months before her son is scheduled to be born (C-Section, Thursday, May 17th, 2007 - the date has officially been announced today at the baby shower) and the name she chose was not on our list of names. But to be sure, she asked me kindly. She's naming her baby boy after someone who was near & dear to her, whom sadly passed away. It's a beautiful name, and I'm sure it will suit the baby boy to be! I do not know what the middle name is, I'm not even sure if the parents have picked it out 100% yet. They still have 11 days! (Unless baby J is born early due to water breaking, etc... before the scheduled C-section (due to baby J being breech).
Here is the items I crafted all packaged up all nice and pretty with a bow! I really hope she liked them (even though she said she did!) I hope she just wasn't being polite. (I am sooo critical of my work!) It's one thing knitting for yourself, it's hard knitting for someone else!
This morning before going to the baby shower, I had Jamie's late grandmother's sister's funeral. Let's just say, it was not a good idea bringing Sean to a funeral home. He decided he was hungry just as everyone was silent (after being a good boy for the longest time) and I had to run out of the room, and feed him outside the services room. I hope no one was looking at me funny, and Jamie realized afterwards that it was not such a good idea bringing Sean. (Which is what I said to begin with!) Anyhow - what can you do? It's over and done with. That'll never happen again. If god forbid, knock on wood, I have another funeral to attend anytime soon or even in the distant future, Sean will stay at home with a babysitter. And if one cannot be found, one of us will stay at home with him.
Sean had a really good time at the baby shower. He hung out with his 9 month old cousin Oliver. Oli was born August 3rd, 2006. Oli kept trying to hug Sean, it was the cutest thing in the world! The two boys were sooo cute together, really! The overalls Sean is wearing in the picture above (you can't really tell) - yeah, let's just say that is the last time he will be wearing those. I swear I thought they fit him when we left the house this morning! Thank goodness I had a change of clothing in my diaper bag.
After a long day - Sean fell asleep for about half an hour at the end of the baby shower. It was a much needed 30 minute nap for him, although I would have preferred it would have been longer than 30 minutes, but there was no where to put him down to sleep.
After the baby shower I went to my parents house for a bit, (and for dinner) and Sean was having fun in the crib at my parents place. Here is an overload of cuteness for you!
Sean started with his RaZberry Teether that I got him. Boy, he's really starting to teeth. He's chewing on everything, including his own hands! (Sucking on them like crazy!)
And while we ate dinner at my parents place, Sean got to amuse himself in this fancy smancy exercauser. It's way more cooler (is that a word?) than the exercauser that I have for him at home. Ahhh - spoiled my grandma & grandpa! Let me tell you! Sean realized tonight for the first time that if he hits the buttons it plays sounds & music. He was having a field day. Of course he kept hitting the same button over and over again, but it's still cute to see his reaction! Oh, he's such a smart little guy!
At three minutes and four seconds after 2 AM on the 6th of May this year (today), the time and date will be 02:03:04 05/06/07. How crazy is that??
For your daily dose of smiles, I'm leaving you with this video.
Hey - I got the reaction out of him I wanted by making them!
He giggles! It's the cutest thing in the world.
I did a little shopping tonight on LittleKnits.com (I've ordered from them before). I think I went a little nuts on the ordering of sock yarn. (Hey it was on sale!) I purchased a ton of Trekking XXL! Colors ordered: 167, 126, 84, 166, 163 & 05. Oh, I can't wait to get them! I'm going to be in sock heaven soon. Owning almost all the colors I've always wanted to own! I can't wait to finish Jamie's married sock, so I can do mine, and then move on to Jaywalkers, and a ton of other socks on my sock knitting wish list! I'd also like to make another pair of Mrs. Hunter's socks, which is in that sock pattern pamphlet I got on Wednesday. As well as a bunch of other socks in that pattern booklet - they're just too nice!
