Our Newest Addition

For those of you who have read my blog to this point know that we were expecting a baby boy.  He came two weeks early and spent 5 days in the NICU, but all is well now and we're so happy to have him with us.  He's a handsome and strong little guy!


His big sister (16 months old) has been wonderful around him - she gives him kisses all the time and points to his ears and nose.  They are the cutest kids ever!


I made a little onsie with a tie for our little boy to wear on Sundays.  What do you think?

Cutest Little Shoes

Over the past 16 months, I've been designing little crocheted shoes for little girls.  This was mainly because I have a little girl, and wanted something way cute and original for her to wear. 

I came up with a few boy's sandals, but now I'm looking for something to make for my newest arrival that he can wear while a newborn in the transition from Winter to Spring.  Here are my top choices from other designers:

Saartje's Bootees

Easy Baby Booties

Magic Slippers

Golden Slippers Baby Booties

 Let me know which are your favorites!  All are free!  Above are knit patterns except for the last ones (Golden Slippers), which are crocheted.  Visit (free to join!) www.Ravlery.com for even more patterns.
