First up is an adorable hat that Melissa made for BB3.0.
Love it! And the best part--Melissa's about to move across country with her band o'boys. Now I've only ever done that kind of trip with 1/4 of the kids she's doing it with--so color me very humbled that she had the time to whip this up and pop it in the mail to me!!
Squeaky gives it her seal of approval too!
Today, the mail heralded Grandma Great's traditional blanket.
I believe she's made one for every grandkid, and now every great-grandkid.
Did I mention she's got 8 kids?
And between those 8 kids there are 20 grandkids (if my math is right!).
Of those 20 there are like two waves--the older wave that I'm a part of and the younger wave that are just becoming adults and some that are still in high school...(or thereabouts--14 cousins are hard to all keep track of!)
Anyway, the woman makes a LOT of blankies!
I absolutely love the one she made for BB3.0.
Cat Lover Parenting Tip Of the Day: Before your baby is born, set up your crib in advance to see if your furballs will have an affinity for sleeping in there. If they do, lay some aluminum foil in the crib to turn them off of it so by the time the baby arrives, they'll have no interest in sleeping in there.
Love, love, love the green! She included the ball band too (because she's awesome like that--and also made me realize I had forgotten to do the same on the blankie I made for my fellow March-Baby pregnant coworker!).
Plymouth Encore Sock. Dude, I didn't even KNOW Plymouth Encore came in sock weight!
This is the same style blankie she made for Chunky 10 years ago. He still sleeps with that thing and oh boy, has it seen better days!
I have no doubt that Baby Bez 3.0 won't love this one just as hard!
