Coming home outfits

It's FINALLY not raining and/or cloudy here, so I can take some good pictures of the sweaters I made the baby. I'm a bit of an obsessive knitter, so knew I wanted to knit a cute sweater to bring the baby home from the hospital in. Problem was, we don't know if it's a girl or a boy. I finally decided to just go for it, and knit a pink and a blue sweater. I figure, if it's a boy - my friend down the street is due 5 day before me with a baby girl - so no waste there. If it's a girl, the little boy sweater isn't totally ALL boy - I could put flower buttons on it or something.

Mom and I want out last weekend to BRU and picked out the outfits to go under them.

If it's a baby boy, mom spotted this right away:
Because of the way the sweater is, you won't see the sweet little animals on the top - but the feet of this are little bears!
Can you stand it? We are doing a jungle theme in the nursery, and my mom is a bit obsessed with staying in 'theme'.

This is the super cute onsie I found to match the baby girl sweater:
Naturally, after I got it home, I noticed it's a 3 month size. Sigh. It is just right, so I hope I can find the same one in a newborn size.

Shopping for baby clothes is fun! But - a bit frustrating if you don't know the gender. I'm holding off on all other baby clothes shopping until I know what we have. I do have a few super cute onsies that friends have given us as hand-me-downs, so the little guy/gal won't be hanging around in just a diaper....

Your inspiring me to start nitting, anything to help keep my mind off of TTC, i need a distraction. I wonder how hard it is to pick up.... There must be a yarn shop/knitting store around me???

I know you totally don't need assvice...but I can't help myself.

WHen it comes to all the other clothes, go for zips and/or seperates. For two main reasons:

1. It is REALLY hard to get the press-studs lined up right when you're really REALLY tired.
2. If your baby is longer than average, their feet won't fit into the suit! Saag's don't and she was prem, can you believe!

We have lots of pants/tops and some awesome suits with a big old zip all the way down!

You are so talented! I can't believe you knitted those sweaters yourself. I can't knit a kleenex for a flea letalone a sweater.

Very cute clothes!
