Because I’m expecting my first bundle of joy (and it seems like there are a lot of woman on the same page as me right now), all I have on the brain is baby this and baby that. I’m starting to get a little too anxious for this little one to come. I’m just past the half way mark so I still have plenty of time. We already have the nursery furniture and the room painted, so we have a great head start!
My husband is driving me insane because he really wants to find out the gender of the baby, but I put my foot down on that one. I think it’ll be more special to find out when the baby actually arrives. Although, truth be told, I’m getting a little curious myself. I would LOVE to start crocheting some gender specific items if I knew what we were having. I’ve created a new baby board on Pinterest and I just fell in love with everything! I know there are neutral items I can make, but how adorable would floral sandals look on a little girl?
And with my shower only being a few months away, we’ve already started to register for all the necessities. Man, are there a ton of things a little baby needs…and that’s only for the first few years! I really like the idea of a thumbprint family tree that I’m hoping to put together once baby arrives. My all time favorite for a baby shower though, is the diaper cake! Now I know this isn’t a crochet pattern, but my husband and father n law are into motorcycles and Harley’s. How cute would this be?
Let’s not forget there are a TON of baby crochet patterns on AllFreeCrochet! Pretty much any baby crochet pattern can be given as a gift. You can make anything from clothing items to booties to toys and blankets. And we have them all!
