You know I LOVE blogging about food, right? But this post is sooo much more fun for me to write. Maybe it’s because it’s about our new little Wylan who just turned 3 months today. Maybe it’s because I’m sitting here looking at his smiling little face while I’m writing. Maybe it’s because these hats and blankets are just so stinkin cute and I can’t hardly stand it. I don’t know but after a long hard day (did I mention that it was long, lol) this post is making me happy!
One thing I love about blogging is that I get to meet (well, we “meet” online) some of the best and most sincere people. My bloggy friends are so much fun and are so creative. I cook food and that’s my thing. But look at what Amy over at The Stitchin Mommy does… she makes the world better one baby at a time 🙂
Have you guys met Amy yet? Not only does she create fun crochet hats and blankets but she also blogs about food, family, crochet tutorials, giveaways and so much more! Yeah, she’s awesome!
Here are a few of the FREE Crochet Patterns on The Stitchin Mommy. Aren’t they so cute!
I was SO EXCITED when she sent me this cute little Elephant Hat for our little Wylie in the mail. We didn’t really buy anything for this little guy because we just had our other son who turned 2 in January and we already had all of the clothes, gear, toys, bottles, etc… so I didn’t really have anything that I could “save” for our Wylie when he got older. That’s where Amy saved the day with this super cute Elephant Hat. It’s his. Only his. Not handed down. Not worn by any other baby, lol. It’s a keeper and something I’ll give to him when he’s grown and has his first baby. Ok I better stop and tell you more about Amy because I’m gettin a little choked up here.
Amy also sells her hats on Etsy. Check out her shop HERE! These would make a GREAT baby gift if you know of someone who is expecting! I might have to stock up on a few of these myself for friends that will be having babies 🙂
Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself. I’m a happy mama and this little guy has been so much fun! He’s growing great, he smiles at everyone all of the time and he’s even started sleeping through the night! He’s my easy going baby which is nice since my other 2 were both really hard babies 😉
And just for the record… I take pictures of food. I’m not a people picture taker if that makes sense. So I thought I’d share with you my super-d-duper high tech picture taking strategy. I plopped in a movie for my 2 year old which you can see he’s looking at while mommy is busy. I’ve got my stuffed animals that Wylan doesn’t even really care about and he’s hungry so he only made it through about 5 minutes worth of pictures. And did I mention that he was cold. Yeah, he doesn’t like to be naked, lol!
Thanks for letting me share my family with you today! It’s fun for a change to blog about us instead of just what we eat! And… I hope you stop by and check out The Stitchin Mommy. Amy really is a fantastic blogger and I feel very lucky to have her as a friend!
Because recipes are still our thing… thought you might want to check out a few while you were here today!
