I've got little tiny baby girls on my mind again! I can't stop thinking about our littlest sisters because the ex-nanny's due date is fast approaching! Can you believe I still can't find a designer non pink layette for her to come home in? If I find something that isn't pink, it doesn't come in a newborn size or the ex-nanny just isn't a fan of the outfit. She would prefer a Ralph Lauren item and I've been searching everywhere. This is hard! I remember seeing so many things when my sun was just born. I don't know where they've gone, but they need to come back!
I went to the outlets this past Saturday to see if Ralph had anything for me. He didn't. So I hit up all the children's stores and guess what I found? Nothing! Pink really has taken over girl's clothing! I'm always up for a challenge, so I'll continue my search for our tiny sisters. I will never give up!
In the meantime, I decided to do something I did for my own sun when I couldn't find what I wanted - make it myself! I started crocheting (my grandmother taught me when I was a child) a personalized blanket for the ex-nanny's baby girl. In shopping, I saw a lot of baby blankets, but they were mostly pink or had a pink design on them. Now, you know that I just am not into to pink at all, so even the smallest amount of pink takes me out the game! I just decided to go to the store and buy some soft baby yarn to make a blanket. I made all of my sun's blankets, so why not? I'm hustling to get it done and in the mail before this little lady makes her debut! That's why I've been quiet for the last few days.
Crocheting is a great way to give someone a little piece of you when they are having a baby. The time it takes to make a masterpiece can only be given up with lot of love. I'll get off of my mush box now and let you know that if you are not a master crochet artist, such as myself or my homie, CB, there are other options. I loved all the organic cotton blankets and towels that were given to my sun. They have no dyes or chemicals that may irritate baby's skin and they are so soft! I found this American Baby Company receiving blanket on Amazon.com for only $9.99. Isn't the little bear cute?
Anywho, I have to get back on my crochet job. This blanket isn't going to make itself. I'll make sure to post a picture when it's done!
