cutie babies and booties

They might be related, eh?

The bear booties I knit for Lotus forever ago, back when we had no idea what this little person would be like, finally fit. They are so cute:)

Clicky click for extra cuteness…


Visit with baby Icen

My two littlest just before heading over to Omi and Aaron’s house…

I swaddled Simon and rocked him in the rocking chair. I called his brothers over to see how well he smiles now and soothed him with back pats and baby talk. I tucked him in on the couch next to Lotus and he must have stayed there in cozy bliss for 20 minutes. hahaha!

Xander thought it was pretty dumb at first but after seeing all the babying play out he said, “Me next!” ha! That’s right, they are all still my babies.

Finally holding Icen again. So tiny and sweepy…sigh:)

Only eight weeks difference in age and my baby girl is a giant next to him!

Two cousins down, one to go! I’m so excited to have both my sister and sis-in-law having babies so close together.

I like the tag coming off of Icen’s head. It says 100% pure baby cuteness.

I just do what I’m told…by Xander

He makes stuff and tells me to get my camera.

Today’s creations…

Xander sports a crown, cape, shield, wrist guard and metal tube weapon.

Simon displays the map. It looks like X marks the treasure. (so that’s what the paper box full of paper gold coins was for!)

The first crown was too small so Lotus was made queen . Just like Cinderella but in this story having a small head is the desirable feature;)

Okay, back to Icen

Do we look related? hahahaha!!!

Omi and Icen…

two sweaters down, two to go

I feel horrible for posting this on the same day as baby Icen’s birth but I guess not horrible enough to stop myself from doing it. Ha!

Not wanting to diminish the awesomeness of Icen’s arrival AT ALL, I had to document my second sweater completed.

Xander is pleased with his color choice “Purple Mystery.”

There was plenty of the “water green” yarn leftover so I’m using it for a tiny sweater for Lotus in size 12 months and some bulky yarn has been ordered for Isaac’s sweater. WHew! after all of my babies have cozy pullovers I may need to take a knitting break!

One more pic of Icen

Ooops! The last pic didn’t get included for some reason.

Little sweetie face. ****swooon!!****

Baby Icen is here!

My sister Omi and her hubby Aaron had their first baby this morning!

Baby boy, Icen, weighing in at 5 pounds, 15 ounces and 20″. He is a tiny ball of cuteness.

Fresh out of the oven…

I am so happy for you guys! He is such a beautiful baby, healthy as can be and taking to nursing so naturally already. <3

Almost two months old

…and getting too big to model my newborn hats!

I made some more buttons but this time used shape cutters instead of button molds. Lesson learned: Don’t forget to set the holes down in a trough. The thread overwhelms the button after it’s sewn on without that little gutter.

The hats the buttons are for. I know, wild and crazy combo:)

Busting out of the hat!

Lotus is such a happy baby. And such a sucker for my baby talk. It doesn’t take much to get her to bust out a smile.

Baby mobile

We need to start up a website for Xander’s creations!

He made a mobile for Lotus out of Tinker toys and paper.

looking up at it…
