He was 5 days late, 5 excruciating days, but now he's here and part of the family. This second son of mine is modeling his "if I make it the baby will come" outfit that I made in that last week of pregnancy. I stole pants and hat idea from Made by Rae, because I literally could have no other thoughts that week besides, "it's it time yet? now? now is going to happen?"The hat reverses to a pink stripe because we didn't know if it was a little man or a little lady. The pants are from an old tank top that is super lightweight because it's August and should be hot, right? The Midwest has decided what the hell let's have fall early this year.
The booties I actually started when I was in labor and finished up this past week. They're from the same pattern I made for a friend's baby and they are just so stinking cute. And now I have a whole Von Trapp matching family!
