Since then I have had enough ideas of things to make for this baby to last me a lifetime. The first thing I decided to make was a mobile for the nursery with some soft knit animals that can be taken down and used to play with when he is older. These photos only show the four animals I made, but I shipped it off to my mom and she added her own knit elephant before giving it to Lauren at her shower for me.
I am flying home to be with Lauren at the end of next month after the birth and I cannot wait. And then Jeff will fly out to meet me and our whole family will go on our annual beach trip at my grandparents’ beach house. This time we will have a tiny human in tow. I think it will make the trip ten times as magical as normal. We’re all so giddy!
