Oh Baby

In less than five months, these little hand-knit booties will belong to one sweet little baby-- mine!

We're expecting a baby in early July and feel so blessed and excited. Now that I'm well into my second trimester (I keep wanting to say semester; clearly I still know much more about grad school than mommyhood. But I digress), I have energy to think about what needs to be done in the next few months.

I will say that my ability to write out my thoughts has dimmed a bit. I definitely have some pregnancy brain. Not to mention baby on the mind all the time. I have a little baby bump and have just started to feel light fluttery kicks, which are the most wonderful reminders.

The nursery is our next house project for sure, which I plan to document here. Just starting to think about colors and schemes. Fun!


  1. Wow! Congratulations to you and your husband.
    I love infants, more than most. Good thing I've had three of my own!
    Motherhood is rewarding and exhausting. My advice to you is not to take any unsolicited advice ;) and go with what feels right and makes sense for your family.
    Best of luck.

  2. knitting needles on stand-by, wheelbarrow load of soft organic cottons on its way. best project ever!

  3. Thanks, Kerry! I am so very excited. Hope all is well in VA and that you're settling in nicely.

  4. I should also mention that these little booties were made by my talented mother (creator of all the cowls I wear all winter). Who also has ordered a truckload of soft, organic yarn to make so many adorable little things. Can hardly wait.

  5. wow!! christina -- a huge congrats to you and cabot :) i have two other friends who are also expecting right now, too! i would love to get together sometime soon. xox

  6. Christina, as you already know I am so excited for my next auntie-dom.
    The booties are amazing and I need your sound fashion advice; can a 21 year old get away with a pair?
