I attended a Baby Sprinkle over the weekend for Baby D2. It was like a Baby Shower, except when mom has a lot of what she needs from her first baby, you’re supposed to give things like diapers, lotion, baby shampoo, etc.

I didn’t follow directions very well. I believe every baby should have something new, especially when so much is being handed down from his big brother. Better yet, he should have something handmade especially for him.

Isn’t this little guy the cutest thing ever? I especially love his smile.

I also sewed him a lightweight blanket that coordinates with the quilt I made for his brother. I forgot to take a picture of that, but it’s a single layer of the same fleece trimmed with the Snoopy fabric. Maybe I’ll get a photo in a few weeks with a cute baby bundled inside? (Hint, hint, Lauren.)

stash: Everything came from my stash of thrifted yarn. The pattern is Happy Little Airplane from Amigurumi Two! by Ana Paula Rimoli.

    Oh my gosh Julie! I love that. Any chance you could whip one up for Henry? I hate when people ask me to make shit for them so I won’t be offended if you say no. I will repay you with gold coins and plenty of bottles of flowing wine.

    Thank you so much– I LOVE this little guy!
    I’ll see what I can do about that picture of a baby wrapped up in that blanket… :)

    Oh Julie, what an adorable little airplane. I received lots and lots and lots of softies when my little ones were born (or they did, actually) so at one point I was just hoping people wouldn’t bring more, because I was afraid our house was drowning in them ;-) But a cute little airplane like this, I would have loved. And I am sure every little boy will love it too!
