Baby Season

Ever since my friend, Rachael had baby Jack, I have been crocheting non-stop. Three (yes, I said three!) of my co-workers (Ashley, Jessica and Breann) found out they were pregnant around the same time, and both Aimee and Amy are now expecting.

Because of the baby boom, I had my Grandma teach me how to use my sewing machine. :) I made Ashley a couple of receiving blankets, a bib and a burp cloth in purple checks. She loved them so much she used one of the blankets for baby Aubrey's homecoming! For Jessica I crocheted the same pattern as baby Jack's blanket, only in pink. I made her a receiving blanket/bib set as well. Baby Abby was born the day before Baby Aubrey, and both girls are beautiful!

Breann isn't due until September, but I already have her gift finished for Baby Landon. I crocheted her a granny square blanket in white, blue, green and yellow. I also made her a receiving blanket/bib set with a cute neutral nursery theme. Her baby shower is in less than a month, and I can't wait to give them to her!

As for Aimee and Amy, I have already started a new blanket for Aimee's baby boy due at the end of September, and I want to pick out some new material to make receiving blanket/bib sets for both of them.

I am so happy for all of my friends, and can't wait to see the rest of the babies!
