And Baby Makes Five
Last night, my husband asked me how my blog was doing. When I told him I hadn't posted this month yet, he replied, "WHAT?! You gotta post at least once a week, Molly. What are you doing?!"
To which I replied, "I just had a baby!!!!"
"Oh, yeah," he said. Ha!
That's the best kind of excuse, right?! Our little man arrived on February 2nd. And if you've ever had a baby, you know what kind of whirlwind it is! The first week is an absolute blur to me. And since then, we've been settling in and finding our new routine. Which has included a lot of baby photo shoots, I have to admit!
I'm excited to introduce little Dane to you:
Ahhh, fresh babies are just the sweetest. I love him to pieces. Labor and delivery was COMPLETELY different than how it went with my first two (starting with the fact that this guy was three days late, as opposed to his 4-5 days early brothers). He came into the world his own way, and I think he's going to be very different than G and Ro.
We've already been showing off some of the sweet little outfits I sewed up while I was pregnant. Only scroll through if you like cute babies.
My big boys have been SUPER excited to match their little brother! Insert Valentine's Day cute-ness here:
Grant is always super proud to get to hold Dane.
The big kids are wearing Max and Meena patterns in both of the pictures (Mega Max Raglan and True North Hoodie), and Baby Dane is wearing the Muse playsuit from Stitch Upon a Time. Whenever I get Dane dressed in a me-made outfit now, Grant says, "Oh, he looks handsome. Let's take his picture!" It's things like that my hubby says I'm ruining our children ;)
I did take a week off from sewing after Dane was born. But then I jumped back into it. . . I couldn't stay away, haha. I've done a couple of strikes and pattern tests already, and I can't wait to show them to you! I do still need to find the daily rhythm of being a stay at home mom to these three boys . . . it's already been louder and messier than normal, and this little one isn't even mobile yet!
Thank you so much to everyone who messaged me or commented with good wishes in the days before Dane was born. It meant so much to me. <3
