photobooth baby hat

When we stepped outside to watch the recycling truck, our normal Thursday morning activity, I finally noticed a significant chill in the air. It would seem that even here in toasty New Mexico fall is finally slowly laying her chilly hand upon us. Which made me think, I'm sure glad I finished that little hat, although technically it won't be needed for another 7 months or so. Chilly air makes you think thoughts like that, the same way it compels you to knit a newborn hat in fall colors for a little one who won't be making an appearance until after Easter. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to add a little green bow and call it a carrot hat.

Congratulations. Although I am waiting for you to day the words before I really believe it. Of course, last time you said the words and then announced it was a joke. I guess I'll have to wait a few more months then check out your pictures.

Carrie said...

Chris B. said...

Congrats!
and the carrot hat is cute too!

melissa marie said...

ps your hands are pretty. (someone with baby hands just notices that kind of thing.)

i'm so happy for you! (about that baby, not about the hands. although the hands are nice...i just probably wouldn't put an exclamation mark after saying i'm happy them.)(now you just think i'm insane.)

Hi Carrie-it's your cousin Christie-I'm expecting the first of April-when are you due? Congrats!

Carrie said...

Haha Mel, you WOULD notice my hands. The one in the back looks like an ostrich.

Christie- First of all, I know who you are silly, :) and second of all, I'm due toward the end of April. Crossing our fingers we make it that long. Banks was due April 18 and born March 29, and we don't really want a third march bday.

hooray for April babies!! Lets have a nice, big, healthy boring baby this time, eh? No banksie repeats. Not that he isn't a blast now, just a bit stressful to begin with.

p.s. I've started putting Destry in size 3 diapers...its the pooping that gets me in the 2's. Not enough room. Has banks moved on from threes yet? :D I have a massive baby

Natalie said...
