The Year of the Boy

This summer 3 baby boys will be added to the ever growing list of grandchildren my wonderful in-laws have.  Not only that, but my father in law has two little grand-nephews being born this year also.  Maybe it's caused by global warming.  :-)

My two new little nephews were the perfect opportunity to get back into making baby stuff!

My brother-in-law Lincoln and his wife Mimi are getting ready to welcome their first child into their home, about the same time I'm due in August.  Lincoln is a maniac when it comes to baseball, so what better way to say congratulations than with baseball gear for their little guy.  I made a little whole cloth baseball quilt for baby David, and found him a little matching outfit he should fit into just in time for next year's baseball season.

My sister-in-law Stephanie and her husband Mike are expecting their 4th baby (2nd son) in the next few weeks.  I figure Stephanie probably has plenty of quilts by now, but little Elliot definitely needed his own initialed baby gear.  The pants are made from a pattern in Amy Butler's Little Stitches book.  Super easy, and I think adorable.  The picture doesn't really do them justice.
Baby Elliot also is getting a new burp cloth that doesn't match at all, but I am super in love with the Michael Miller 2D Zoo line, so I bought enough for a few baby items.

These will all start wending their way out west very soon!  In the meantime, I'm almost finished with a super secret project that I can't wait to show you.
Have a great weekend!
