Marion’s official one month old pictures – we’ll take the same photo each month until she turns one and see how much she grows!
Because of course I can’t just pick one photo
The story of the polar bear she’s friends with … when I was born, one of my uncles got me my first teddy bear, because as he told me mom, he wanted to get me something extra special. So for Marion, my brother Brent did the same thing. Except he said, anyone can have a teddy bear, but it takes a special girl to get a polar bear from Alaska. So her first teddy bear is a polar bear 🙂
Now that she’s a month old, she’s settling into a bit more of a routine and when she goes to sleep, we can pretty much count on her being out for at least two hours. Which means I have knitting time again! So for the second week in a row, I have knitting to show.
Since the little miss is currently sleeping, and we don’t wake sleeping babies, you’ll have to just settle for pictures of the booties, not of her actually wearing them.
These are the Page 81 Booties by Susan B. Anderson.
They are ridiculously quick to knit. Okay, so they took me a week, but I have a newborn, so whatever. If I didn’t have a certain someone to take care of, they would have been up and done by the time I’d finished watching Grey’s and Private Practice on the DVR.
They are simple to knit (although I did the double knit option which just made it go quicker and made it a little more interesting.) The super fun part of them is in the construction though.
For anyone who wants to make some, Maid Marion’s foot is currently 3 1/4 inches long. These booties are 3 1/2 inches long, so I’d say they would fit (as knit) a six week old pretty perfectly. Just size down to three inches and use a stretchier yarn than cotton if you’d want them to fit newborn to one month.
And now for just cuteness …
She is never still!
Perhaps my newest favorite picture – this is the week that they started to really notice each other
She loves trying to roll over
How did my baby get to be one month old already?
