Wee Wednesday: The End is Nigh

We're in the final stage of my pregnancy, and I finally decided to stop being so lazy about taking some more bump photos! I can't believe she is going to be here so soon. There's still so much baby knitting I'd like to get done first! I guess we'll see how far along I get with it all before she makes her debut.


This is my favourite of the shots, which were taken while doing FO shots of the Upcycled Cardi, which I'll post about REALLY soon!

These two hats are pretty much the cutest things I think I've ever knit:

Newborn Bunny Hat (Ravelled here)

Bunny hat 1

Newborn Kitten Hat (Ravelled here)

Cat Hat

I'm hoping I made them small enough to fit a newborn, I love the idea of her wearing them during the first couple of weeks out in the world. The Newborn Kitten Hat is a much-modified version of the bunny hat- Maybe I should have saved it for a Mod Monday post?!

This is such a precious photo and beautiful little hats. Congratulations on your little bundle of joy.

Jacey said...

Oh, the kitten hat! LOVE! And of course, you and your little baby bump are adorable! I can't wait to see your upcycled cardigan post, and your little girl very soon!

Oh what lovely hats!

Pop over to my blog if you want to have a look at the baby cardigans that I design & knit.

Hope your pregnancy is going well ... not too long now.

Best Wishes

Awww, I love a bump! What a great photo.

And those hats, OMG. Cute overload!

P.S. I love your new (grownup) hat pattern!

You look so beautiful! I wish I had a photo like that from my pregnancy...
Up-cycled cardi looks great!
Best wishes!

OMG they are super cute! I really want to get some maternity photos taken but I am finding it hard to find a photographer on the Gold Coast whose style I like. They all seem obsessed with the naked belly shots with fabric draped around you which I'm not keen on. I would just like some normal photos in nice clothes in a pretty setting. The search continues!

Monica said...

That is a beautiful photo of you as well as the upcycled cardi. And the baby knits are adorable!

Can't wait to see more of these projects.

Susan said...

Oh Julie...thanks for sharing! I love your bump photo in your upcycled cardi. You look amazing. I am excited for your little one to make her debut. How exciting for you and G.

Evelyn said...

You look more beautiful than ever! Even if those adorable hats are a little too big you HAVE to put them on her. And remember, while you will be tired, there will be many hours when she's sleeping and you'll have time to knit an inch or two on more baby goodies.

Cassy said...

You look radiant! Cute knits. Hope everything labor-wise is easy for you.

Hello Julie,
oh how sweet is that cat hat! If I will some day have a child by my own, I must make one, too!
And the photos of you on your Flickr stream are so beautiful.
Best wishes for the last weeks of your pregnancy! You'll be a great Mum.

Oooh I can't WAIT to hear all about your upcyled cardi! And those hats are toooo cute. I love babies in hats ♥
I hope your pregnancy goes very well; be sure to rest a lot while you can! ♥

That first photograph is just the sweetest and the hats are super cute - love the little ears:)

Beth said...

Just wanted to offer an idea I wish someone had told me about bump documentation:
If possible, take some bump profile pics right before you leave for the hospital/birthing center/wherever. The hugeness of the bump is fleeting... Almost as fleeting as the adorable, just born, wrinkled baby face. Document what you can. And best wishes for the home stretch.

Cute baby bump. And the kitten hat is adorable :)
