Lamb hat

While I was still pregnant, I made up this sweet little lamb hat in anticipation of the arrival of our baby girl. I found the pattern on Repeat Crafter Me, and loved it instantly.

Guess what?! Baby Girl HATES hats! I am so dissapointed! She is fine with one on if you are holding her up, but if she's in a car seat or laying down, every time she moves her head, the hat shifts and she is not impressed. I can't really blame her, it's not fun to have a hat shift over your eyes and then not be able to pull it off by yourself.

I'm hoping when she's a bit bigger she won't mind them as much.

Some baby stuff and a cake!

Hi strangers! I haven't been keeping up with my blog! 😮  My apologies!

Life with baby #2 is going great. Little Monkey loves helping take care of her baby sister and enjoys giving plenty of kisses each day. 

A second baby makes life busier but I'm thankful to still be able to find some time to fit in crochet projects. I have even started babysitting again! 

A couple projects I have yet to share on the blog include this baby sweater....

... and these sweet little wrap around baby booties...

Also, thanks to an amazing, wonderful, fantastic friend who stocked me up on freezer crock pot meals, I've been able to slack on my supper cooking duties and made this carrot cake instead! Ha!

I was surprised the other day when my hubby came home and requested a carrot cake. He's not usually a big fan but had developed a craving! I had never made carrot cake before, but now that I have (and know how much oil is in it) I am no longer disillusioned that it is a healthy cake! Lol!
