changes in the air!

The big kids are getting ready to go back to school Monday. They are sad and excited and nervous all at the same time! When they are in school we are going to start pre-k homeschooling with Esme'. So while we were at the store buying supplies for Riley and Niko she got a few supplies of her own which she loved! Gosh, it just blows me away that she will be ready to go off to school next year! Where did the time go??

Another change around here is Fall is in the air! It is getting darker earlier, cooler in the evenings, and all my favorite TV shows are advertising their new seasons (okay, I have like 2 favorite shows, but it still so exciting!). Autumn is my very favorite season! So to get ready for the weather I have picked up my Baby Wearer Poncho once again. My goal is to have this done by the end of September, which seemed
so far away, but is now right around the corner. So here is my progress~ that big hole is the kangaroo pounch for baby to peek out of!

I also knitted this little set for a trade I did with Jessi from BratSacks Babywear. I got Harper an adorable little backpack with a lion on it... I figure it is never too early to make them carry their own stuff!

The wool wasn't quite as thick as I would have liked ( I should have doubled it up) so I lined the hat with some super soft fleece. This is the Giving Pixie pattern from Little Turtle Knits. Very cute... Harper is going to need one of these too!

And, last but not least, I knitted these cute little pants for Harper. They were originally going to be stocked for our congo's grand opening but I wasn't 100% happy with the gusset. And they happen to fit Harper perfectly so we kept them! They are actually a tiny bit long so they will fit all Winter... fingers crossed!

As you can see he was thrilled to have his picture taken in them! It was bedtime~ he was cranky! Hey, we're not called the Mom and Pop-razzi for nothin'!
