His en utero nickname has been "Elbe" otherwise spelled as "L. B." which is the initials for "Little Baby." Cute, huh? His real name is not to be uttered yet. At least she told us his gender... well, that's the sonographer's best estimation. Right, Alyssa? (my own "I-never-say-100%-but-I'm-99%-sure-it's-a-boy" girl We'll never stop laughing at that!)
Over the last decades, things have changed and sonograms are much more accurate. I'm pretty sure this time they are right about Elbe being a boy. I have put stock in that.
I've personally given Jessica's child a bunch of boy "stuff" so far. I am perhaps as excited as a great aunt can be. Over the decades, I have mostly forgotten how much fun baby goodies are to procure and make! (well, there was Abby's stuff but that was for a girl.)
|First, there is the baby carrier cover like the one pictures in the top left corner, |
but made from the really cute IKEA fabric in all of the other pics, lol!
(there's a tutorial for that here.)
|This is his quiltie (which serendipitously, |
turned out to be the nursery colors she chose. =)
|But WAIT, there's MORE! *blushes already*|
There's the fleece bunny, burp pads and 'pee-pee tee-pees', hee hee!
|Then, there's father-to-be Micheal's compact diaperbag |
chocked full of toys and things a FTB should like
(pattern forthcoming, I hope!)
|Oh yea, there's the really large and cute linen box with a lid...|
|And finally (for now) the wallhanging.|
I told Jess I would change out the letters for his name...
...when I know it! :)
