Basics and Baby Kicks

Why hello!  I know I haven't posted in two weeks, but we've been a bit under the weather and needed some rest.  Needless to say, by last Saturday we were feeling much better.  Now that my bump has continued to expand, I'm fitting into less and less of my regular clothing - especially my tops.  This was the perfect opportunity to start sewing up some maternity basics, and am I ever thankful for Megan Nielsen and her line of maternity patterns.  

These patterns are labeled for the beginning sewist, and I while I have had some nice experience sewing - I have never sewn with knits before.  Was this pattern ever a breeze to sew up!  I now feel ashamed that I've had this lovely sea green knit in my stash since Tasia first released her Renfrew pattern.  I was too intimidated to sew with knits, but now I see how easy they are.

So while I've started adding some basics to my maternity wardrobe, Little Pooh is starting to show more signs of growth.  This was the first week that Daddy got to feel Little Pooh's baby kicks!  I've been feeling tiny baby kicks for a while, and it was fun to finally share the experience with my hubby.  This sort of thing just gets me more and more excited to meet you, my little one.

One of the things that I love about this Ruched Maternity Top is that I can comfortably wear it now, but I can tell that it will still fit even when my belly is out to here . . .

That's all we've got for now.

Live in this moment and love life!
