31.2 Weeks + Crochet Baby Outfit

Down to the single digits now (for weeks) with the countdown! Baby Hansen had a healthy heart rate at our last prenatal (150) and seems to be doing a lot of growing. Thankfully, she decided flip head down and enjoys making things more uncomfortable for mama. I am so glad she is cooperating though, and so far she has decided to stay that way. I can now feel her different limbs. That was strange at first, but it is just so amazing how much closer we are getting to being able to hold this precious gift! It is crazy how much love I have for this little one when I haven't even met her. I can only imagine what it will be like when I first lay eyes on her. <3 p="">

I have gone through a few tough days lately, and I would definitely say that this 3rd trimester has been like a roller coaster ride. Since the baby is getting heavier, it continues to put more pressure on my pelvis and back. I already carry low to begin with, so I am just praying God helps me get through the next 9 weeks. I have so much I want to get done, but I have to be careful not to overdo it... as I usually do. 

We still have not even gotten started on the nursery - I have been waiting for so long to work on it, but there's only so much I can do alone. I am hoping we can get it at least painted by my first baby shower on October 5th, so we can have a place to put all the gifts. My dining room and living room are acting as storage for all the stuff in the nursery until we can get it painted. It will be so nice to have everything in its place and I will feel soo much better! 

Below is my latest project for our little girl. This should fit her by the Christmas season, which is what I made it for! Booties, hat and cardigan. The hat is supposed to be a bit large so it can be worn like a slouchie hat. Doesn't it all look so warm?! Pair this with a long sleeved onsie and some cute leggings and she will be so adorable. Yarn used for the outfit is Caron Simply Soft Autumn Red. Go to my older posts for a link to the bootie pattern. The hat was completely made up by yours truly. The cardigan can be found here. I had an incredibly hard time reading her instructions, but it came out okay, I think!

More crochet and other projects to come. :)


  1. Can you please send me the crochet pattern for this adorable sweater, hat, & boots?

  2. The cardigan can be found at and the booties are at I made the hat up myself and don't have a pattern for it - sorry! But there are lots of similar patterns out there, I'm sure. Happy crocheting!
