I have decided…

I will not be knitting any more Baby Surprise Jackets in fingering weight yarn. I don’t care how cute they are, babies grow too darn fast. Luckily however, he’s got lots of room left in his longies!!

Our tiny guy hit four weeks yesterday, which I can hardly believe. As all newborns do, he’s growing and changing so incredibly fast. He’s more solid now, that newborn floppiness is starting to go away and he’s turning into a sturdy little baby.

So four weeks, it’s time for a blog name for our new baby boy. I’ve struggled with this one, as I’m not the most creative in the nickname department. But his birth made me think of one. A couple of hours before he was born, he did this crazy twisty/spinning thing as he moved down the birth canal. (I’m still amazed at how aware I was during his birth!) This made me think of Spinning Babies, a web site run by a wonderful local midwife.  So, hmmmmm….spinning babies, a spinning mama….let’s call him Spinner! So Spinner it will be!!!

    Welcome Spinner! We need to have him come for a visit at the Blue Moon soon. We promise you’ll get time to knit, as we’ll be busy holding the baby.

  2. Yeah Spinner! I love it! Amelia totally outgrew her BSJ too fast too. It’s a 3/4 length sleeve now but just barely fits across her middle – and I did hers in light worsted!

    Oh, love Spinner. I have never knit the BSJ maybe I won’t.

  4. Hi, Spinner! *makes mental note about fingering weight baby sweaters*

  5. Spinner-Baby! Hurray!

    I wish I had a BSJ out of fingering-weight yarn. I think wee Henry will be small enough for one for quite a while still. If I had KNOWN I was going to have another preemie I could have prepared properly. Seems a little late to start one now, though.

    Spinner – I love it! That awareness during birth is just incredible, I remember it from my last one.

    Love the sweater on him, even if it is getting to be too small.

    He is a gorgeous one, he is! Welcome, Spinner!

  8. Welcome Spinner, love his outfit.
