Since I can't stop making baby things, I made a few pairs of baby leg warmers recently! Not only do I think they look cute, but they seem like they would make diapering easier and protect the baby's knees when he begins to crawl since a lot of our home is tiled. I followed two different tutorials (this one and this one) to make them, so one pair is a different style than the other 2 pairs. Basically, I bought some (really inexpensive) women's knee high socks, cut the feet parts off and sewed a cuff to what was left. Easy. And cute! Of course, this post would be even better if I had a cute little baby to model these, but that time will come soon enough! Click "Read More" below to see the finished products.

Sometimes I feel like a complainer. I try not to be, really (and honestly don't do it too much). But some days I feel like the phrases, "AH! This acid reflux is awful!" or "I'm so tired I just want to sleep until our due date," or "My body is breaking down!" are all I say! I do realize, however, that I am actually really lucky. We are really lucky. Maybe the word lucky isn't even correct; fortunate is a better word. I am very grateful for being so fortunate and here's why (in no order):

Mobiles can be beautiful and fun to look at--they can also be really expensive. When looking for baby stuff it seemed like all the crib mobiles I liked were more than we wanted to spend on something we'd only use for awhile (although I guess if I did buy a $200 mobile, I'd keep it up forever or something) (like this, or this).
So, rather than spend lots of money I decided to make my own mobile--all for under $5! First, I will say that though I really liked some other mobiles, it seems like so many of them are designed to be looked at from the side and not from below--and let's face it, the baby will be looking up at it so I wanted it to be engaging from the bottom and not have him just staring up at the underside of plush cars or elephant butts as is typical of a lot of mobiles.
