Outfitting Mr. Oliver

We are getting really close now! 37 weeks and 2 days down and who knows how many left to go. Tired the last few days. Necessary naps but still managing to walk my 2 miles a day and go to prenatal yoga. Feet hurt and often swell at night. I guess it is all par for the course.

We are getting very excited now. Gabriel has been super cute getting all excited. He has been the one with the patience to go through the novel of a manual for installing the car seat and he has been very busy with many little things all over the house.

There has been so much knitting for gifts lately but here are a few of the little things that I have made for little Oliver.
