Logan's Room

Logan'sRoom1.jpg

It took us 6 months to finally clean out the extra room and make it into the "BABY's ROOM."

Before he was born, Logan's room was just a guestroom and we knew that my husband's parents would be occupying that room for a while so we didn't do anything to it. After they left, I didn't know what to do with it! He started moving a lot so I needed something for him to safely land on, and baby-proof everything. We decided to keep the guest bed for later when Logan is old enough -- since he sleeps in our room in the Pack n Play with a mattress, we don't really need to buy a new bed for him, at least for now. Maybe later, I can buy Magic Bumper, so that he doesn't fall off the bed. 

Carpet and curtains are from Ikea, and I also got the fabric for the pillow covers from there as well.

The pillowcover is just a simple knife-edge pillow, with invisible zippers so that I can clean them as often as I should. Logan LOVES the bright colors and often points at the drawings, as if to say, "OMG THIS LOOKS DELICIOUS!" Haha.. I wish.

2 days before he turned 7 months, he started crawling. Now I am getting SERIOUS about baby-proofing. Plastic covers or brown paper bags attract him, He would crawl towards anything that makes noise, or whenever he sees Candy or Bagel so now I have to make sure that I keep an eye on the doggies too. So far, they are ok with Logan, but with Bagel's shyness and Candy's feisty temperament, I need to be careful! :)

O and Rex Wrecks It! is Logan's favorite book right now (I think Rex reminds him of Mr. Dino, his favorite toy!)

Dior Homme inspired baby outfit is complete! I knitted the vest last weekend during my ballet recital and then completed the shirt and pants last week, whenever Logan took a nap. There was that one day he took 2-hour nap back to back so I got 4 hours of sewing time! I guess he really wanted a new outfit too! :D

Today is Logan's 100th day!

At Candy & Bagel today, we're celebrating my first human baby's 100th day! Koreans celebrate this day 1) because infant mortality rate was so high back in the old days that surviving 3 months/100 days was a big deal and 2) 100th day after birth is actually exactly 365 days after conception (the TimeHop app actually proved this today). 

So! To share this joyful day with other knitters, I decided to make all my independently sold patterns available for free today until tomorrow! You heard me. Take 100% off from all my patterns on Ravelry with this discount code: Logan100
