The Vest

Yesterday I showed you guys a picture of the little jacket I made for Lucas' christening, well, today I am showing you the vest he will wear if the weather is warm that day. It's winter in Brazil, but that doesn't mean that it will be cold, so I want to be prepared. What do you think? I didn't use any pattern, I made the whole thing in single crochet, except the ribbing on the bottom.
Since you guys asked when his christening will be, I'll tell you. It's going to be next month!

My sister is the only one in my family that had a chance to meet my baby, she came to the US for two weeks to give me a hand just after I had the baby, it was wonderful by the way, so my whole family is just very excited to meet my little guy!

We are really tight right now, but we were able to get one of the tickets using the miles we had been saving for a few years, the baby is going on my lap - free, and the remaining ticket was a great deal, so we just couldn't pass. My poor husband will just have to work double hard to pay the bills when we come back! (I guess that's life though, isn't it?)

Well. now I'm off to start working on my mother-in-law's vase cozy that she requested as her birthday present, which coincidentally is the same day as my birthday!
