He is the most beautiful, happy, healthy baby we have ever seen! We are completely in love with him. We knew he had a cleft lip and cleft palate since the first ultrasound but thankfully, it is VERY mild and doesn't bother him one bit. He eats like a professional and is making the transition into parenthood easy for his dad and me. We are soooooo happy that Jack is finally here!

And another crafty addition I made for the nursery is a little pouch to put things that we may need close to the changing pad. I figured it would be nice to have since we are using the top of the dresser as the changing area and there is not any surface area to keep things like diaper cream and whatnot. If anything, it adds a bit of cuteness. I just figured out the dimensions I wanted and got some felt from Wal Mart and sewed it up. Easy!

Here's how I ended up interperting the "decrease 1 stitch at each end on every alternating 3rd and 4th row 3 times":
Row 1: knit, Row 2: purl, Row 3: knit dec 1st and last st.
Row 1: purl, Row 2: knit, Row 3: purl, Row 4: knit dec 1st and last st.
Row 1: purl, Row 2: knit, Row 3: purl dec 1st and last st.
I had left out previously, that, according to the stitch counts I had, only 6 stitched needed to be decreased for this section. However, it never said anything about the number of rows needed for each repeat or how many rows you were to end up with. So, I put a lifeline in and figured that I would rip back if the sleeve did not fit into the body properly. I am sooooo happy that it did though!!! it fit perfectly.
