Crocheted Pumpkin Hat and Smiles

Ahh, an actual project up on the blog.  Micah Makes has some of the funnest little crochet hat patterns, and I had to make her crocheted pumpkin hat for the fall season.  It was a project that I found I could work on while August slept on my lap, which means that it actually got done.  Hooray!  

This newborn sized hat will be a perfect photography prop, and I might just make another to throw on August for Halloween.  Micah also provides instructions for making a leaf to add to the top of the hat.  I made the leaf, but chose not to add it.  I like it the way it is.  I love that little ribbed stem, such a perfect detail.  Hop on over to her blog to find her free crochet pumpkin hat pattern.  

Now for a little August update.  Thanks to all of you for your sweet and supportive comments on my last post.  I wrote up the post at a  bit of a desperate moment, and I am so grateful to have kind readers to share their experiences and wisdom.  Thank you, thank you.  We are still trying to figure out exactly what is bothering his little digestive system, and I'm still currently breastfeeding.  It may just be that his digestive system is immature, but he has had some really good days among the harder ones.  So it is a bit more tolerable for all of us. He's also started to give some social smiles, which is so wonderfully rewarding as a parent.  I'm considering giving the infant probiotic drops a whirl, just to see if they help his little system out.  Have any of you tried them?  The reviews online seem pretty good, so I figure it is worth a shot.

Cute hat! And yay for things you can finish while holding a baby.
I haven't tried probiotic drops, but I'd say it's worth a shot. =)

Love the hat! I've seen the Micah Makes site before and her bear-hat made me want to learn how to crochet, but I tried to shove it on to my dad (to make my son one), but fail so far though... ;-P

More yay for the smiles! <3 Those are so awesome, hope you'll get to see & enjoy many, many more of those! No advice on the drops though, I´m not familiar with them. If there are no substantial "cons", it can't hurt to try I guess?

Hope you guys have had a pretty blessing as well, with lots of good memories. :)
