Oh Baby!

One of my second graders will be a big sister soon! Her mom is due on December 8th, but she's already been to the hospital a few times, so they say it could be any day. Today I knitted a hat for the baby!

Here is where I found the pattern (I just made it a little bit bigger). I'll probably make one more in a different color before the baby is born.

I decided to make this hat because we have such a small school community, and the mom is one of my party room moms!

I'm wondering - do you do anything for your students when they have a new baby at home? I know when I student taught, the district sent home a little "big brother" package when one of my first graders' moms had a baby. I'd love to know if there's anything you usually do!


  1. Wow!!! That is SOOOOO nice!! We don't do anything like that but I think I'd like to start for sure. But I'm not a knitter so I would have to think of something else . . . :)
