甥っこ誕生! Become antie again!

I become an antie again!! A baby of my youngest brother was born last week!! Boy, again :) but before the baby was born, we all thought that it would be a girl. More than a couple of weeks ago, I went to Abakun, a fabric shop near London Road in Liverpool, to get a yarn to make a baby bonnet. I chose peach pink 4 ply wool and crocheted a bonnet before the baby was born. I was so convinced, though, that the baby was a girl, because my sister-in-law said that she'd thought it'd be a girl, and also I heard that my mum had already bought some baby clothes for a girl! but the baby is a boy!!! What am I going to do with this peach pink bonnet? All my friends, who are pregnant now, are expecting a boy, not a girl... If anyone knows or has a friend who's expecting a baby girl, please let me know. I'd be happy to give it to somebody who needs it!

Anyway, I gave up making another bonnet in a different colour, no time to make a new one, but I'm hoping to start making a baby blanket for his 100th day celebration in November. This time I got some white and peppermint green yarn! :) I've learned how to make this square motief from Sue, but it looks far more complicated than making a bonnet!! Let's hope I can finish it before November.

I got a very short email from my brother only on the day the baby was born (his email was "The baby's born. A boy. Looks like Ryu (his eldest son, who is only 13 months old")), but after that, nobody let me know a name of the baby, I heard nothing at all for more than a week since!! Very frustrating though. At last, my bro emailed me the baby's name. Keito is his name, it's a quite pretty name, but the problem is that it gets very confusing, as the baby's name and his mother's name are very similar. Would be very tricky when I want to call the baby's mother and when I want to call the baby :) Anyway, I cannot wait to go back to Japan in October. I'm dying to meet the baby and hold him :) xxx

先週、下の弟のところに二人目が生まれ、またまた叔母になりました!一人目に続き、また男の子。まだ赤ちゃんが生まれてくる前に、かぎ針編みで乳生児用の帽子を編むことに決め、早速、毛糸やさんへ。義妹とスカイプで話してた時、たぶん女の子だと思うと言っていたし、母も女の子の服をすでに購入済みと聞き、女の子だとかなり確信をもったわたしは、ピーチピンクの毛糸を選び、帽子を完成させた。なのに、出てきてみたら男の子だった!すでにできあがったピンクの帽子をどうせえっちゅうの~。。いま、妊娠している友達で女の子が生まれる予定の人いないんだよなぁ、、、。誰か友達の友達で女の子がもうすぐ生まれるって人がいたら言ってください!ぜひもらって欲しい(笑)。今から編みなおすには時間がないので、今回はあきらめ、秋の100日のお祝いにむけてブランケットを編むことに♪。早速、新しい毛糸、今度は白とペパーミントグリーン、を買いに行って来、スーからモチーフの編み方を習ったのは今日の午後。帽子と違ってややこしいけど、数を間違えないようにがんばらなければ。

生まれた日に、3行メール(「今うまれた。男の子。上の子そっくり。」)がきてから1週間たっても名前が決まった連絡がこなくて超いらいら(笑)。やっと、今日、連絡がきて、義妹の名前から一文字とって、けいと君に決定!かわいい名前ですが、「けいちゃん」って呼んだら、義妹とのこと呼んでるのか、赤ちゃんのこと呼んでるのかわからんくなりそう、、、。秋の日本帰国まであと2ヶ月!早く顔見てだっこしたいもんです♪ xxx
