There's No Place Like Home Birth: Our Home Birth Story Part 2: Made With Love
Alhamdulilah if you have been following along on TMH, I just started learning to knit!! MashaAllah I love it, it's fun, it's relaxing, and I can make things for the ones I love.
So for my second knitting project I made our baby some booties!!! MashaAllah we made the baby two pairs, in prayer we will be placing them on the feet of our baby.
If you have ever made anything with your hands, whether cooking from scratch--- from the foundation, or making clothes... then you know the personal joy it feels to see your family enjoying what you have made and worked hard on.
Part of preparing for the home birth is preparing the babies clothes, washing them and putting them away in a sealed bag... to be open on that special day (as my midwife requested)
A clean onesie, baby booties, blanket, etc and a Bismillah, baby Rahim bag is sealed and put away for that special day.
Have you made anything for the ones you love? SubhanAllah it is so rewarding inside... why didn't I take up this wonderful hobby a long time ago?
It is the first time I have made anything for the children to wear when they are born, so I had my mommy, cry emotional moment and still do when I see them... small and made with love. My heart gets all big and excited.
Not only did I find a new hobby, I found something my heart enjoys that can help and benefit others. Really ..how awesome is that!
Handmade with love
Can't wait to place them on your little feet inshaAllah....
