DIY {Crochet Totoro for Boston}

Before the crack of dawn on Friday, AJ kissed and hugged me goodbye to embark on another adventure of his own, doing research in a foreign land half way around the world -- Cambodia. I was too exhausted to sob the tears of my heart, but certainly felt it that day and the ones after. To ease the longing and narrow the distance from each other, we decided to take a picture a day of our experiences and interests to share with the other so we can still be a part of the other's adventures. Not all of mine will be posted because I just know how tired I'll be to write. Here goes:

This is a picture of Totoro, a character from Hiyao Miyazaki's film, "Totoro." We love Studio Ghibli films and are planning to use Totoro as the theme for baby's nursery. I got the pattern from Lucy Ravenscar's blog. I thought of purchasing one from Etsy, but have you seen the prices of things on there? Crazy! So I have been working on this Totoro everyday after work to give to our little baby boy, Boston when he arrives in September. Totoro has helped keep my mind off of AJ being gone. It's getting a little difficult because I have pregnancy carpal tunnel, but I really want to finish this. There's nothing like seeing the end results of all your efforts. So worth the pain. I'm working on his little white and blue friends next. AJ is also working on a Totoro for Boston made of felt. I'm excited to see it! We love our precious baby boy already and can't wait to meet him!
