Baby Boy Knitting Patterns?

My son's SO is expecting a baby and we just found out it will be a boy! Of course, I must begin knitting for him. So I am asking, what is the most darling knitting pattern for a little guy you have ever seen?

The baby is due in July. He would have been conceived within days of my elder son's death, so I am already feeling extremely attached to him. I am really excited!

My other knitting has been relegated to mostly socks. I caved and have been working on a pair of Jaywalkers in STR Lapis. One sock just needs a toe. I have also begun my sock pal's sock for Sockapaloooza. I am knitting the New England sock from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road socks book using Koigu in a pretty shade of orchid.

I am still in a rut in that I can't seem to focus on a large project right now. There are a lot of things I want to knit, just can't seem to get in the right mood.

Your baby boy pattern suggestions would be very much appreciated. TIA!
