The author makes no claims as to the quality of the pictures.

First up, knitting!

I’m much further along than this now; I’ve already finished the second leg and have joined for the hips.  I’m using KPPPM color P338.  Oh yeah, these are the Baby Bell Bottoms.

Just adorable!

Probably the best picture of Ladybug we’ve managed to take in a while. She LOVES preschool. All weekend she pretended to be at preschool with her friends. Need to go potty? Everybody line up and wait your turn. Want to color a picture? Get paper for everyone and spread the crayons around.

Head off the floor

Pigeon is getting bigger and stronger every day!  Her favorite thing to do now is to stand up on our laps (assisted, of course.)  The poor girl has had Croup for the past 4-5 weeks.  It gets better and then gets worse.  (They already did a chest X-Ray, so it’s not Pneumonia.) 

Pigeon and I are very excited that we’re going to be able to see the Yarn Harlot next month! 

I think that’s just about it.

Things, in no particular order:

Hubby is playing Fantasy Football this year.  I always wanted him to have a hobby!  (He’s very grateful he didn’t get to draft Tom Brady.)

Pigeon is 3 months old.  She’s still not sleeping through the night.  It’s ok.  She’s cute so she can get away with it.

I finished one sock

I’ve been bitten by the babyknits bug.  The other sock is going to wait.

Isn’t this pattern totally cute?  (if you don’t have the Rav, go here and click on Boheme in the sidebar.)

I think it will have to wait, though, because I want to make some Baby Bells first.  I’m in the choosing yarn stage.  I’m thinking I have so much sock yarn….  Ooh, I think I know what I’m going to use! 

It may not sound like it, but I’ve had a hard time finding motivation lately.  It took me over a week to close the toe on that one sock.  I spent most of my free time yesterday reading Not Always Right instead of doing something fun.

And look at Google’s home page image today!  (For posterity, it’s the LHC!)
