Lylah has not been napping well! I don’t know what happens in her sleep cycle. It seems I have a month of good naps, then a month of bad naps. And of course, this comes at a time when I seem extremely busy! I went to Michaels yesterday looking for something, and I came out with this –
Now – I usually do not buy my yarn from Michaels. I am not a huge fan of acrylic fibers, and the color selection always seems to be just a tiny bit off. But, that being said – bulky yarns are generally pretty expensive to acquire, and when I saw this yarn, I had to pick it up. I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. This is what came out of it –
I am so excited to see this on a baby – I just love the colors, and the chunkiness of the yarn. And to my surprise, it knitted up like a dream. I will be sending it off today, along with a few other items to tiny tush photography.
Last week at Gymboree, while practicing a “walking” exercise, my darling daughter had no clue to put one foot in front of the other. And really, I am ok with that. There is some whacky idea I have in my head that if she isn’t walking, then she is still a baby, and not a “toddler.” I am excited for her to be a toddler, but I guess I am just hanging on to that last bit of babyhood. Well, just like that, after a weekend with Daddy, somebody knows to move her feet – and sister isn’t slowing down. It is just days now, she will be walking all over. It started with Daddy’s hands, and then I grabbed her shopping cart and put her hands on it, and away she goes! I am continued to be amazed at the learning process of a baby. It seems like they just pick stuff up overnight. She was so proud of herself, and even big brother (who is usually too cool for school) is cheering her on! I will say, the one thing that is appealing to me about walking is that she will be able to wear dresses without getting her leg caught up in them.
