Busy Creating Things…

March 21, 2013

If you’re not friends with me on facebook, perhaps you don’t know our news.  It’s one of the reasons I’ve been a little MIA around here. 

We’re expecting baby #3 this September! This was a very early ultrasound to confirm the baby wasn’t ectopic like my pregnancy last summer, but I’m sure you get the gist ;) 
I’ve had awful morning sickness this time, which thankfully seems to have mostly subsided.  Now I’m just craving bacon and chocolate milk like crazy! Eleanore is super excited on the prospect of a new baby sister. She’s not too enthusiastic that it could be a boy though…

The girls have been busy creating, too. We have been making our house look a little more spring-like, even if there’s still snow on the ground. We made this really cool Easter Egg Garland. We couldn’t get our water balloons blown up, so we used regular balloons. It was very messy, but I think they turned out really nice.

and Eleanore *loved* painting these tape resist Easter eggs, so we turned those into a garland for our other window. We just cut egg shapes out of thick paper, stuck masking tape all over them and painted with water colors. Once they dried, we took off the tape and the masterpieces were revealed. If you look closely in this picture, you can see a woodpecker outside the window on our suet feeder!

But Eleanore’s favorite craft is this one. She sewed her own monster from an old sock. She was so proud of herself to stuff it, cut out the felt for the eyes and mouth and sew it all by herself!



My little girl is so grown up!

I am halfway there! 20 weeks today. I can’t believe in approximately another 20 weeks, we will be meeting a new little one.

Down to the wire…

December 16, 2008

I happened to glance at the calendar yesterday and panicked when I realized Christmas is NEXT week. Oh no. We have family coming in next Tuesday and Wednesday and my house is in shambles. Not to mention there’s food shopping to be done and knitting to complete. I’ve given up on gift knitting except for a few things for Eleanore.

So close to Christmas and yet I seem to be pattern hopping. I was thinking about buying Eleanore a santa hat, but Jason had the idea that I should knit one for her instead, so I immediately felt the need to cast on. After all, she’ll need the santa hat on Christmas, and not necessarily the sweater so soon. I’m pretty much writing the pattern as I go along, using 88 stitches. I want it to have room to grow so she can wear it again next year.
I’m not sure how I feel about the Riverstone sweater. I’m almost finished though, so I may as well complete it. It seems a little… off to me. I’m thinking a good blocking will change it’s appearance nicely though.
Remember my last post, where I mentioned that Eleanore wants nothing to do with solids? Well, overnight it seems she decided she enjoys food. She ate an entire ice cube of carrots and another of sweet potatoes yesterday. I was shocked!
She’s growing up so fast. Crawling and getting into everything, and she started a little bit of cruising along the coffee table the past few days, too! I can’t believe she’s already eight and half months old.

Finally caught it!

Eleanore has been smiling for a week or so now, but I’ve not been able to get a good picture of it until this morning.
