So long, and thanks for all the views.
But only for a week. We've packed up everything (don't worry, we're still short the kitchen sink), and we're leaving today at 4:30 for Myrtle Beach. I've never been there myself, but my parents have a time share there and love it. I'm really looking forward to our "vacay". We're going to be spending the week there with Nana and Grandpa, who also have a time share there. I can't wait! We realized last night that we haven't had a vacation since Disney. Yup, March 2006! Phew, this is much needed. Of course I managed to get sick this week. Both the throw-up kind and the head cold kind. Right now, my head feels like it is in a vice. I'm a little uneasy about taking anything because of the nursing, but I figure the stress of being sick is probably worse than whatever would pass to her, so I'm going to give in and call the doctor.
Before I go, I would like to leave you with a few things.
Thaya coming out on top after 5 days of no poop. Read about it here.
Pattern: Pinwheel Sweater
Yarn: Peruvian Highland Wool in the same colorway as Anny Purls
Needles: US 10 (groan)
Started March 21, 2007 // Finished July 30, 2007
Note: Still a little too big for munchkin :)
Steph had her Bridal Shower last Saturday. We had such a good time. It was the start of Thaya's poop strike, but I won't hold it against you, Steph :) I love this picture, Thaya loves her so much, she is so amazing with kids (of all ages!). It's nice to have people in your life who you can really trust with your baby (and everything else, of course). I'm not sure what Thaya is looking at in this picture, but she is really diggin' it, whatever it is. Maybe it was that fun hat that Steph was wearing earlier...
I know I promised a picture of the sweater I made for Matt. I took one, but it's not on this camera! You'll just have to trust me.
And finally, a question. Have you ever started a project and proceeded to completely forget about it? Apparently I did. I was packing up my "knitting kits" for my trip this week (if you want your life to be more organized, have a baby - it may be messier, you may be covered in milk and pureed pears, but you'll be stickin' to a tight itinerary, thats for sure), and I discovered that I started the Matinee Coat with the never ending supply of Baby Cashmerino that I have leftover from the Shawl I made after my appendectomy. I guess I can finish it during the 13 hour drive to SC :)
And, since not all of you will stop over at Thaya's Blog, I'd like to ask here too... when you started your babyies on food, what were there favorite fruits and veggies? Thaya sure loves the pears we've been giving her!
See you on the other side of next week!
