Ryan's first knitting project

My super amazing husband learned to knit in support of my fledgling knitting classes business, and tonight he cast off his first project.

Heidi thinks it's the awesomest thing ever.

Don't tell him I know about it. It's my Christmas present, and I have to pretend to forget about it by then so I can be surprised.

Christmas is right around the corner, and my son's due date isn't for another 8 weeks. There is therefore no rational reason why I should be casting on a blue blanket instead of frantically making presents.

And yet I am. Blame the hormones.

Mobile and independent

Milestone Monday

Heidi is officially a walker! After weeks of being convinced that walking was impossible without holding someone's hand, she has struck out on her own. Crawling is still faster, but walking allows her to reach for things like unattended yarn.

Also, manipulating. Last night she cried because I wouldn't let her play with my phone. Then she turned and grinned at Daddy, before she put her crying face back on for me. Toot.

Pants are overrated

And children in motion are hard to photograph.

In related news, I'm pretty sure my daughter is related to my oldest childhood friend. They share a certain tendency to put their pants on their heads. We'll see in some years whether Heidi also has the idea to pack for vacation by wearing seven pairs of underwear at the same time.
