It's Been A While

For the last few weeks, I have been laid up with an annoying cold and cough. I haven't been productive so the blog fell by the wayside. Now I am feeling better and am excited that Blake will be turning one this weekend. He is getting new teeth all the time and tests the limits of everything man made and natural. I love how he can say "Da Da", but only when we aren't looking. Once we ask him to say it he gives us a proud smile and keeps his words to himself. It is only a matter of time before we have to ask him to stop talking.

Here are some photo updates.

The baby kicking bag I knit for my friend Dara. It is a wool and nylon mix from KnitPicks and is super soft. Blake's zebra is my faux baby model.

The waistband is a pretend cable (I will learn those someday).

Here is Andrew and Blake on St. Patrick's day holding the remaining cabbage after I used the other half to make corned beef and cabbage. Yummy.

We get a weekly veggie box from a place called Eating With The Seasons. I have decided to use canvas bags instead of their paper bags for our delivery. I used some remnants and sewed on an "H" to help my bag stand out from the rest.

Then when it was my friend Danika's birthday I decided to create one for her. Here is the front.

Here is the back.

I hope everyone enjoyed the rain and wind. The sun is out so Blake has enjoyed watching the neighbor boys play soccer outside. Today, they even let him play with the ball.
