Best toy

This ball popper has been a firm favourite for 9 months. I adore watching that look of total concentration.

Again. Waiting to be released. Foxy making good use of the toys. I have told him this is fine as long as he stays well for the next 11 weeks. Hmm.

Now that Nearest & Dearest and I both have a day with Foxy, we can't help but compete. Unfairly, N & D can go to Grandmas. Me, I have resorted to an expensive impulse buy. He is loving his new ambulance! I have some new art supplies for this afternoon. I am so winning.

Foxy's tantrums have reached new heights. Ignoring works, but my preference is prevention. A flashpoint has been having his hands and face wiped. I finally had an idea.

Peace has been restored. (I know, I'm slow on the uptake.)

Cousin M

Welcome to the world cousin M!

Is she beautiful or what? She was born at 11pm-ish on the 10th. Her Mum said no to an epidural in the hopes that the baby would come before 9-11, and it worked. (For the record, she said she would NOT forego an epidural again -- love her.)

They didn't know what colour they were having, and I must say that my knitterly heart skipped a beat when I heard it was a girl. I pulled out some left-over cashmere and produced this:

I'm rather pleased with it. It is the heartfelt pattern X 5, with yarn threaded through. The only modification I made was to knit on smaller needles and not bother with the felting.

Socatots started up again today, hurrah! Foxy is getting some practice in on the new lawn:

This week we had our garden cleared, leveled, and turfed. I'm thrilled with the result!

Made some very yummy snickerdoodles. Foxy now knows that the organic-sweetened-with-grape-juice cardboard biscuits he was getting are crap.
