Jen, it's gorgeous! I'm totally going to make one for Brynnie, and one as a gift for a friend. The tassled hood is adorable.
|My name is Jen - considering that I was born in the '70s in America, you could probably have guessed it!
Well it had to have been either Jen or Amy!
I think our names were #1 and #2 for 1972-75 or something like that. I didn't grow up knowing many Amys, but now I live in a town of 4000 people and I have FOUR friends named Amy all within walking distance of my house!
Welcome Kaspirant. Is the arch the St. Louis arch?
Michelle, so glad Noah felt better for his big day! I don't know what magneatos are, but they sound cool. By the way, I love the picture of him kissing his Christmas tree.
Barcelona, I was going to tell you, Brynn is so picky about eating if *I* offer her the food, but hilariously, if she can stab it with a fork, she will eat just about anything. I was really amused yesterday at lunch because I made vegetable soup and gave her pieces of carrot, potato, pea, and green bean. If I tried to just pop a little bite in her mouth, she'd shake her head no, BUT if I just put it on her try and let her fork it herself, she would eat it! She was so happy and is actually doing really well with the fork already. It's so funny! So at dinner last night, she was trying to fork little pieces of turkey cold cuts, and when she couldn't manage it the traditional way, she just picked up a piece of turkey with one hand and stuck it onto the end of the fork, and then ate it.
Anyway I'm so tired this morning! I think tooth #6 must be making it's way up quickly because Brynn was *attached* to my boobs last night. My nipples are so sore this morning.
Oh, and I don't know what is going on down south, but I think my period may be coming back. I had bad menstrual cramps last night and then a bit of pink blood (that's the first time I've had anything like that since she's been born), but then nothing overnight. So I dunno, but it's weird.
Well off to feed the hungry baby.
On the menu: oatmeal, eaten with a fork, of course!
