More pink?!

You'd think I liked the color or something....

I have a soon to be baby girl to knit for. Well I could go out and buy something but I'd rather use up some stash and use my talents. I love that I can make something out of a piece of string, and no one else will have that exact item.... Knitting Rocks! Anyways this is what I had as of yesterday, Last night (at knitting night) I finished one arm. But I think it is too short. The pattern doesn't give a length so I guessed. I think I'll end up ripping it out and adding an inch or so. I tried it on C and it didn't go down to her wrists. This pattern was super easy to follow, excluding the passive arm measurements. Its a seamless yoked baby sweater. No seams! Did I ever say that seaming is the least fun thing about knitting?!

Also today is Heathers birthday! So I with the suggestion from Amy, decided to make her cupcakes for knitting last night. Her favorite colors are brown, and pink. Hence the color of the frosting and sprinkles! I love making cupcakes...

L was a bit upset last night that I didn't let her eat one... but it was the best way to convince her to finish he breakfast this morning. Finish your eggs and you can have a cupcake... It worked, they both ate all of their eggs. I cut one in half and gave it to them... Nothing like a little sugar in the morning! That's not bad right?! I almost think its better than them having it after dinner right before going to bed.

The other night I was giving the older two a bath and C was
sitting in her bouncy seat right by the doorway. C loves baths, and seemed disappointed that she wasn't getting one two. I know she is only 5 months and is too young to seem disappointed about not getting one but i swear she was. Anyways... I thought why not throw her in too?! So I did, no I actually put her in and held her in place... ;0) She just laughed uncontrollably. She had a blast, having playmates in the tub! I love the sound of a baby gut laughing, too cute. I managed to get a picture while still holding her safely. Not the best pic but I was alone with 3 kids in the tub. Talk about multi-tasking! I love how all thee of them interact. Sure they (G & L) fight about not sharing all day long, but when you get down to it they really love each other, I love seeing them grow up together and bond the way they do!

Ok so C is 5 1/2 months old, when did that happen?! She is now rolling
over both form tummy to back and from back to tummy. She is sitting with support and is starting to balance by herself at times. She is eating some solids, baby cereal and fresh ripened bananas are her all time favorite! We've made apples too and I've started carrots at dinner time. She isn't too sure about the carrots. I make our own baby food, just cook whatever down till its super soft and then blend it up, put it into ice cube trays and voila, single servings of homemade baby food! A wonderful woman from my knitting group borrowed me some of her old cookbooks for making baby food! They are great and I can't wait to dig through them and get some new ideas! Of course C's got a while to go, one new food at a time...

Take care all,
knit happy!

Oh my, they are just too cute. And little C looks like the happiest baby ever. Those cupcakes look pretty yummy too. Mmmmm. I got your e-mail about SAM4 - hurray!!! I'm so glad you're with us. I'll forward your info to your hostess and she will send you an invite soon. :)

3 in the tub, rub-a-dub-dub. That is the nursery rhyme I remembered when you said they were all in the bath together. I cant remember the rest of it. I am sure that now they have had one bath together they will do it all the time. I love baby laughs too, the ones where they sound as though they are going to burst with happiness. They look so cute in there together. I love the seamless baby jacket too.

I'm pretty sure if I tried to handle a camera with ONE kid in the tub, the camera would end up taking a dunk. Such cuties!! C looks like a very happy baby. Love that little pink sweater.

Wheee! I've knitted that cardi a few times and lost the pattern! Thanks for finding it for me :-D

For a small baby, I usually make the sleeves just a mite shorter than the body from the underarm - if that helps.
