babies are hard to photograph


I just realized I haven't blogged this week - shame on me! I guess having a new baby means I'm a little busy most days. By the way, here's a cute collage of photos we took of Lev the other day. It took us three days to get them, because every other day he was too sleepy, too grumpy, or too messy. We're having a few of the photos printed to send to friends and family. It seems a little strange to be getting actual hard copies of the photos, since nearly everything we take is just kept in digital format. But grandparents like to have something they can put in a frame (we're getting a copy of the collage for ourselves, because it's just too cute!) He has such an expressive face, although he usually makes all his really funny faces as he's falling asleep. However, his eyes are closed then, so we can't take such good photos (but I find him endlessly entertaining!)

Thanks for all the lovely comments about the sock pattern and the TV show. Hopefully any of you who knit the socks don't find any mistakes. If anyone out there does know how to put a copy of my segment of the show on youtube, please let me know!

Now back to knitting! I'm working on a shawl, which has be going for several months now. I'm just not used to knitting something so large, and I get bored with it after a dozen rows or so. Today I decided to add a bit to the pattern, so I have something more interesting to look forward to every 5 pattern repeats. If I can stop myself from starting any new projects, I might just get the shawl done in another month or so...

My daughter is 21 months old and she still fascinates me. I love to watch her sleep, she looks just like a baby again. They are a lot of hard work and bring you to tears, but I still wouldn't be without her and I would do it all over again! (Just not quite yet!)

Well, is there anything as heart warming, than a face of a little person? So cute and so expressive.

There is no doubt of that. I never try to wait for taking photo of babies,
