I finally made it through a round and a half of the pattern repeat for Silas' blanket! Who-hoo! I had hoped to have that second repeat completed by today, but such was not the case. I really need to cast on something small that I can complete in a week or two. This mama needs a little less delayed gratification. As for reading material, I'm still working my way through Home Economics and am gearing up to start Kitchen Literacy, two very domestic sounding titles if I do say so myself. (Head over to Small Things for more Yarn Along goodness.)
Silas has decided that 6:00 A.M. is an appropriate time to start the day. I disagree, especially after nights spent getting up every hour or two. I have a general no-speaking and minimal interaction rule during the night when we wake up for diaper changes and nursing; night time is for sleeping, not for conversation or playing. He challenges this more frequently now, however. It's really hard not to smile back and caress that little face when he locks eyes with me through the dim light and breaks in an ear-to-ear grin from atop the changing table. Throw in a coo or a little chuckle and I'm a goner.
