On the needles: a little gray wool vest for Silas. I'm trying to take the pattern one row at a time so I don't get scared and run away. It's knit from the top down, in the round and, so far, has been going really fast.
Reading: Still nothing of note for me. I have, however, been meaning to share some of our favorite birthday books. I got these out a couple of weeks before Silas' first birthday celebration and put them into our regular reading rotation.
Another Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown: Sweet rhymes about the "important thing about being one." It continues through age six recording the milestones of each age and ending with the importance of being yourself.
Birthday Zoo by Deborah Lee Rose: This one is a favorite of both mama and papa. The zoo animals plan a party for a little boy's birthday. Adorable.
Birthday Presents by Cynthia Rylant: Parents remember their little one's birthdays from age one through six. This one makes me cry every single time.
On the Day You Were Born by Debra Frasier: Celebrating the individual, we read how the earth prepared for the coming of your very special little one. This one is a little too New Age-y for Steve, but I think it's incredibly sweet.
Linking up with Ginny at Small Things.
