Weekend of baby walking, knitting and Passover preparations

This weekend was very busy for all of us in Angel Land. We had a 50th birthday party for our neighbor Saturday. The party was very nice. We were able to see many of the people who had become strangers over the winter months. NHL went with us, but we brought JSL to stay with Nana and Papa. He went there a sweet baby who could crawl and get into mischief. He was returned to us a determined child who wanted to walk holding on to anything and everything. He learned to walk with a ride on toy. Nana and Papa actually gave him his birthday present early and he is in LOVE with it. Photos to come later (no time to edit now). The nice thing we just keep him up and walking and he gets lots of energy out easily. Unfortunately it means his hands are higher and able to get into more. 

I changed my mind, here is a sneak peek. . .

Decisions. . . decisions. . . decisions. . .

 *ACK*  – My baby is growing up way too quickly!

Before the weekend I finished a washcloth that I had promised NHL when he was sick. He asked me to make him something new and selected one that looked like Snoopy (free pattern found here). This is what it looked like when I was finished.

This morning the last rows of another knitting group were revealed. Once again ten rows were given daily and at the end everyone has the same great cloth. This one was from Shirley’s Knitting Knook Group on Yahoo and designed by Melanie of Lil Knit of This & That. This was the first KAL of the new group and is adorable. I believe I saw that Shirley called it Showers in Spring, but not sure what the official name is.

NHL went out for the morning/afternoon with Nana and Papa. While they did this we went to purchase Passover groceries since it is just around the corner. We spent an obscene amount of money on kosher for Passover products. Although our receipt showed that we saved $30 – I did not smile. The only part I was happy about was our deal on diapers. The store had a deal on big boxes of Pampers for $19.99. I had a P&G $2.00 coupon and the grocery store was doubling P&G coupons today. Thanks to this I was able to get JSL 72 diapers for $16 – not too shabby!

After putting away groceries and eating lunch, we went to pick up NHL and set up my parents new wireless printer. When we came back home I was set to dry the load of laundry that I put in this morning. Little did I know that I would take on another project. While putting things away I noticed that JSL barely has any clothing that actually fits. I hauled out all of the containers of 0-12 month items, put things away and took some out. Then I went and brought the 18-24 month things up. I decided to put all of those things into the wash. Then I made sure that everything that was 24 month and 2T was ready to grab easily for later in the summer. I certainly got a work out going up and down the stairs to the basement more times than I can remember.

Randoms thoughts:

  • My baby is going to be one in just over a month – WAHHHHHHH!
  • Plans need to be made and set for the 1st birthday party that we will be having on Mother’s Day.
  • Passover is coming way too quickly. . . I am NOT ready for this.
  • I want to knit tonight, but I think I am too tired. I am working on a back scrubber for JL (he actually requested this).
  • New Moon is sitting and gathering dust waiting for me to read.
  • Wednesday I am going to NHL’s Seder at school – it should be so cute!
  • Thursday JSL goes to the dentist. Although he has been before they are counting this as his first official visit.
  • NHL is having problems breathing again (he is winded just talking). He will likely need to go to a specialist to figure out the cause and to help us treat it successfully.
  • Who Needs Sleep by Barenaked Ladies is my theme song – really it is!

    Woe what a cutie… My “baby” grandson will be 4 in September. Time sure flies. He calls us Nana and Papa too, and I love it.

    I love that Snoopy cloth, was that your own design?

  • TheAngelForever says:

    Aunt Kathy: Thanks for stopping by my blog! My boys love their Nana and Papa. We are so lucky to live close by so they can see each other at least once a week.

    Ooops! I knew I forgot to do something when I made the post. I edited now and have a link to the Snoopy pattern that is from Knitwits Heaven. Someday I would love to design, but this is one from there and I love it.

    I love those washcloths! I’ve always admired people who could knit. Maybe it’s because I just couldn’t figure out how to do it myself! LOL!

  • Kim says:

    How is there even a question between New Moon and knitting? You must find out what happens with Edward and Bella and Jacob. It is soooooooooooooo good! Enjoy! Don’t let the dust gather too long or it’ll be due back at the library. :D

  • TheAngelForever says:

    kailani: Thanks so much :) Knitting really is not too hard to do (basics wise), especially with a good teacher who is around to help point you in the right direction.

    Kim: lol – too funny! Here is the deal, I can knit in the near or total dark with a sleeping kid/husband, but I can not do that with reading. Plus I can watch television and knit, no go with the reading. I am going to try to get some of it read today since I know the clock is ticking for me to return it. I am anxious to see what happens in the book since I have tried to read it several times since I finished Twilight and never got to with things that keep popping up.

    Our babies birthday must be pretty close since mine will be a year next month too! Where does the time go? Cute washcloths, by the way.

    Oh and I tagged you for a little meme…

  • TheAngelForever says:

    Elaine: My little guy turns one May 14th – so it is right around the corner. So much to do and so little time. Or is that too little motivation?! ;) I replied about the meme on your blog already.
