A sprinkle of this and that

How is it August?! And it is Friday! Hanging out with family and baking. That is the plan this weekend.

Off the needles

I (finally) finished a knitting project a bit ago. It is a pattern from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas called Mohair Bias Loop. The yarn is Malabrigo Baby Merino Lace in the color Velvet Grapes.

I'm still working on this sweater for tiny guy. I better finish it by fall or else he won't fit in it! I also must admit that I have not finished my summer t-shirt that I took a class to learn to knit. The class was really good and motivating. I just need to decide on what edging I want and finish it! Then I can wear it. :)

Planning for Frankie's first birthday is in full swing. As he is only one, there isn't much he understands about parties, so it is for the adults to celebrate. I do have some ideas in mind for entertaining him too.

Happy 10 months Smiley!

Frankie turned 10 months old! I cannot believe it. He has been out longer than in now. He is a light weight, the doctor told us to lay on the butter, literally. He eats what we eat for the most part AND then has ice cream after every meal.

He loves grilled cheese sandwiches. He screams for whole milk yogurt (Liberte brand). He noms up Plum Organics baby food (blueberry, pear, and purple carrots is his favorite flavor). He screams for our water bottles and loves drinking out of a straw. He self feeds everything, including avocado. He squishes it in his hands, eyebrows, nose, and sometimes in his mouth!

He loves to eat his maple cinnamon poofs and I think they make him smell like french toast. He enjoys cheerios, just like his dad. He loves pasta noodles with butter. He recognizes a Tillamoo square of cheese. He brushes his teeth (thanks Aunt Chris). He sometimes waves, smiles a lot, points and gestures for things he wants. We are working on clapping. He says a lot of dadadada and other nonsense but no words yet. We are still working on signing with him.

His sleeping is not consistent but neither is mine! He sort of plays ball. He isn't patient enough to get through many books, he wants to skip pages to get to the end. He almost has 4 teeth! He will bounce while standing when music is playing. He loves when dad plays the piano. I'm working on teaching him body parts and animal sounds. He is working on what sounds Ro Cat makes when he pulls on or squishes various body parts.

And as of Friday night, he walks!
