5 months old

Yarn Along

Holly turned FIVE months old 2 weeks ago and to ‘celebrate’ (you really celebrate differently as a parent!) I cast on my first post-pregnancy project. Its the Young Einstein cardigan by Julia Stanfield. Its taken me two weeks to reach the sleeve seperation stage but I’m finally there and it actually looks like a future cardigan now. Joining in with Ginny and her Yarn Along. The book is my current reading. Hairy Maclary. Daily.

Holly is growing like mad and she has a tooth! Shes eating solids and is thoroughly unimpressed by them. Shes tall and thin unlike her short, fat parents. Whew! She was into rolling over for a while but now can’t be bothered. Instead she humps around the room on her back. This is my attempt to take a photo of her smiling under the coffee table. She has a habit of looking like a deer in headlights the second she sees the camera. (Ignore how badly I need to vacuum. I hardly dare to breathe loudly when she finally falls asleep these days. Shes hard work that girl!)

    Aah, gorgeous girl! Clever you! The cardigan looks good too. 🙂 I’ve always wanted to try knitting down the way. My baby is now 5 and a half and she reads to me instead. Thank God for the hard words or I’d never get a go…

    What an elegant young lady she’s growing in to! Well done, you three!

  4. wow, 5 months! hairy maclary is great. We borrow them from the library so often that I really just should buy them. I’m loving the colour of her new cardi, gorgeous. Meh, vacumings over rated:)
