During my pregnancy with Noah, I religiously took pictures of my growing belly each week. Earlier this week I realized guiltily that I haven't taken a single belly shot in this pregnancy so far. Oops. So, here you go. This was taken Tuesday at 17 weeks. I thought it would be more interesting if the kids were posed cutely next to me, but of course they had different ideas.
I met with my friends Shawn and Allison earlier this week for a swap. I brought Shawn this knitted mug cozy (which I was actually planning to give her for our Christmas swap, but didn't finish in time).
I also knitted these little sachets, which I love. The yarn was dyed by me and Emma awhile back, and I put dried lavender in them so they'd smell yummy.
Lastly, I made these Valentine's Day towels (an idea I got from my friend Mary Beth), and these little zippered pouches.
In return, I got all these lovely goodies. Thanks for a great swap, ladies!
Yesterday was a beautiful, amazing, perfect day. We spent most of the day at the park, running around and enjoying the warm sun. I am so so so ready for spring. We have daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths coming up all over our yard. Last year I only gazed at them out the windows, but this year I am determined to brave the snakes and go out in the yard to cut some and bring them in. I am so thrilled about the arrival of spring that even the snakes are not going to deter me from enjoying it's loveliness.
