I’m home with Nora, who’s been running a fever since last night. She’s in very good spirits though, so we’re watching a few movies and also playing and catching up on chores. It feels like a bonus day with my toddler though! It’s so fun to snuggle and spend time with her. It amazes me how capable toddlers can be. Nora’s cognitive development amazes me; though she doesn’t have too broad a vocabulary yet (maybe something like fifty or sixty words) she understands everything I say.
Since I posted about needing to relax, we’re doing much better on that front. Our weekend involved some socializing and fun activities (including a neighborhood circus!) but we weren’t running all over creation to cram as much as we could into two days. I have to admit, it was hard to not want to run here, there, and everywhere!
With my stance that we need to relax a bit more, I’ve been spending time on a baby blanket for our July arrival. I had started one a month ago that I was knitting, but after looking at it, I decided it wasn’t my favorite pattern. So I started over and am using this crochet pattern from Attic 24 that I printed and stashed away nearly three years ago. I’m using up my stash of blue and green yarns from Vanna’s Choice. So far I absolutely adore the pattern!
