There isn’t a spot on the couch. Apparently the camera lens is dirty!
We knew our sweet Abigail was growing and her doctor’s appointment on Friday (2/13/09) confirmed just that!
Abigail weighed 26lbs 11ozs and measured 29.75 inches tall! She’s also got at least 6 teeth. When we stick our fingers in there to count they usually get bitten/chewed on so it’s not safe to check very often!
Sorry for the blurry/grainy picture but it is a good representation of our evenings. Abigail loves to crawl off our laps and explore everything!
Our HIGHS for the week:
Terry & I got to spend a few hours out by ourselves for our anniversary on Sunday while Grandpa Mike watched Abigail.
Tuesday night’s Ticket to Ride connection group was awesome. I got to hold a new little baby and meet a couple brand new to our church.
Our LOWS for the week:
The auditors were at work this week. I felt very stressed because it was important to take care of them before doing my normal work because they are onsite for such a short time. I’m so glad I got to come home to the smiling faces of Terry & Abigail every night!
Abigail turned nine months old yesterday. We are very excited that she is growing so fast.
The last three months have brought many exciting changes in her life, including:
My Finished Objects during January: 2 pairs of socks, 2 hats and I sewed the buttons on a sweater for Abigail that has been otherwise finished for a year!
My mom’s socks using Vermont O-wool:
My niece’s socks (if anyone knows her please don’t tell her I knit her socks!)
I used less than one skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepard Sport in Sweetie for a child’s shoe size 1 (an 8 yr-old).
We’ve been wearing them constantly in this cold weather so I haven’t had a chance to take a picture of them without a model. This picture is a little preview of our weekend–more to come soon!
I used Cascade Eco for Terry’s and made the large with no modifications. I did one extra crown increase (past the large size) on mine since the Nashua Vignette seemed to be knitting up a little smaller than I planned (what’s a swatch? 🙂 ) and I was determined to finally have a hat that would cover my ears!
Sorry no picture of the sweater with the buttons attached! The buttons are little white flowers. Abigail was napping while I worked on this and I decided I had better measure it to make sure it wasn’t going to be too small for her to wear. I knit the 6 month size (according to my prior post) and the sweater measures bigger around than the 12 month and in between the 6 & 12-month for the length. As soon as I finished I put it on Abigail and ran out the door to a Sunday afternoon party last week. I had to roll the sleeves up a little and it is pretty big around on her too. I’m so glad it will fit her for a while longer!
