Settling In, and a Completed BSJ

We are all three settling in, and getting into some sort of a routine. I know it takes awhile. Here are some things we have learned:

1. Wet diapers are apparently quite comfortable.

2. Dirty diapers, on the other hand, are not to be tolerated for even one second.

3. It is wise to cover the plumbing at all times. A millisecond of non-vigilance leads to cleaning up the changing table. Again. (Yes, I know boys do this. But really, this much? Nearly every time? It's sort of impressive, really.)

4. Vitamin drops do not taste good. I am dreading the future on this front. Right now, all he can do is cry a little. In a while, I'm afraid it's going to be worse than baptizing a cat.

5. I like my blankie from my online aunties. (Grandma liked it, too.)

6. The sling is a Good Thing. Even though it does not necessarily induce sleepiness. (He tends to stare up at me for a long time after he's all bundled up. It's pretty funny, and the picture does not do it justice. Though it does show off his delightful pointy little chin, does it not?)

I did complete my first BSJ. The morning before Levi was born, in fact. (I have not done much knitting since.) I am excited for him to be big enough to wear it, and I will surely post pictures of that! In the meantime, here's the finished product, minus a model.

I really enjoyed this project, and I'd like to do another. This was a worsted weight on size 6 needles (I think), and I may do a worsted on size 8 for a slightly larger size. I have great grand ideas of doing a coordinated set for some twins that are yet to be born. We'll have to see how things go, and how much knitting time I can carve out of my days in the future!

Oh my, what a darling little elfin! Yes, boys will squirt you every chance they get. Because they can. :)

I LOVE the sling pic with those eyes looking up at you.

The only problem with these pictures: you really can't squeeze 'em.

his spraying is amazing. I don't think Christopher ever got me and I changed plenty a diaper with him. This boy seems to have control and waits for a drop in your guard, although it's been a few days now since he's caught me napping...

WOW!He is a cutie!! Got to love those boys though. Wait till he can stand in the tub and watch himself pee (they love that).
