Ronan – The Model

Before Ronan was born, Sara knit him an adorable hat.  I snapped some shots of him wearing it today.  It fits with a little room to grow, so it’ll be perfect for this fall/winter!

Edited 012The pattern is I Heart Cables for those of you who might be interested in making one yourself.

Edited 025Sara used Malabrigo Rios (she knows me so well!) in “Paris Night.”  Ronan must like Rios, too, because he didn’t mind wearing the hat.  In fact, he fell asleep wearing it, as is evidenced in the above photos.

I’ve been trying really hard to improve my photography skills.  Through a stroke of luck, I was able purchase a few more photography tools, and I’m anxiously awaiting their arrival so I can play with them.  The most important is Lightroom 5, which I’m DYING to use.  If anyone wants to pass along some tips and tricks or recommend some sites or books, I’m listening!  😀

Ronan was born October 4th, 2014 at 8:24pm, weighing 7 lbs and measuring 19.25 inches. 😀

Due to some complications (suspected cholestasis), I was induced three weeks early.  Thankfully, I was able to have my second VBAC and didn’t have to recover from major surgery while caring for three kids under three.

Knitting has been next to nonexistent over the past couple of weeks, so this post will have to tide you over until I can get back to being productive!

What a pleasant surprise! We really thought we had another girl on the way. Now I’ve got to change all my knitting plans!

I’ll have to wait til next week to get the results of the scan, but the tech said everything looked fine. What a relief! 😀

The Weekend of Eva

Last weekend Eva turned two.  I am DEVASTATED!  I swear she was just born yesterday!  We started celebrating with trick or treating, then jumped right into an intimate party at home, and topped it all off with the trip to the aquarium the following day for a friend’s birthday party. Last year we had a huge party since it was her first birthday.  This time we just had immediate family members over for pizza and cake.  Our house is way too small to hold a big bash!

Eva dressed as a koala for her first trick or treating experience.  Daddy was a tree, Mommy was a zookeeper, and Kirsi was a tiny zebra wearing a pink hat.  So cute!  Eva LOVED trick or treating. She toddled away from each house yelling, “CANDY!”  I guess it is pretty exciting when people give you lots of candy.

Image

Immediately following trick or treating, we rushed home to start partying.  Eva dined on pizza, candy, ice cream, and cake.  She then tore open all of her presents and showed them off to anyone who would marvel at them with her.

The next day we headed to a birthday party for Eva’s friend, who was born less than a week before her.  The party took place at a semi-local aquarium. The place was definitely geared toward kids.  There was a limited number of exhibits, which is perfect for little ones with short attention spans.  They also had the most “touch” pools I’ve ever seen, four in all.  Three of those four pools were at toddler level.  (Yay for not having to dangle a heavy child over water!)  Eva had a blast and spent most of her time touching sea creatures.

All four of us were pretty exhausted after all the excitement.  I’m very much looking forward to vegging out tomorrow!

Family Photo Thursday

I promise there’s been some knitting happening. Is just been too boring to share. In an attempt to avoid finishing the Knotty Gloves, I’ve been knitting up a bunch of dishcloths for socking stuffers. Brilliant idea, I know. 🙂

Anyway, without further adieu, here are some pictures from our week:

We had to drag this wagon full of walnuts up and down the street. It was a pretty big deal.

Such a big girl!

Eva wanted to go "night night" in Mommy's bed. She wanted "Kirsi night night, too" and "Mommy night night." That was cozy for the 30 seconds it lasted.
