They're Cousins

Grandpa had some extra Southwest points which he generously shared so Lucy and I could visit for a little girl's weekend! I almost didn't go because of a bout of mastitis ( even lactation consultants get it...) but I'm so glad I did. It was SO QUIET there! And the company was great! We miss them already!

New Little Sweater

I went to all the trouble of knitting this cute little sweater out of fancy schmancy yarn for Lucy and this is what she thought of it...
And apparently she liked it better after a little milk :) Thank goodness, right! I used sock yarn and tiny needles on this thing :). By the way, the pattern is Wee Wildflower by Alana Dakos and it was knit in Shalimar yarns Breathless in the American Beauty color way. It was knit with US size 1,2, and 3 needles.

Happy Belated Labor Day!

To celebrate Labor Day, we went into DC. It had been awhile but we had so much fun, we can't wait to go back. We started out with a picnic lunch at the sculpture garden, followed by some fun at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, followed by a visit to the Washington Monument and Lincoln memorial.


A few short weeks ago this hat engulfed my little tiny head!

Not quite sure...

What's in the air today, but someone keeps trying to wear Lucy's clothes...

Orange You Glad...

It's a 3 day weekend?! Today we met my cousin, his wife, and their 2 kiddos (#3 due to arrive in 2 weeks!!!) for brunch at the Airways Inn in Frederick. It was so fun! It is right at the airport and we were lucky enough to see several tiny planes take off and land! And, look at all of those orange and yellow shirts! Maybe we all needed some sunshine- it has been a rainy weekend here! After we got home, no one napped, so the boys had a little Mario Kart tourney and Lucy and I spent the afternoon nursing while knitting! The boys ate out playing football and Lucy and l are doing some more nursing... I'm hoping this is a growth spurt and not her new routine! Tomorrow we are hoping to go see the dinosaurs at the museum of natural history. If its not too rainy, we might try to see some monuments, too! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
