I'm still working away at the Spring Forward socks. I'm still only on the first sock, it's taking a while but hey at least I'm still knitting.

We were gone for a week up to my parent's house in Owen Sound. It was a crazy week because my mom looks after my sister's 2 kids while she goes to school for hairdressing and Rowan was really fussy the entire time too. It was still really good to see them though as always. I got a free hair cut out of the deal as well. :-) Paisley adores playing with her little cousin Reece who is almost 8 months now. I can't wait until Rowan's this age, Paisley will be great with her.

There hasn't been much going on these days though. It's hard to believe that Rowan's nearing two months old now and she's getting bigger every day. She looks alot like her daddy I think. That's about all for now but I'll leave you with a few pictures of Paisley & Rowan together and this damn bunny slippers that my sister gave me for Rowan that Reece outgrew. I think I'm obsessed with baby feet. *LOL*

Summer Days

We've been spending quite a bit of time outdoors these days. It's just so easy, Paisley plays with all of her friends and Rowan sleeps like a little baby in her stroller lounging in the shade.

I have been knitting a bit. I'm still working on the blanket for my friend although I haven't made much progress on it. I find blanket knitting hot in the summer. I also just had to cast-on for another pair of socks. The Spring foward socks from kitty are a real easy knit and I don't really think they'll take long to knit up.

This weekend Ron was home and Saturday we took Paisley to Ron's company picnic. She had a blast there. She got to swim, got her face painted and got some air bushed tattoos, went in the bouncers and even won a humongous watermelon the scavenger hunt. I was really quite impressed! Then on Sunday Ron took Paisley out to get her haircut. We had a rough week when I found lice in her hair and although she did not have them bad, we both agreed that it would be easier just to get her hair cut, plus she's not the biggest fan of having her hair brushed or done up all cute anyway and her hair was always hanging in her face because she wouldn't leave her barrettes in. I'm still not quite sure where she got them because none of the kids in the neighbourhood have them, but we have it under control now. Uggh, I was having a crappy week last week, well actually it's been quite the month. *LOL* I'm heading for Owen Sound this weekend for sometime away, I should be nice. I'd like to head up to Sauble Beach with my sister and the kiddies one of the days. It's about 20 minutes from Owen Sound. I'm really looking forward to going, I just have to get through this week first and it's going alot better than last week (so far)! :-)

Rowan is 1 month old

Wow! Today Rowan turned 1 month old! It's been a whirlwind month, that's for damn sure. We are all still adjusting to having a baby around the house, it's taking more time then I thought it would. Caring for two children is a challenge, but I'm sure I'll get the swing of things soon. I'm finding it hard delegating my time with them, especially with having a fussier baby. Kira, a good friend of mine that I worked with at Shoppers stopped by tonight for a visit. She's on mat leave right now as well. Her little guy Robbie is 6 months now but I guess he was also fussy baby and she said having a sling saved her life so she brought me one over because she happened to have 3 of them. I have Rowan in it as I type this post out, it's neat. I haven't been able to find my snugly yet, so this will do and is maybe a little easier to have on then the snugly anyway. It's called "the uppy guppy" and I love it so far, it's awesome. Despite her being very congested/wheezy today (we're actually going to the doctors tomorrow morning again after speaking with the on-call doctor tonight on the phone) she's out like a trout in it. Poor thing wouldn't sleep more then 10 minutes at a time all day today. Rhonda even took Paisley for a sleepover so I could have a break but I didn't even get a nap in. I sure hope this little cold passes soon, I feel so bad for my baby girl.
Well she seems settled enough now, I think it's time to get some sleep, I've lots of things to do tomorrow.
If your reading Kira...thanks a million, she seems to love it!! The onesie Rowan is wearing was a gift from Robyn at knit and purl mama, so I want to send out another thank-you to her as well, it's too cute!
