So Much to Blog!

I've finally gotten my act in gear and gone through some of my photos - but then I realized that if I tried to fit them all into one blog post, it would be a little insane. So I'll have to wait patiently and spread out all of the fun stuff and hopefully manage to update more than once in a blue moon!

First up - I finished another pair of socks for S! He has been slowly-but-surely wearing holes into his "happy maevie socks," so I'm trying to keep up his sock-drawer supply. These are basic 2x2 rib.

We've also been trying to enjoy the lovely fall weather we've been having - a few weekends ago (not last weekend - last weekend was RHINEBECK!!) - we went to Great Falls and enjoyed a lovely hike along the C&O Canal. Being 7+ months pregnant, I was (of course) hungry when we got there, so I made S and Abby eat a hot dog to keep me company...

And later that same weekend, I made Abby and S try out our "new" rocking chair. We picked it up from my parents' house and gave it a good clean - it's the rocking chair that my mom used when my brother and I were babies. In her words - "it's seen a lot of rocking in its day!" I'm thrilled that we'll be able to use it with our Little Monster. Oh, and in case you're wondering, Abby approved of the rocking. She passed out and took a nice long nap in S' lap.

And despite my being 7+ months pregnant, neither fuzzle is totally on board with the idea that their lap is quickly disappearing. Cricket has resorted to sleeping under my chin, and Abby... well, Abby just improvises.

Abby also understands the strict rules we have in our house - no fuzzles on the bed (with a few minor exceptions, like if they look "cute" or "comfy"). So I think it is DEFINITELY against the rules for her to take her treat, run upstairs, and proceed to have "breakfast in bed."
