Not Quite Once a Day
Well, we've made it to Thanksgiving with Oma and Opa in Minnesota. Baby A took her first plane ride and fell asleep after about 40 minutes of fussing... but what with the "get there 2 hours early" and "pay to check any baggage, including a portable crib" and the "stand in huge lines at security"... and my personal favorite, TAKE OFF A BABY'S SHOES AT SECURITY.
Because that's the new terrorist threat... explosives in BABY SHOES.
So anyway, we all made it to Oma and Opa's, and have been having the best time. Oma gave Baby A a cookie, Opa let her play with his glasses, and they gave her an old cell phone (battery removed) because they felt bad that she couldn't play with the "real" cell phones. In other words, they have been spoiling her rotten, and she has been loving it.
They have quite a lot of experience spoiling grandkids... here's a picture of Baby A and all of her cousins. She is the 10th grandkid on this side of the family (and there's 1 great-grandbaby!)
And there has been a bit of knitting while Oma and Opa have been Baby A-sitting.... I'm working away at the back of my grey cardi, and am making decent progress:
I'll probably be ready to start the shaping for the armscyes by the time I get home, which is good because I didn't bring the pattern with me. I just know I need to keep going until I get to row 93... I'm on row 47 now, but I probably won't get much knitting time tomorrow or Friday.
