Where Did December Go?So I didn't blog at all in December. Wow. So a quick recap - Baby A got SICK with a nasty cold, complete with emergency room visit in the middle of the night because she was coughing so hard she was throwing up. She's fine, there was nothing wrong except for a nasty cold, but still, scary stuff! So once Baby A kicked the cold, she passed it on so that I could enjoy almost 2 weeks of feeling like crap. What fun! And then, feeling left out, Baby A promptly got an ear infection. So that was a super fun month.
But in-between all of the crappy colds and ear infections, Baby A turned 1!! She didn't seem to mind that she had to share her birthday with that "Jesus" guy, and had a great time opening Christmas presents in the morning, taking a nap, and then opening birthday presents in the evening. And there was cake.
There was also a little teeny bit of snow here in December - we had about 20 inches in our yard! Baby A seemed to like to eat it, and wanted to crawl around more, but since it was over her head, she had to stick to the sections S shoveled clear.
It has been quite a challenge to keep Baby A warm on her puppy walks - she takes off her mittens, so we dug out her snow suit, but she's pretty much totally outgrown that. So we bought a new winter coat and a new snow suit which will hopefully help - she has grown so much in the last week or two that nothing is fitting her!
So on the really cold nights, we've resorted to "piles of blankets and jackets." It's seemed to work so far!
And there has most definitely been knitting - I finished 2 sweaters! Next up is supposed to be a cardigan for S, but he hasn't had time to decide on a design, so I'm filling the gap with a sweater for Baby A. I'm trying to use up some beautiful silk that I was gifted ages ago - not sure how much is on the skein, not really sure what to use it for... so I thought I would pair it with some cream cotton and make Baby A a little "swing coat". I'm loving it so far... not that I've had much time to work on it!
