Time truly FLIES! Today Sprout turned 8 months! She is weighing in at 18 lbs now–a long way from the first time we saw her at 6 lbs . We all could not be happier with our lives. She was the missing piece that makes every moment, even the sleepless ones, worth living and smiling about.
She tries to really talk now; instead of crawling she prefers to roll to her target (belly-back-belly-back ); her hair is getting longer, she is becoming even more independent and loves to check into every drawer she finds open. She enjoys more blended solids, and got her own glass straw! (I will have to take a picture of that soon ). She is fascinated with my kitchen and knitting gadgets.
And knitting I have been . I used to knit a lot in the years gone, but become so preoccupied with everything else that have forgotten all about it… until Sprout came and reminded just how relaxing and fulfilling handmade creations can be.
Hubby has also become the lucky recipient of my knitting endeavors, ending up with a hat and a scarf.
Sprout loves it all, until it becomes too much of Mommy going crazy with a camera, then she gives me the look…
…which means that she is done and it is time to play.
It is true that there is no love like a parent’s love for a child–she made me realize just how deep and sacred that love can be.
