|A big "Happy Father's Day" to all the fathers, grandfathers, foster parents, step-fathers, and any man who makes a positive difference in a child's life. You rock!
In honor of Daddy's Day, I'll share with you some photos of Yannick and Jakob at the park on Saturday evening.
...watching the planes go by. Jakob HAS to stop, stare and usually point EVERY time a plane goes by. He loves them!
...watching a squirrel run up a tree.
...and exploring the "jungle" pathway near our house.
We had a really fun time at the park, and I was so happy to watch them together that I didn't mind pushing the empty stroller around. Honest. ;)
We hit a little milestone last week- Jakob is no longer in his bucket! He's officially tall enough to be out of it, AND is past the weight maximum, so I brought him over to the police station and had a nice officer install his new car seat for me. It's also his first time being forward-facing in the car, and it took him a day or so to get the confused look off of his face.
I knew the Mary Maxim submission would be coming to an end soon (I have to mail it on Monday), so I started pulling out my supplies for the next project. These are my two yarn choices for Eden's shrug:
The first is some pink Cindy Cotton Look that I inherited from my grandmother. I have 2 huge cakes of this stuff, and no ideas for a good project. I thought it would be really sweet for the shrug, and if the gauge works out, this is my first choice.
As a second option, I have more of my seemingly-never-ending supply of dusty rose Patons Decor. I swear this stuff seems to multiply in my stash. I'm sure the gauge will work for this, but it would make a much different garmet, much heavier and "wintery", and I hope I don't have to use it.
I'm sure I have a ton of other options in my stash too, should neither of these work. But I'll be swatching tonight and will have a better idea of what will work later.
