I shared this photo on Instagram, but the caption (“full lap … full heart”) doesn’t tell the whole story.
First off – it’s huge that Holly and Charlie are both snuggled in the same chair (even with Marmie wedged in between). And the book we’re reading is new (we also read this one) – the latest in the crayon series from Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers. I bought these (actually pre-ordered, way back in August; they were delivered last week) for Charlie to give to his little brother; it’s only fair – right?! – that he gets to read them first (we still need to wrap them).
They’re board books, so I think they’ll be sturdy – and I’ll bet Charlie will be able to “read” them out loud soon…just like I did today. Also – note the afghan. Yep, snuggle weather!
Naptime proceeded much as usual. Milk, two stories and then two plus hours of sleep for Charlie…and knitting for me. This photo (which I also shared on Instagram) pretty much sums up that part of the day.
But I didn’t share this one. after finishing round 51, and putting all the stitches on waste yarn for a try-on.
Decided it’s long enough – and I’ve now started the 2″ of ribbing at the bottom of the body. Tomorrow there will be sleeves!
