41 Weeks

Sean decided the other day that he was taking over my father's company (since my dad was out of town) and decided that he needed to sit in the CEO's chair! My sister snapped the photo and emailed it to my dad. Too cute for words!

Sean is 41 weeks old today. He's such a big boy now. He's not interested in puree anymore (I have a ton of jars that I'll return because they're still closed and he's not interted in "mush" anymore).

I finally finished - ON TIME - actually - JUST in the knick of time - my father-in-law's hat & scarf set. (I worked on it all day today). I LOVE the finished results... so very happy with it. Here are some photos - the details will follow at the end of this post.

Above is how it looks like unrolled. You do 4 inches of ribbing so that it folds up to a 2 inch rib.

And here is the finished Irish Hiking Scarf, all displayed nicely for picture purposes.

I even put it all together in a nice fancy box, with a memory card holder that I got him for his camera. The gift was very well received, and I am so happy.

Congrats! on finishing the hat and scarf on time!!! They look great!

The pictures of Sean are just so adorable and you look great too!!

Jenn said...

The Hat looks GREAT!
Good Luck in returning the baby food. Most stores here won;t take it back, and if they do, they have to throw it out. The risk of contamination (even on unopened jars) is just too high!

Now, either that computer screen is REEEEEAALLLLLY gigantic, or Sean is teeny! Hehehehe

All Hail CEO Sean :)

Tara said...

You made it! How long did you finally make the scarf?

Jenny said...

That picture of Sean at the computer is so adorable--perhaps a preview to what your little one may be doing in 25 years!

So cute! I can't believe he got a trim! Gabe needs one too, but I'm holding off because I can't stand the thought! ; )

He is also totally uninterested in mush. All chunky or real food. Today he ate tofu, avocado, cheese, carrots and green beans! At one sitting! He is a beast!

Gorgeous scarf and hat.
