This morning I spent cleaning the house & preparing food for Quentin's guests.

He had 4 of his friends over to play.

Quentin was actually the 2nd oldest there (and the smallest one). Kyle & Nate are 20 days younger than Quentin and Mia is 21 days younger. The only one who is older, is Katie, who is almost 6 weeks older than Quentin. Quentin had a good time with his friends over. We're trying to figure out if we'll have this a weekly thing, or bi-weekly. Some of us want weekly and the rest bi-weekly. Maybe we'll just do it weekly and whomever can come weekly - will. You know? Maybe that's the way to go? We were supposed to be a few more moms and babies today, but a few people got sick over the weekend.


Quentin was in such a good mood this afternoon, we played on the floor by my bedroom patio doors. I love the light that comes in there through the windows. Good natural light.



Quentin is getting a little too big for the Baby Wrap photo prop I knit. The last time I photographed him in it the lighting wasn't so good, and I wasn't happy with my photos. I then forgot about it for a while, and went to pull it out today, and alas, he's getting a wee too long for it. I'm going to put it away in my photography prop box. I still have dreams of photographing other people's newborns.



I love that the boys can play very nicely together while I prepare dinner.

As of this afternoon (daylight still out) I had just about an inch left on Quentin's Wyatt. I was able to finish it tonight and now all I have left to do is seam up the sides. I am hoping to have a finished object for you tomorrow. (Depending on when I actually get it seamed and if there is still daylight out for a photoshoot with it. I actually believe that it will fit Quentin now. I don't understand the sizing on the pattern. The sizes are NB-9 months, 9 months - 18 months, 18-24 months (which is starting to make sense) and then 2/3T, 3/4T, 4/5T, etc. How on earth is a NB the same size as a 9 month old to fit into the sweater? And what 9 month old is the same size as when they are 18 months old?

Baby knits are fun. Many of my friends are mamas and I love knitting for their little ones, especially since it keeps me knitting as they grow!
