I'm way behind again.

So sorry I haven't blogged in so long, kids. But, I'm adjusting to my new job as a stay at home mom! My last day working was July 29 and Stu started his great new job on August 1. We're both so happy with how things are going. Although, Stu really misses taking care of Morgana.

I've been getting a good amount of knitting done and I'm slowly getting the house in order. Hopefully, just doing maintenance housekeeping isn't too far off. Since I am able to get some knitting done during Morgana's naps, I also hope to maybe do more blogging during naps as well. I hope to post at least once a week again. Wish me luck. I miss writing for you all and I hope you miss reading about my life as well. I hope you'll have faith in me to eventually get my groove back with blogging... and soon.

I've gotten half way through making the eclair cake for my hubby's work BBQ tomorrow. I'm excited. I'll have to take some pics.

I'll leave you with some pics.

I hope you can see them... someone's getting two teeth! (Click pic for larger view.)

I've also been knitting some bows for her. I made a nursing necklace as well.

I'm now working on a blanket for Morgana. It's the Patchwork Garter Baby Throw pattern from Lion Brand.

Please, please check out my photos for more wonderful pics!

Thanks to all of you who have stuck it out through the sparse posts. I really appreciate you still checking back! Hope I have more for you and more frequently!

What an adorable bow! Do you offer any free knitting patterns? I'm the editor of AllFreeKnitting.com and I'm always searching for new bloggers to link to and work with. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions.

p.s. Your daughter is too cute. :)

Morgana is such a cutie and I love those bows! Congrats on becoming a SAHM. It's tough work but oh so worth it. Trying to balance your cleaning and baby can be a tough job. Good luck and can't wait to be reading more!

Hi Amber, Little Miss is amazing, what a clever girl sitting up, and drinking from a cup too.

Lovely to see all your photos. My little girl is 6 months today and hasn't mastered any of that yet, though she's a monster roller, she'll go from one side of the room and back!

Love the knitted bows! Jane xx

Jessica,

Kissing them is even better than squeezing them and nom-noming them is better than kissing!
