Maggie is 15 weeks old!

The little princess is 15 weeks old this week and weighs a whopping 14 pounds. I went to a baby shower at work the other day and threw her on scale and she was 14 lbs 1.4 oz. with only T-shirt on. I can only hope her growth slows down a little bit because otherwise she will be too heavy to carry pretty soon. We are so lucky to have such a good baby. She's almost sleeping through the night, only getting up once sometimes twice to eat. And most of the time she is content to just hang out and watch the chaos swirling around her and only cries when she's hungry or has a wet diaper or is over tired. I'm sure we'll have plenty of moments to come but since her brothers seem to be in full blown limit testing mode I'm taking the calm, happy baby very gratefully!

Speaking of baby showers I went to that one at work and I'm going to another one this weekend so I've been busily knitting away at baby gifts. For this one I made a Little Pearl Vest. It knits up very quickly and easily and is a nice little vest. I don't think it's too girly if done in a very boyish colorway. Since it is almost all knit it's very fast. Size wise it's also very small which is okay as long as you're aware of that. According to the pattern notes it is meant to be snug anyway. I took up Gretchen's challenge to not count too carefully when doing the increases and failed miserably. I put too many increases at the beginning and not enough towards the end so it's kind of slanted when it comes together but it comes together so I'm going with it. I'll have to be a little bit more careful if I do this vest again. Although until I took this picture I never noticed the pooling along one side- oh well!

Still not much going on on the reading front. Just too busy these days. Come and yarn along with us at Ginny's place.
