Miss Maggie is 22 weeks old today. She seems to be doing a little better with the sleeping this week than last week so maybe that was just a blip. Poor little bug has conjuctivitis this week and her eyes have been seriously goobery- the joys of big brothers! She should have a wonderfully robust immune system by the time she is school age becasue I swear she has caught every litte bug that the boys have brought home from school. Apparently this round of conjuctivitis is viral so there is not much to do except wait it out. So we are waiting it out and doing routine eye swabbing and hand washing. It doesn't really seem to be bothering her except for some restless nights but who knows whether her eyes are bothering her or she is just having some restess nights! She is still my happy girl for the most part. She smiles every time she sees me, even through her goobery eyes, and it just melts my heart everytime!
I have been having a little knitting ADD this week. I'm still working on the dog from Spud and Chloe but it's been slow going since I don't want to work on it while the boys are around. It's gotten to the point where it is recognizable as a toy and I want it to be a suprise. So I cast on a little newborn charity hat and a sweater for Xander. The hat is for on the go and the sweater is for knitting at home when the boys are around. Hopefully the sweater will be for Xander's birthday. I'm making him a wonderfully wallaby with some mosaic moon yarn I got in a co-op last year. It's the first time I've knit with the mosaic moon bfl and it is lucious. It's a good thing I made the sweater a size up because it is going to be a warm one. It is so nice and soft too though. I haven't really knit enough yet to see how the colors are going to be but I have a feeling they are going to come out nicely, although more stripey that I had anticipated. Stay tuned and come yarn along with us at Ginny's place.
