Maggie is 23 weeks old!

Miss Maggie is 23 weeks old! She is doing pretty well.  She somewhat miraculously, overnight recovered from her conjunctivitis which was nice but she still has a bit of a persistent cough that I would like to see her get rid of. Of course we ended up taking her to the doctor probably unnecessarily because up until the morning of her appointment she had all kinds of goobery eyes!  Silly goose couldn't have cleared up a day earlier so I didn't waste a trip to the doctor!!!! Oh well she is up to 16 lbs now so little tank is still tanking up. She's been fussy with her cough and not sleeping well so I've not been sleeping there has been some crabbiness at home recently. I see some much needed sleep in my future (please....) She is trying so hard to sit up but she keeps face planting. I guess she will have to work on her core strength some more! She has found her hands really well and now refuses to have her pacifier put into her mouth but insists on doing it herself.  I was having such fun watching her do it that I think I created a bit of a monster.... This is such a fun age because they are so interactive and yet not so mobile they get themselves into too much trouble. I'm not really looking forward to chasing a crawler around...

On the crafting front I made good progress on Xander's Wonderful Wallaby.  I haven't quite finished the doggy yet because I haven't been able to work on it in front of the boys since I want it to be a surprise for Easter, but I am almost there. The wallaby is going to be a lovely sweater although the yarn is pooling in rather interesting ways. Hopefully it will all come together in the end but it might end up being kind of a wild hodge podge; seeing as the body is pooling totally differently than the sleeves and I haven't even gotten to the hood yet.

Come yarn along with us at Ginny's Place.
