showcasing various skills

Matei modelling the result of Lynne's excellent knitting skills:





Thank you so much meepettemu!. Everyone loves it, especially my mother whose terror that the baby will die of pneumonia because his feet aren't warm enough has at last been allayed by the application of the bootees.

I have spent the morning practising essential mothering skillz by waxing one leg while rocking the baby's cradle with the other. On the other hand still clearly have much to learn about ironing while keeping an eye on the baby, as judging from the gigantic burn on my arm.

is that thomas in your icon?
Thankfully his feet are growing much slower than the rest of him, so hopefully the booties will fit for a while.

Re: is that thomas in your icon?
The moving icon is Daniel (#2 son), though he's now a big strapping toddler. The icon for this comment shows both of them about 2 years ago - I need a more up-to-date one...

Matei is so perfect and the hat and booties are adorable!

Reading your entries makes me smile even though now my ovaries are killing me. ;) What a wonderful son you have! You must love holding his tiny hands. :)

You must love holding his tiny hands. :)

I do. Especially when he grips my finger like a fierce little monkey. On the other hand though I am less enthusiastic about cutting his tiny but fearsome nails.

I think any parent who can't multitask is destined to die out through natural selection.

cutest pictures ever
Hi -- I got here from the post you left on Flotsam. The only thing cuter than the hat and booties is the baby asleep in his huge pillow. Love it.
