i finished abby's longies!!!! they took me 4 days to make. i started out on size 16'' 8 circulars then changed to size 8 DPNs for the legs. i must say that DPNs are a PAIN IN THE BUTT!!! i used universal yarn deluxe worsted LP 100% wool. colorway is apple orchid.

i LOVE the way these turned out. they are by no means perfect -- if you look hard you'll see a lone purled row on the right leg! but i am so excited with these and that they fit!!!

i love our mailman! he has to be the world's BEST mailman ever!!

just wanted to throw that out there!

so the snelson household is a very sick household right now. abby had a stomach virus. then mommy got the virus yesterday. my stomach isn't as bad today but i am very weak and dizzy. now daddy has the virus on top of a sinus thing. it's not a pretty sight in our house right now. but at least abby isn't sick anymore!

so after our adventures with grilled cheese yesterday, abby decided that it would be fun to have a new adventure: keep mommy and daddy up all night by throwing up! yep. my child was up until 4:30 throwing up. this has been the one thing that i have dreaded since i found out i was pregnant. those of you who know me know my phobia of throwing up. and here i am, with an 11 month old baby who ONLY WANTS MAMA - won't stay with daddy - and is throwing up. i was scared out of my mind. but she seems fine today. hasn't thrown up since the middle of the night so hopefully we are past it.

abby is 11 months old. (where did the time go?!) i have been wondered the past week or so if it's time for her to have real table food for her meals instead of just boring old pureed chicken, vegetables, and fruits. so today i decided to give it a go and gave abby her first grilled cheese sandwich. she did so well!! i was so proud!!! my little baby is growing up!

just want to say how awesome it is to sit and do nothing with your best friend. if you haven't done it in a while, DO IT! it's the best.

that is all.
