Knit Love

September 24, 2011

Our little ones have a few wonderful knitters in their lives, but none compare to Nan!  My mom, their Nan, always has a project going for one of them.  She knits with intention and love.  This one skein kimono sweater was made for the Noodle.  It was his first sweater.  Here is the Little Miss wearing it for the first time.

Bronx Zoo

We planned our Bronx Zoo trip for the first day the city schools were back in session.  Such a fabulous idea!  The zoo was empty—perfect for a fast moving two year old and  newborn in need of frequent snack breaks. 

In Remembrance

On our way to the playground this afternoon we passed this memorial on the bridge down our street.

Baby Blanket

September 5, 2011

I finished Little Miss' blanket just a week before she arrived.  It is the second Super Easy Baby Blanket by Purl Bee that I have made.  There is nothing like rows upon rows of super soft Malabrigo!

The Noodle turned two yesterday! He is all sweetness and spirit.  I am the luckiest!
