How long has it been?

We went on vacation in June and it seems I'm still trying to catch up on life.

Ellie's walking! She was about 10.5 months when she took her first steps. She still crawls more than walks. And she's a climber too. Ugh. I think she wants me to have a heart attack.

I thought the piano was bad, until I saw this:

I mean seriously, what 11 month does this kind of stuff? Apparently Ellie. Other current obsessions are her sippy cup--"gink," the cats "kiiiiiiii" and books "boo." She's also very into pointing.

Mary's 3.5 going on 16. Ugh. Pre-school starts in 19 days. Not that I'm counting. She's on my last nerve. I cut her hair this morning due to excessive tangles. Maybe I'll try to get a picture of her soon. Here's something she wrote recently:

She had it all done by herself except Ellie which she needed me to spell for her. She's really into writing notes these days. When she's not throwing a fit.

I've been busy knitting as usual. I think I'd go insane without it. I just finished this sweater for Mary:

Of course she's already told me she doesn't like it and won't wear it. Thanks, sweetie!

I'm also in the middle of making my Mom's b-day gift. She's coming here at the end of August and hope to have it done by then. I really hope she likes it. All I can say is that it's something felted:).

And I'm making 4 Christmas stockings for my friend Lisa. We're doing a trade. She's making some longies for Ellie.

I can't wait to see a picture of them in her bright green living room. I have three done. I need to get going on the last one as I think we are going to meet up at the Wool Gathering in September and trade.

Ellie's napping and Mary's resting. I have dinner in the oven already. I think I might rest too. I'm hoping once pre-school starts I'll have more time to blog regularly.

Just of these days you will get a "bad mommy" note! I saved mine. I figure I can tell her she figured it out early on!!! ;)

Glad to see you are blogging again. Miss Ellie has grown. She looks so cute!!!
