Wow! It's been a bit over a week since I last posted, but I've been making good progress on my Blessing sampler. Erin's been cooperating by going to sleep around 8PM each night, so I've had time to stitch!
A few pieces in my stash are calling to me to start them, but I already have too many started, and really need to finish a few (ok, at least two) before starting anything else, hence the concentration on this piece.
Erin update: We have a date for cast removal! Cast-off day is Monday, September 21. Two weeks to go. Erin is getting very impatient with the cast. She's now seven months old, and wants to GO! She's constantly getting frustrated that she can't reach something or she'll try to throw herself backward when she's sitting on someone's lap. It's like she knows she should be able to move more, but can't quite figure out why she can't.
Here's a picture from a couple of weeks ago. Somebody had given us this really pretty dress, and it was just hanging in her closet waiting for a special occasion. I finally decided that any day could be a special occasion, or the dress wouldn't be worn at all! When DH first saw this dress, he commented that it looked like she was wearing a tablecloth (though since then he's decided it's really cute on her).
This past week, Erin's started to wrinkle her nose at times. It's pretty funny. Here she is (in a different pink gingham dress) when trying Cheerios for the first time yesterday.
