The Day After

I hope everyone had a happy holiday yesterday.... us, we had a good time! We celebrate Chris-ma-kah, so most of celebrating was already over by yesterday. I broke tradition and bought Weston a gift (we normally don't get each other anything, just buy something fun for the house... this year it happened to be a washer and dryer... not really "fun" but necessary) which I think I already talked about. I bought it on Black Friday... so he has had it since then. It was a super big Craftsman tool chest for his shed. He loves it.

Yesterday morning while hanging out with the in-laws waiting for breakfast to cook, W brought Sawyer to me. He had something hard in his sleeper, so I unsnapped it to find a gift card to the pilates studio by our house! It said To: Mommy Love: Sawyer.... he is such a thoughtful baby! He knew that I wanted to take a class there, and now I can!! Later that night, when we were back at home, I went to change Sawyer into his party clothes (one last party last night!) and I found two super nice bottles of wine (that are for ME and apparently not really to be shared) and a gift card for a massage. Awesome! I was blown away, especially since we don't get gifts for each other!! W said he wanted to get me something nice since I have been doing such a good job of taking care of Sawyer. Awww.... My husband is pretty amazing.

Sawyer got some new clothes from his aunt and a set of soft blocks from grandma. I made him two (one more is on the way....) fabric books. One is the Poky Little Puppy and the other is the Saggy Baggy Elephant. He was hanging out with me when I made the elephant book and was really getting a kick out of all the different steps that I would show him. It was really fun. The last book that I have to finish is a counting book with pirate bears. I think he will really like that one as well since he seems to have a thing for bears...

I was able to get a good amount of knitting done yesterday, which was a gift in itself!! I am down to the last 12 rows of the second sleeve of Sawyer's sweater. I'm hoping that he can wear it as a jacket in the spring and fall. I need to get cracking on it!!
