My sweet kids

I just spent an hour trying to put Lucy to bed. While she isn't as bad as Sawyer was, she doesn't have the best sleeping habits....part of it is my fault, we haven't been super consistent with her routine because she is more flexible....but I think that is starting to bite us in the behind. Sleep is my least favorite part of parenting. There is something about it that drives me crazy. And I will never understand babies....they scream when they are tired....which is the opposite of helpful.

But, my kids are amazing....even if they don't speak English or sleep great. (We are working on both of those problems) The other day something happened that I never thought would. I made the kids matching hats before Lucy was born....and I never thought I would get a picture of them in them together. Especially since Sawyer has been running from the camera and hates hats. But, it happened. They aren't great, but it made my day.

Terrible blogger

So, I'm bad at blogging.... I haven't been knitting... I am in a funk. But, I did sew Sawyer some pants last night, out of fabric I bought around Christmas. He helped me sew them and was really excited until we finished them at which point he decided he wanted nothing to do with them.

There were some moose in the yard the other day. The family was about to head out to the front yard and I happened to glance out and see a moose walking across the yard! Thankfully I looked, as it turned out to be a mom with a baby, who strolled past a few seconds later. I love moose.

Hoping to get my knitting mojo back on track. I am just not in love with anything I'm working in, and casting on seems like so much work..... Ha! I did dye yarn to knit Lucy's birthday sweater. Because, she is suddenly SEVEN months old....what!? Hopefully I start that soon and have something to show for all of my time.....well, besides happy and healthy children. ;)
