… with Ginny is something I look forward to each week! I missed all of the projects and books last week, because I had just given birth to a healthy baby boy!
I guess I’m on what is called a babymoon, and I am loving every moment. My new routine involves a nice afternoon siesta. My baby usually takes an extra-long nap at this time of day, and we just snuggle the afternoon away in my big, comfy chair! I usually doze off, but when I’m awake, it is the perfect time to get a bit of knitting in. And when my children return from school or wake up from their naps, I am more than available to read a book or two with them. I know this little ritual won’t last forever, but for now, it is wonderful, and I am grateful for this special time with my new son.
This week, I cast on a Milo vest for my 3yo daughter. (It is her turn for a hand-knit!) I think I started over about three times, though. I blame the pain meds that I am taking for my recovery =)
A new Christmas book that my children and I are enjoying is Joy to the World by Tomie dePaola. It is a collection of three of his stories—The Night of Las Posadas, The Story of the Three Wise Kings and The Legend of the Poinsettia—as well as select Christmas carols and dePaola’s famous illustrations.
