Easter Weekend, Knitting, and Updates

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well and had a good week! I was going to post on Monday after a busy Easter weekend with family, but the week went by so fast and didn't get to posting. I am posting today though on Friday, and it is a happy and sunny Friday. I always am so excited on Fridays now because I look forward to spending time together as a family and Liam isn't working and I get more me time haha. I get my time during the week during naps and when I can find it. My Mother in law helps me once a week too and she comes to watch Evan and I go get groceries, go to an appointment, catch up on tasks like laundry etc. It really helps to get that time as well. Easter was great we went over to Liam's mom's place, my MIL who helps with Evan. We had a lovely turkey dinner and it was nice to see people again and them to see Evan. Then on Sunday, my family came over so my mom and dad, my sister and her husband and my nephew Luca. It was busy here with two babies and a cat lol. I really enjoy having them here to all be together to share a meal and make memories. I put on a little Easter egg hunt for Luca and it was cute to see him going around looking for the eggs. Evan mostly napped and spent time in someone's arms taking it all in. I made baked chicken and roasted carrots and mashed potatoes. We also had some cauliflower casserole from my parents and had appetizers before and a lovely Easter cake I forgot to take a photo of. 

I also put together an Easter basket for Evan for his first Easter. I got Luca the same wicker bunny basket that had bubbles and some bunny glasses inside. He used it for his Easter egg hunt too. I got Evan a book called You are my Sunshine by Caroline Jayne Church. I used to sing this song to him while I was pregnant so it is a special song for us. He likes it as I sing and flip through the pages. I got him a Sassy ball that has different parts that stick out to explore. I also got a Skip Hop dog that has different colors and fun things to explore. 

The arches baby blanket is coming along. I have been knitting a couple of rows a day during naptimes. It is so peaceful and calming to knit while he is sleeping and a nice quiet activity that won't wake him up. I am almost at the halfway point in the blanket. I can't wait to be able to use it on our stroller walks this Spring. I better hurry because the weather has been more like Summer lately at 26 degrees Celsius today.

I am still getting a lot of cuddles from Evan and he is 4.5 months old now. He is growing so fast and really doing so many fun things now like talking a lot and smiling. He is reaching for toys and he is rolling over from tummy to back. I am really trying to slow down and enjoy him while he is so small and look forward to seeing all the things he learns and can do as he grows. 

Millie has been doing well too. She keeps an eye on us while doing mat time and she likes to perch at the back of the glider in the nursery. She also does this when I am nursing and she keeps us company. I try to also give Millie lots of attention too she likes being brushed and she is always asking us for more attention and to get her toy crinkle balls from under the couch.

Joining along with As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesday.

Thank you for visiting my blog this week! I love to come on here and to reflect on the week and to share things that go on and progress on my knitting. It really holds me accountable and I love to look back on past posts through the years. 

Have a great weekend and I will be back to share on Sunday!

Knitting and Puzzle Progress

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. Happy April! This past week flew by and I got some knitting done on the arches baby blanket by LJM designs on Ravelry. I am happy to see more progress on it now and it is getting longer. I look forward to using it on our stroller walks and the weather is still cool now but there is hope for warmer weather around the corner.

Evan has been doing well. He is growing and learning a lot now. It is fun to see him progress and we do lots of mat time during the week. He is four months old now!

Millie keeping us company sitting on the glider in the nursery during nap time. She is happy sometimes to be close by but keeping her distance.

I was working on my puzzle again this past weekend and made some progress. Millie was attacking the pieces every once and awhile but then stopped and rested and let me work. I didn't get all the edge pieces set up like usual but working on getting that done now. I didn't read at all last week I will work on reading more this week.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope that you had a good weekend. What are you working on this week?
