Month 8.

Just a quick little update. We've been very busy preparing for a toy and comic fair that runs this Sunday.
:: We started Cheerios last week! I was using them more to help her with her pincer grip, but she seems to like them very much. She gets excited when I ask her if she wants some.
:: Log rolling from place to place. Still no crawling, but like I said before, I don't think she's going to be a crawler.
:: She wants to walk everywhere! When we are sitting on the couch, she'll grab my fingers and slide of the chair so she can walk. She's now using my hands more for balance than support.
:: Evie had a reaction to tofu. She had some rashes and belly aches (we think). We're going to stay away from that. She seems to really like her fruits (sweettooth, like her dad). What I find interesting is that she has the same tastes that I had when I was pregnant: sweet tooth, fruit, chicken aversion. Does this mean she'll like spicy food?
:: As mentioned in a previous post, I've been making her pants since she is so tall. I've made her 4 pairs so far. Also, I find the 18-24mos size of the Karate American Apparel pant fits well.
:: 2 teeth! She has quite of bit of trouble when the teeth want to come in. So exhausting. But I love to see those teeth!
:: My daughter is silly.


Near the End.

I think my time at this blog is near ending. I've cancelled my subscription, and although there's still a few months left here, I'll probably be spending more time on the new blog.

I started this blog as my crafty blog. Knitting, sewing, spinnning...all the things that I wanted to do lots of. But now, with Evie, it's become my report of Evie blog. There has been no knitting or sewing or spinning to report of. Okay, there's some sewing, but nothing really to report as it was not for self consumption but as inventory for the sellings.

Now we are focused on other things: Trying to make it work for me to stay at home means that I have to try to supplement income. More of the sellings. Most of my merchandise is in the form of wet bags and buttons, but there may be some screenprinting of shirts on the way. It's a far cry from the original knitting and sewing of dog clothes.

I still will probably post a thing or two here, but you can catch me more at http://pumpingalrights.livejournal.com/. I've been twittering, so you can catch my daily tweets on the blog as well as the progress of screening shirts and trying to break into the indie craft shows...*fingers crossed*


My tall daughter...

...can't fit any pants I buy. Although they 'fit', they are all TOO SHORT. There is no choice but the make her pants. Winter is coming. I don't want her shins to get cold.

Working on my own pattern. I've made 3 test pants so far.
