Yesterday was my Mom's birthday ... my sister, her hubby and their 2 boys came home and we had dinner and cake at Mom's place. I made the "cake" (it is actually a pavlova - and was Yummy!). It was a big birthday for my Mom ... I think she looks fabulous for 60.
The finished birthday sock was gifted, then taken back until the pair is finished -- both Mom and my sister loved it, and T says it is the nicest sock I have ever knit (the pattern is really simple, but I guess it looks complex and he likes the combo of the pattern and the yarn). As promised, once the pair is done, I'll post details.
I haven't blogged many pictures of my sister's youngest, Owen (or as he is known in the family "Baby O" or simply "O", and occasionally "O-ee"). He is a doll - most of the time very solemn, very busy, very ticklish and when he grins, he'll melt your heart (he has 2 of the biggest dimples you've ever seen! And both of my sister's kids hold a special place in my heart because of the dimples ~ the 3 of us are the only ones on either side of the family with dimples, so I say that's good genetics at work!). Here are some shots of Baby O:
He can stand and take one step, but won't do another. He has one tooth so far, on the bottom, and eats like there is no tomorrow -- quite different than his big brother!
Pretty soon, we'll be celebrating another birthday (well, technically 2 more) -- my sister and Baby O share June 1st as their big day. Oops, and I forgot, my step father and T's sister-in-law have birthdays May 18th & 20th ... birthdays come in clusters around here!
