WIP Wednesday

WIPs are still at a standstill. I've gotten a few rows done, but really, you have to do a lot of rows to see a difference. Found out last week that I am farsighted and that I need glasses. Glasses for 'up-close' work, a.k.a. reading glasses. That should help with my knitting. They'll be here early next week.

Also, holy crap these look awesome. Gonna try making them tonight or tomorrow. I know Rob won't sneak any, but hopefully Devin will help me eat them. I'll report back on how they turn out.

Otherwise this week, we're just trying to get crap back to normal. Devin is super thrown-off as far as schedule goes. The past few weeks have been a complete mess. He hates waking up in the morning now. Hates going to bed. Hates getting dressed. Hates eating breakfast. The only thing he likes to do anymore is test my nerves! I feel bad for him, he doesn't really know how else to express his frustration so he whines and cries about almost everything. He is getting a few words now. Like up, down, ball, mine, buppy (puppy), no, night night. I'm trying to teach him please and I think he finally repeated it last night! This is probably weird, but I get a kick out of his voice. It's like he's not used to it being able to make words and it's sooo cool to hear it not crying, whining, or even laughing. I think I remember thinking the same thing when Leighton started talking too. They both have pretty soft voices like mine.

Happy humpday!


  1. Hang in there. You sound like a very patient mom and that will pay off. As for those cookies, they look so yummy but the chocolate as optional? No way!

  2. Oh, there will definitely be chocolate in mine! I didn't make them last night because of the lack of chocolate in my house - tonight, it's going down!

  3. Mmmm, I love oatmeal cookies! I guess I'm the odd one out, but I actually DO prefer mine sans the chocolate. Nothing but oatmealy goodness! I might need to make some tonight too! I've had a stressful day with Isaac because he had shots today and now he's crabby. Ugh.
