long lost blogger

This mama just can't find the time to blog. It rarely crosses my mind that I still have this here bloggy blog. Ah well, such is the life of a mom with an 11 month old baby.

Baby O is super duper happy, making friends where ever she goes, but she is going through another very clingy period right now. She is so often following me around, pulling on my pant leg and wanting to be held that I don't get much else done. The other day I pseudo-cleaned a toilet with Baby O on my left hip. It took some skill keeping her little hands out of the toilet bowl.

I finished my little gal's knitted cardi. Isn't it gorgeous?!

This is the 12 months size and has a lot of room for her to grow into it, especially the sleeves. The bone buttons are a great touch. She looks fantastic!

I've started a linen/cotton blend dress for her in crochet. The bodice is stripy and the skirt is a lovely minty-leaf green. I have the back of the bodice completed. I'll start the front on Sunday likely.

Hubby's show has been nominated for 9 Gemini awards! Woo-hoo! Can't wait to congratulate Hubby when the awards role in! It's also nominated for some Canadian Comedy Awards (St John the first weekend in Oct)!

Well, I am back to work in a couple of weeks. Tomorrow Baby O and I will go to her new daycare for some mommy/baby play time. This will lead to her being there on her own for an hour or two next week. That will lead us up to full time care by the second week of Oct. I've made sure O is full time for 4 days before I have to go back to the office. Mama needs some 'me' time (ie. house cleaning time). I may also get my butt to Body Blitz once.
