My dear little babe, eight weeks has blown by me like a windy day. You’re showing everyone who was so concerned with your slow weight gain in those early weeks not to worry. You just needed a little time to get adjusted to living outside your watery world.
At two months old, you’re watching us all with intensity and delighting us with your coos and smiles. Sleeping is still an issue, but I trust that just like the eating and the weight gain, you’ll figure it out in your own time. And when you do sleep, you talk. At first I was rushing in to see you at every croak and groan, but I’ve learned now that’s just what you do. I guess we’re both learning, aren’t we little one?
Now you’re growing so quickly that I’ve had to store away all your newborn baby sleepers. This makes me a little sad. The newborn baby days have passed, but it’s quickly replaced by thoughts of all the growing and learning that is ahead of you. I can hardly wait!
The pom-pom pixie hat was knitted up in less than an hour. I finally used some of the bulky handspun from New Zealand that I’ve been playing with for over a month. The hat design is a simple garter stitch rectangle, with gradual decreases at the sewn-up end with braided ties and pom-pom attached.
Happy two months my littlest darling!
