Dishcloth afterglow

I woke up this morning tired, but happy. :) We had a hard time getting Anne down for bed last night, but after that, we actually had a good night. She was only up twice to nurse, although she woke me several other times with some cranking. At the end of the summer/beginning of fall, we plan to move her to her own room, which will be like a dream. :) She's a very noisy sleeper, so that will a good thing.

But she's adorable, and I love her. She's alert a bit more now, which I love, and she'll be 4 weeks old tomorrow! She weighs in at a whopping 10.1 pounds!! As Mike always asks me, "what the heck is in your breast milk?!" Apparently super powered baby growth hormone.

Mike: "What's that smell? Oh right. Vomit."

That's pretty much our life theme right now, but we're navigating it rather well. :)

In other news, I got to work on my dishclohs yesterday, and they're going awesome. I found that I can crochet AND nurse the baby (as long as I use the Boppy Pillow) at the same time! I am: Super Multitasking Crafty Mommy.

That pattern booklet I'm using is 2 Hour Dishcloths, available from the Annie's Attic web site. You can also get it in print, but the electronic download is only $7.95. There are 12 beautiful patterns in it, so I consider it a very good deal. My favorite is called "Wee Bobbles." I made one for my mother-in-law last year, and she requested another because she likes it so much, to use as pot holders. It's nice and thick, so also makes a good trivet. Hers is rose pink with a variegated pink and white border. I'm making one now that is turquoise blue with a summery yellow/blue/green trim. It's really got my crafting mojo going again. I'm loving it.
