I have sick

Carter came home from school with a cough yesterday. When my mom and I went there on Monday for his Valentine's Day party I noticed the little girl sitting next to him coughing all over the place, so I wasn't surprised when he got it. I asked him if he had a cough, and he said, "No, I have sick." LOL

A little pic from this morning to brighten your day:

My First Sweater

A few days ago I started knitting my first sweater. It's also my first experience with cabling so I was nervous about how it would go, but I'm happy to report that so far it's going really well. Here are some pics of the first three days worth of knitting. If you're on Ravelry, you can find me as "amyradish" and follow my progress. If you're interested, that is.

Domestic Goddess

What with there being a hundred feet of snow outside, and our having been stuck at home since Friday, plus my computer being broken, I've had some time to work on my domesticity. I've been knitting a lot. Just finishing a pair of socks, and started gauging my sweater yarn. I'm really looking forward to knitting my first sweater!

I've also been cooking a lot more. You saw the bread I made, which I still swell with pride over every time I think about it. Tonight I made glazed salmon with roasted asparagus and rice, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Pretty damn delicious, if I do say so myself! And I think Chris would agree.

SNO-M-G 2010

When there's over two feet of snow outside and you've been stuck in your house for two days, it's hard to find entertaining things to do. Tonight we had a photo shoot.

And I also did this (FROM SCRATCH!!):

I never thought I'd be able to bake bread without a machine, but apparently I can! I'm so insanely proud of myself. And it turned out delicious, if I don't say so myself.

One of Carter's teachers takes pictures every once in a while and she posts them for us parents to see. Here are a few from his first few weeks of school.










If there's one thing that stands out that Carter has learned these past two weeks at school, it's learning to drink from a regular cup. They don't allow sippies at his school so they have the kids drink from Dixie cups. That quickly transitioned at home to him using big boy cups and he's doing really great with it. In fact, he's doing so well with it that we finally got rid of all of his sippies except a few to keep for car rides and such. It's nice to have that cabinet space back!
