On Monday I worked on a new little spring outfit for Sawyer. I had wanted to make him pants with this fabric, but pushed it so far back on my to-do list that it was all but forgotten. When the fabric fell on the floor the other day, it was a sign. I knew it was time.
I appliqued an elephant on the front of the onesie. I'm not too thrilled with his ear or tail. However, I did a perfect french knot for his eye. I don't think I've done a french knot in many years. So long ago, in fact, I even needed to look up the directions, first.
My parents say he looks Jamaican in his outfit. I was afraid he would look like a circus clown. (Do you think he will hate me one day for this outfit?)
Anyway, last night while I was straightening up, he was jumping in his seat. When he started to cry, I assumed it was because he couldn't see me. When I picked him up, this is what I saw ... and smelled:
It was the very first time he wore it! Luckily, I think I got most of it out.
And while the boys played outside yesterday after school, Carter wrote (or "rote") a song for Spenser. There is an "h" on "much," it was cropped when I scanned it this morning. What a sweet guy!
Last week the children were playing in the snow, having a snow day, and drinking hot chocolate. This week they are jumping on the trampoline, playing in their tree fort, riding bikes, and eating popsicles. And a few more daffodils are blooming.
