At the end of the hop, I will announce the winner of the giveaway.
In the meantime, I thought I’d share a little bit about what’s been going on here.  I just finished all the editing and photos on the new patterns.  I am so exited to have it done again for the season.  My mind is going with all the projects I am going to start, now that I will have some free time!  There will be 4 new patterns that I will share with your shortly.
In other happenings around here, our precious little Max had his 1st birthday. He is a busy little boy, running everywhere, climbing and trying to do everything his big brother does.  His 1 year checkup was last week and he is in the 60th percentile for height, and a whopping 99% for head size and 96% for weight.   I knew he was heavy, I just didn’t realize that he was that stocky.  Otherwise he is happy and healthy.  He got 4 shots at his appointment, which upset Carter.  He kept loudly telling the nurses -“But he is just LITTLE”  over and over.  (which is exactly what he hears form me.)   Max is saying a few words and is becoming more expressive.  There are mostly grunts and lots of pointing, but he gets his point across.  He has an opinion and is very persistent about it.   He loves to go outside and go Bye-Bye.  Both Joel and I are always waiting with anticipation to see what he will do next, while enjoying what he is doing now.  To help me remember him at this age, there are a few pictures I would like to share.

    So precious!! I don’t think you can take too many photos, I must go check out my daughter’s pic, I don’t think I took enough, but then we didn’t have digital cameras and my pennies were short then to buy film and develop. ahhhh, just a nice plus to technology!! Looking forward to the new patterns too.
