So, my first news is that I've actually knit something! I already crochet, and several times I've tried to pick up knitting but it was always a struggle. About a year ago, I started knitting a simple scarf, which was going pretty well, but I think it was too big for a first project and I never finished it. So I decided to do a bias dishcloth, which I've finished! I just have to weave in the ends. It's not perfect, but I'm super excited about it. I think I finally realized that there wasn't some magical thing that was going to happen to make me knit well. I just had to do it
We watched Toy Story 3
for the second time tonight. What a great movie - funny, entertaining and very moving. It says important things about our need to be loved and valued, and of course there's a lot about growing up and letting the past go. It made me cry about 50 bazillion times. Kudos to Pixar for coming up with a really original and interesting idea. I think I'd be willing to see a Toy Story 4
Tabitha got Toy Story 3
as a Christmas present. She's at the age where her favorite word is "mine", so she was soooooo excited about opening her presents and knowing they were hers. She carried the movie around for a few days. She's also so clever, IMO, because she's been doing all this "matching." We have Woody and Buzz Lightyear dolls, so she carried those around with the movie. Also, we love Little Lulu, so we have a ton of books and a vinyl Lulu figurine... so she carries those around together. And she has also paired a Donald Duck stuffed toy with a Donald Duck comic book we have. She figured this out by herself, which I think is cool.
Sebastian told me tonight that he's the best jumper in the world - "no one is gooder than me." He's very proud of his jumping, fighting, etc. abilities. Tonight he was standing on the back or the arm of the couch and jumping onto our little coffee table (which is sturdy). (Technically, he's not supposed to stand on the couch arm, but I let him because he was so proud of himself.) Of course, Mom and Dad were supposed to watch every time. The last time, he pulled his underwear down before jumping, for a little dramatic flair. He is such
a boy, haha.
The last thing I want to say right now is that my husband has a blog. We've become fairly avid comic book readers in the past few years, so his blog is about that - upcoming releases, reviews, etc. I don't know if anyone reading this cares about comics (but tyknrxbell's
husband is a big comic book fan, right?), but I wanted to share anyway. His blog is The Comics in My Life
. If anyone wants to dip their toe in the comic book water, check it out. Also, Weekly Crisis
is a great blog that my husband reads a lot.
