Becoming a Person

I posted this picture on Myspace and my friend Stacy marveled at the fact that Violet suddenly became a little person! It's true, she has moved from the teensy little grimace monster who barely made a peep and had a bad case of "the crazy eyes", to a book loving gigglebee who can screech louder and higher then a dog whistle. Amazing. p.s. I lOVE this crazy thing she is sitting in- it's called a "Bumbo" of all things, and it helps lil sprouts like Vie who want to sit up, but just can't quite yet.

Lyra's Knit hat from the Golden Compass Movie: baby style

I fell in love with the hat Lyra is wearing in the Golden Compass! It looked like a cinch to knit- and I was right- it took about 20 mins to knit up a baby sized one for Violet. Pretty cute!

I got the free pattern from Lion Brand website:

Nikki Mclure

Yesterday I succumbed to the "Mom" hair cut. That's right, I chopped off my very long locks in favor for a short, non-baby accessible hair-do. Thats not really the point though- as I was under the dryer, I was was flipping through the new Bust and came across this print by artist Nikki Mclure. It made me instantly regret my ponytail-ectomy. Birthday present anyone?
