Lately, I’ve been noticing how quickly, it seems that my little boys are growing up. Last week, my oldest moved into a top bunk and my youngest joined his 2 older brothers in their big boy room. This past weekend, we took the training wheels off of T’s bike and although he’s having trouble stopping by himself, he’s biking pretty well on his own! What a milestone – it makes him feel like he’s on top of the world!
Bike, big boy, bike!
The biggest change, though, is that my middle child no longer has chubby legs. All my babies had chubby legs, and now, J’s legs are thinning. Noticing this has made me obsessed with the only chubby legs I have left – those on my baby N. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of his sweet chubbiness, knowing that too soon those legs will grow long and thin and all signs of baby-ness in this family will be gone.
On a completely unrelated crafty note, I finished knitting this wiggly worm scarf for the boys. It’s from Knitting Pretty, a great book for a beginner like me.
I cut the eyes out of a scrap of wool that I felted myself in the kitchen sink. I really like the feel of rubbing the wool and watching it felt before my eyes. So far, they are staying on there pretty well even though the boys have found every possible way to mangle and yank at that poor worm. On the plus side, it’s finished size was 3 feet, but it now measures 4!
I wish you all a blessed Easter!
