So far we have more than 30 people participating in the Lace Ribbon Scarf Knitalong! Most of you are using Ravelry as well for this KAL. If you want to be a part of the Ravelry group and are a Ravelry member, just go here:
Otherwise, I'll post progress of the group here on the blog on Fridays starting May 19. If you want your blog linked or pictures of your progress posted here, you have to send me the info by Wednesday to have info posted on this blog on Friday. Want more info on the KAL? Go here.
James has taken to pulling himself up on couches, window ledges and cabinet drawers- anything that will help him hoist his wobbly baby bottom off the floor. He has yet to figure out how to gracefully lower himself back on that cushy bottom. Sometimes he's able to grab progressively lower ledges and slowly make his way to a kneeling position, but most of the time he simply lets go of what he's holding and drops like a rock to the floor. The most interesting moments involve him unexpectedly loosing his balance and face-planting onto the carpet. I then try a well-timed cheer to preempt the wailing.... "Safe!" "Yea!" "Who's SO BIG?!" have all become the phrases of choice when I'm trying to keep James from realizing that he's majorly bashed his face into the floor.
This morning was a change of pace as he completely lost his balance while dancing to one of my made-up songs, Ebineezer Baby Sneezer. (Oh, stop laughing- you know you've made up weird songs for your kids before!) And though I was sure that he was going to wail and hold his hands to Mama for "up-up-up", he did not. After falling on his face, he turned around and gave me this look that said "I'm-going-to-pretend-you-didn't-see-my-embarrassing-dancing-skilz-let's-not-speak-of-this-again." It was purely ego-driven and super cute. He then went about his business as if nothing happened.
Of course, I go and blog about it. I guess when he's older I won't be able to blog about his embarrassing moments.
