Open Roads

Hey Everyone, I am back! I know I took just a little blog break. But glad to be back and hope to post more on a regular schedule now. So let me give you an update on everyone in the family.

Please excuse the horrible onesie he is wearing. Go Tarheels!

Breck is 3 months old now. He is my chunky monkey. He is already in 6 month and some 9 month clothes. At his two month check up he weighed 15lbs and 7oz.  He is sleeping better now at night just waking up one time. He is a early raiser and likes to wake me up at 5:30am and 6:00am. He loves his sister and she can always get him to laugh. He is laughing and giggling so much more these days. He is even starting to grab at the things that hang above him in his bouncy chair.


Next up is Uma our loving dog. She is officially over a year old now. She is still digging holes all over my back yard. She loves to sneak a few licks of Breck's head when I am not looking. She follows Virginia all over the house. She really is a great family dog. 


Virginia is growing and can't believe my baby will be starting Kindergarten in August. She is doing great. She loves playing outside and of course playing on her Ipad. She has also picked up knitting. Yep she is learning to knit. Makes me so happy. And she is still very fond of doing crafts though out the day. 


Reiggin and I are doing great. We both got new cars. I know it is crazy but the time was just right and things fell into place. I am thrilled to have two cars again. Being stuck in the house during the week was getting old. 

Week in Review


So now that I have a car again Virginia, Breck, and I have been hitting the open road. This week we have enjoyed going to the park. Going to the park with two kids by myself is really a learning process. I have learned it is easily when you have a friend with you. Also have learned that when the park is packed it is tough to roll the stroller up and push your kid on the swing. But walking the stroller around the track I hope will be a good source of exercise for me and bonus it puts Breck to sleep. 

We also have gotten back into speech lessons so we have those Tuesday and Thursday. On Wednesday we got back into going to story time at the library. It was so much fun to be back and to see our favorite librarian and to see how much the kids have grown that attend. 


I even was brave and took Virginia and Breck to Homeschool skate day on Friday. Virginia has been begging to go skating. And it was nice to see all her homeschool friends and their moms. This group of moms, we have almost all had babies in the past year. I was nervous about helping Virginia skate and taking care of Breck at the same time. Virginia surprised me and after following her around the rink two times she took off on her own. My baby is growing up.


Saturday we drove to Clover for Zach's birthday. It is always fun when we go to the Miller's house. But this time it was beyond awesome. They had a new roller-coaster toy that the kids love. Even the adults were pondering if they could ride the coaster without breaking it. 


Sunday we went to church and did some rainy day crafts and just hung out at home since the weather was so nasty outside. 

Knitting WIPs ( Works in Progress)


I am currently working on the womb wisdom headband/ ear warmer for Virginia. I am using size US8 needles and Red Heart with Love Fruit Punch yarn. This is the first project with cables that I have ever done. I am really enjoying doing the cables. 

Virginia is working on the second square of her blanket. She keeps changing her mind if she is going to make a scarf or a blanket with the squares she is knitting. 

Knitting FOs ( Finished Objects )




Since the beginning of the year I have finished a Knit Hat for Virginia, Grandmother's Favorite wash cloth for Faby's new baby Melody, and the Onesie wash cloth for Jess's baby Joey. 



Virginia has finished her first knitted square. She is practicing her knit and purl stitch. Her first square is pink. I honestly forget what kind of yarn and needle size she used on this square. 








Well that is our week in a nutshell, I am hoping to at least post once a week with a summary of how our week has been.
