Maybe He Read This Blog..and Some Knitting News

My Little Guy had a much better afternoon and evening after I published my last post.  He actually let 3 people in a row hold him. And since I had just posted about never getting pictures I had the presence of mind to grab my camera.  And then I noticed he was wearing the Milo vest I finished knitting last week.  I shots and knitting news all in one post.

And because I am listening to a GREAT book throughout the day and night while nursing,  I even have a book to share...
The White Queen by Philipa Gregory.
Christa told me about this book long ago and since I needed something to listen to as I sit for HOURS nursing I got this book and LOVE it!!  Getting up at 2:30 to nurse is much easier with this book to listen to...
What,   you say??  I don't just sleep through Drew getting up to nurse???  No, No, No..this little guy does not like to nurse with me laying down.  He will not settle down until I am upright.  So every night I prop pillows up and sit up as much as I can while still leaning my head back never letting him in on the fact that I am half laying.  He like his meals with me fully alert and engaged...but it is not all that bad.  I make sure he eats enough and is happy before laying him back down in his bassinet.  It is working right now ..especially with a book to listen to. 


  1. I'm so glad you had a better afternoon! He must have known you wrote about him:)) My little Pete is my FIRST baby to let me nurse laying down. But last week (7 weeks old) I put him in his crib and he slept much better. He's the noisiest baby EVER!! I hope you have a good night tonight.

  2. I'm glad he cooperated a bit more for you so you could take those sweet photos! What a cutie. I love the vest! You did a fantastic job. :)

  3. Sweet photos:) Yes, sometimes I think the same thing. I will write a post and then things will drastically change...the power of everyone sending wishes for change my way, maybe:)

  4. All the books in that series are amazing Lisa! In fact, I haven't come across a Phillipa Gregory book I didn't like. So, you will have plenty of listening material.
