We're still alive here.....

I sort of dropped off the face of the earth for a while, but I'm still alive, knitting, spinning, and sewing too. In the time I've been away, my little A turned two and I made him a Percy's Chocolate Crunch cake to celebrate:

Here are all the kids dressed up for Easter. My SIL was visiting us, so they were being extra cute for her!
J is not a little baby anymore, he's already 6 months old and 21 lbs! He rolls all over the place and moves forward by flinging himself, which looks a bit like he's doing the butterfly stroke.

Here are DH, J, B, and A on our way to church a few weeks ago. I had made their outfits for one of my BILs high school graduation. B's dress is McCall's 4006. J and A have curved raglans from Ottobre 2/05, J's romper is from Ottobre 3/07, while A's shorts are just a basic pair from Kwik Sew for Toddlers.

And because who can resist a sleeping baby!

So happy to see you posting again! I can't believe how much the kids have grown. What a beautiful family.

Thanks for the update! I LOVED seeing the kids and all the cute stuff you made them. I haven't tried any of the Ottobre knit stuff yet but am happy with the other stuff so far. This fall I hope to do more.

So glad you're back. But you had good reason to withdraw for a bit. Babies are SOOOOO adorable! I just want to squoosh those chubby widdle cheeks.
