"Wicked Witch"

I just finished knitting a sock last night. I'm using the knitpicks Imagination yarn in "Wicked Witch." I love it! The yarn is soft and comfy. The pattern I'm using is called "Charade." It fits perfectly! I'm so proud of myself. Of course, at the same time, I'm smacking myself. I have a baby blanket that desperately needs finishing... it's about 60% complete... and here I am making socks. *sigh* Oh well. Take a peek. I hope you like it!

I'm sitting here at work, waiting for the nail polish on my artifacts to dry (it always seems like it takes forever). I'm staring at my lotion and I tell you... I love it. You should try it (this is where I ramble on because I'm bored.)! It's Burt's Bees stuff, which is always awesome because it's close to being completely natural. I love this lotion because it goes on thick and slowly sinks into your skin... be prepared to keep your hands off things for around five minutes. I only apply it once a day and it's fantastic for my hands! I have this horrid spot on one knuckle that continually tried to crack... terribly dry skin. I've been using this lotion for about two weeks and I can't even tell the spot was there. It has stuff like sesame oil and lavender oil and willow bark extract. To me, it just smells "Massage." Mainly because when I get a massage, the aromatherapy oils I pick have lavender in it.. but it just makes me sigh and smile and go to a happy place. Check it out!!! Ok... back to work.

Genius child? I think so.

So, this weekend I realized that my 1 year, 8 month old son can count to five... maybe six. I was counting his buttons (like I always do) to distract him while my husband was changing his diaper and after I said one, he said two. I said, "That's right. Good job! Two!" And then he said, "Tree." O_O

"Three, Thomas... that's right!"

And I turned to my husband, and said, "Holy shit, Kenny. Did you hear that? He just counted to five!"

The depth of my pride and amazement is unbelievable. My little boy is growing up! Before you know it, he'll be saying the ABC's and going to Kindergarten!!!!

Cute moment of the weekend... I took Thomas to the Explorium, which is just fantastic because it has a ton of stuff that he can do and I don't have to chase him around (since it's basically corralled). He was standing there, cute as a button in his little yellow smock, playing in the water feature that they have. This little girl around 3 or 4 moved over next to him and he turned to her with a HUGE grin on his face and said, "Hiiiiii!!!" Or phonetically... "Hi-eee."

My heart just melted like chocolate. :)
