It’s been awhile since I posted anything. I’ve been making things and working on my living room (which will be finished by Wednesday!!!) and living life as usual, just not writing anything about it here. It’s an easy habbit to get out of.
Jonah had an ear infection last week. On Monday he was crying in pain that his ear hurt, but I couldn’t get him into the doctor until Tuesday. Tuesday morning he said everything felt better, but the outside of his ear was full of gross crusty gunk. The doctor looked in his ear and could barely stick her ear-looker-atter in it–it was so full of wax. She scraped and prodded and pulled out 3 chunks nearly the size of dimes…but there was more!!! The nurse came in to do an “Ear Irrigation,” which means that they squirt water into your ear with a syringe to flush the wax out and soak your clothes while you scream bloody murder. 2 hours later we headed up to the pharmacy with a perscription for antibiotics because they could finally see Jonah’s bulging pussy ear drum. He was a trooper. He sat still through it all and when the doctor was leaving our room at the very end he said, “She was a really smart doctor. She’s really smart. Really, really, really, really, smart.” You see, she gave him a stamp on his hand and that made up for the “Ear Irrigation” she had subjected him to.
Now (completely unrelated) Barry is totally done with school. We are now preparing for visitors. Barry’s family is coming on Friday. We are bracing for what promises to be an exhausting week, but definitely memorable. Many happy memories will be made.
Now (on another note) for some pictures. I would have liked to do this days ago, or even weeks, but the photo software is all on Barry’s computer–yeah, yeah, I’ve already told you that. Anyway, I knit a few toys and sewed a baby gift, so take a look:
Brenna wrote in the card “The bears name is Snowflake.” She’s made of polar fleece and totally baby friendly. Her head can’t pop off.
Here’s a side view:
Now for some more pictures of my first knitted toy. Brenna calls her Woolly, which isn’t the most creative name, but she’s made from handspun angora and stuffed with angora fluff, so it is fitting.
And here’s a little bear Jonah named Gordon. He’s made from 2 oz. of Blue Face Leceister wool–the kind that was included in my last batch of drop spindle kits. I had exactly the right amount of yarn with nothing to spare. I was holding my breath while knitting the last few rows!
