That was kind of a cheap thrill to get to hold day-old babies. Both beautiful and healthy and the moms seem to be doing well too. I had forgotten about the way that a newborn seems to warp the space time continuum so that time freezes and everyone gets sleepy.
I did a little sewing too. I put new edging around Bearcat. And I made LaLa a cape. She got a Superman T-shirt at the comic book store the other weekend. It was finally washed and she wore it on Sunday. She tried using her knit blankie for a cape but it was too long - someone had to run behind her when she made laps through the house, like she was one of the cats from Catsenstein. Asked a few design questions and a trip to the fabric store for material and buttons. Later that afternoon we had a pretty spectacular cape. She wore it out to Tijuana Flats and Target. According to LaLa, Superman:
- Likes vegetables
- Holds hands in the parking lot
- Flushes the toilet
- Washes after the potty
- Doesn't need to take blankey into Target.
The Cape also happens to go with her Cars pajamas.
In knitting news, I got the heel turned on my pink and grey sock and I started a hat for Kate. Well, I intended it for Kate's drive but LaLa seems to be claiming it for her own. Not sure what's going to happen there. I just know I need to get on the stick and finish my red scarf because that deadline is first. I think it's almost done, will measure it tonight.
