3 Hats, 2 for Emma + 1 for Bobby

I have been knitting lately and have finished 3 hats. I tried new patterns. Emma's hat is a pattern from the book "Scrumptious Toppers for Tots & Toddlers" by Debby Ware. The first try turned out a little large, so Emma has 2 hats -- one for this year and one for next. I made Bobby a cute stocking hat with ear flaps and ties from a pattern named "The Hudson Hat!" that I found online.

Emma stopped by today and she modeled both her "this year's hat" and Bobby's too! So there is no question - Bobby's Hat is blue, green, and red and Emma's hats are the ones in pink.

Whale Pool

We bought this Whale Pool at Pottery Barn Kids. Here are some picture of Emma in the Whale Pool on Saturday. You can hook a hose up, and it sprays water. There is plenty of room for Bobby to play in it with Emma.

Saturday morning play at Nana's

Emma came over early this morning and stayed through her afternoon nap. Mommy needed a much deserved break. We went non-stop and accomplished the following many activities packed into our morning before her nap -

  • Swim time in Nana's Whale Pool on the patio

  • Rocking and story time on the porch (3 little pigs is the current favorite)

  • Snack - Apple juice and fruit snacks (4 packs of fruit snacks!)

  • Matching game in the tent (Yes, Nana was in the tent too)

  • Wiggles and snuggling

  • Red Rover with the bugs, lizards, and snakes

  • Lunch and video

  • 1st bath in Nana's big bath tub (Emma has outgrown the sink)

Here are my favorite shots from our morning together.
