I’m so disappointed that I’m still not able to access the reader card for the old Olympus camera. The new printer was delivered yesterday afternoon but another task had my full attention late into the night. Now my brain is too crowded by sleep cells to deal with installing a new piece of hardware. Pictures will be forthcoming as soon as they can be pried from the camera.
I knit a hoodie cardigan for Faith’s birthday learning many things in the process. For one, just because the back is finished in three days does not mean that it will be a snap to finish. For the first time I encountered such beasties as cap sleeves, side seams, and sewing in a zipper. It was begun during the coast retreat three weeks ago, finished this morning about 10:30, this after two nights staying up until 1am.
Her party was at 12:30 today.
Granddaughter Faith turned one year old today. One year ago we were rejoicing that the doctor’s diagnosis, based on multiple 3D ultrasounds, proved incorrect. There’s been no sign of Dandy-Walker Syndrome and she has a clean bill of health. We are deeply grateful for God’s intervention in direct answer to many prayers, and faith.
Today Faith is almost walking, she could if she didn’t think about it. She took two steps at the pumpkin patch a few days ago when she fancied a pumpkin and forgot that she wasn’t holding a hand. We long to see her independence and encourage her not to hold our hands. In a few years we’ll long for her to reach out and grasp our hands.
She says “kitty”. Any and all cats have captured her fascination and attention since she was old enough to turn her head and follow one with her eyes.
It was funny to see her ignore the piles of gifts in front of her while she opened and shut her first card blabbering as she pretended to read. She likes books, and she blabbers. Then she became enthralled with all the tissue paper.
She got naked and ate cake.
(Literally, except for diapers.)
We are blessed.
