• Love morning naps.
• Love imaginative play with trains. These all have names assigned by Jackson and come complete with stories made up by his almost-3-year-old mind. They are as loved by him as most teddy bears and stuffed animals are by others.
• Love progress on an old knitting project that barely got started last year. Love having a "duh." moment when encouraged by my Monday knitting group to knit it in one piece, at least up until the armholes (and by then, it'll be almost done, since it's a cabled vest for Dear Old Dan).
(It's not really being knit on all these needles. I just put the ends on my size 8 straights to measure the width. I'm using a 24" circular with all of the stitches just jammed on there.)
• Love good health. It's slowly coming back to us at the end of this (long) week. (This was taken mid-sickness, mid-week. Also love Thomas the Tank Engine DVDs for helping this non-TV-watching family through the darkness.)
(That's Henry, Owl, and a basket full of the beloved trains, all front and center for each viewing.)
• Love that Baby A's hands are starting to "work" now. She grabs toys, the cat, her brother, her mom's nose, and of course, that yummy thumb that's in her mouth all the time.• Love that Dan and I are going to a movie tonight, alone. We don't know what we're going to see yet, but we don't really care either. We're just going to show up and buy a ticket for whatever starts next. It will be our second big-screen movie of 2008.
