You’re My Little Girl

on a warm sunny day in 1993 i went into labor. the next day, i went into shock. i couldn’t believe i was holding a baby in my arms that was mine. her tiny fingers and toes, her soft little whisps of blonde hair, her big blue eyes. *sigh* little did i know i was in for the time of my life!

over the years my Lovebug has been my only constant companion. always by my side. we’ve been through a lot. we’ve laughed together, cried together, played together and learned together. she has been the source of a lot of things in my life. good things. hard things. sweet things. i don’t want to let her go. i don’t want to be drawing closer to the time where she’ll leave my arms. it’s bad enough she barely fits into them anymore. but let her go i must. just a little. a little more.

my one-and-only baby is 15 today. and i can hardly believe what a beautiful young lady she’s turning into. as i look at her still innocent face, i see joy, peace and love. i also see a bit of me in there and it makes me smile. *sigh*

Happy Birthday my sweet Princess Lovebug. i love you so, so much. you will always be my little girl!

Like Mother, Like Daughter

my daughter has finally picked up her needles to work on her first garter scarf. i’m letting her go at her own pace so it’s ‘her’ decision to knit. (KWIM?)
it all started when we were oot and aboot and came upon a yarn shop. as i was going in to check it out, she asked if i would get her some yarn. um, yah! what good mommy would say ‘no’ to a sweet request like that? my instructions were: it needs to be soft and blue. please. sure honey! she wanted Blue Sky (awww, doesn’t that just warm your heart?) but they didn’t carry it, (drat!) so we compromised and i bought her a skein of Berroco Comfort–in red. (she didn’t like the blue or the green so that’s how we ended up w/the red) i think we did well.
she decided to knit a long, skinny scarf. it’s a little less intimidating and goes a lot faster. i think she’s doing marvelous and i can’t wait until she’s done. these first few pics are from a few weeks ago when she first started…
in the hole,

around the back,
pull it through, and off jumps jack! (or something like that)

and this is her progress as of today. that’s my girl!

Where Am I?
