Oh my, those last lines sound quite like how I expect my little Colin to be (5 months just now). He's quiet, content, always smiling, but wants EVERYTHING in his mouth! Don't know how I'm going to manage things with two Lego fanatics in the house. I just love the clothes! I must get a pants pattern, when I draw my own they never turn out right.

So very precious. My new boy is just 11 days old - I read your post and sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer to him, and he gave me two big smiles!

Oh how many times have I asked my son not to wipe his hands on his shirt. He found an alternative solution of course - now he wipes them in his hair! Napkin shmapkin...
Two weeks ago we left our home in surbubia and rented a cottage built half over a lake, and it was truly wonderful exploring the beaches and hiking trails with our three year old. He looked forward to visiting the forest every day, and rocks from the beach were his "toys". How I wish we didn't have to drive three hours to find such a place, so we could go more regularly.

Does this ever bring back memories. I knit the sweetest sweater vest for my (then) 2 year old, who screamed and ran every time I tried to put it on him. I couldn't even get one picture of him wearing it! http://ravel.me/DreamyMama/phmcibv I'm planning on starting baby #2 in handknits from birth, it'll be a while before he can run ;)
I just laughed out loud - the term "Ketchup plants" will now forever live in my mind. Go Harper!

Wow, what a perfect addition to a beautiful corner - I'm truly amazed at the transformation! Now I REALLY must get on with sprucing up our old, stained kitchen chairs...

I was happy to see recommendations in Canada change a couple of years ago - they are supposed to be re-training doctors to do natural breech births! I expect it will take a while for it to become common practice though: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health/c-section-not-best-option-for-breech-birth/article1186104/ I'm so happy you got your homebirth, I had been very curious about how it went for you this time! I love the little outfits. My husband and I were absolulely convinced we were having a girl this time - the the ultrasound two weeks ago revealed BOY - I was so shocked I was hysterical! I can't imagine how much more upside-down I would have been in the delivery room, with all those hormones thrown in the mix.

So glad to hear a bit more about your family's first month with this sweet little girl, and that it was so rich. I'm nervous about introducing baby #2 in October (I'll have two boys!), but I know it will all fall into place eventually :) Take care.

Thanks so much for the sword tutorial - my son is constantly "chasing bad guys" with whatever implement he can manages to get his hands on - a stick, the probe for the oven (yikes!), etc... - the trick is getting those things away from him without making him run FASTER and impale himself. Must make him a sword!

So sweet... I have a three year old boy and just found out that he will be joined by a baby BROTHER in October. I'll stick around to read more about this new world of brotherhood we're about to enter :) Your boys just look so sweet!

Such a beautiful little being, and a beautiful way to spend her first days in this world, surrounded by quiet love. I'm brought to tears again.

I love the hat, I wonder if my son would actually wear one this summer if I made it with fabric he picked, hmmm... I especially love how NOT impressed Mr. Rooster looked as he got kissed there, ha!

Ha! "I'm part machine! I'll think of that line every time you blog now :) I'm glad to hear your recovery is going so well, especially with all that wood to pile (that chore stopped being fun for me after the first year I did it as a child...).

Oh my, this post had me laughing! The poplar, the spilled sap, Harper "crashing" in the sled - I am just loving your new farm adventures! We use nothing but real maple syrup here too, though ours is from Costco ;) Lovely jars of deliciousness you have there.

I love that blue and yellow ball of yarn in the top left of that first photo - so cheery! These days, I'm obsessed with finding the perfect baby knitting patterns - in another six weeks I should hopefully have the energy to actually knit again after work!

Now that is REALLY getting creative! Excellent idea for shelves. I absolutely love Ada's room. This reminds me - I have some pirate embroidery patterns from Sublime Stitching I want to make up and hang on my son's walls - must get on that!

Nothing like a beautiful belly shot to start my week off - I'm so excited for you! I most certainly had an inkling of "what's to come" this weekend, as the snow melted completely from our driveway, and the sunlight seemed just *that* much sweeter.

Aww, love the little belly shot! I just found out last week that we're expecting #1, and I've already placed my order for some Quince & Co Chickadee to make these Lovebug Booties! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lovebug-booties I'm a Eucalan user too, love the lavender scent :)

So sweet. My son has taken to hugging my arm tight as I knit beside him on the couch - best part of my day!
