When They Smile

It just never fails… my life gets interesting, knitting is going well, I am positively surrounded by blog-able pictures and stories. And I find myself with absolutely no energy whatsoever.

Piffle.

I’m working on the energy thing, eating well and trying to get more rest. My sleep cycle got thrown all out of whack by work stress last month, but things seem to be calming down and getting back to whatever passes for normal around the office.

So here’s a lovely wee picture which serves as an excellent reminder for why I love knitting for expectant co-workers. The perfect buttons my mother always seems to find, the ‘ooohs’ and ‘aaahs’, the pictures of a sweater stretched over a pregnant belly… they’re wonderful and I love them.

But I like it best when they smile.

Adorable! I don't think anything can beat a baby's smile and when they're wearing something you've knit it's even sweeter. Hope you start feeling energised soon.

What a cutie! There is absolutely nothing more uplifting that a smile on a baby's face.

Getting healthier is on my agenda, too. I don't want to diet, just to be more aware of what's on my plate and how well I'm taking care of myself. I know what I need, now I just have to make sure I get it.

I have the same problem with finding the energy to actually write about all the things that are happening...I hear you!

Also have baby knits on my mind, as there are several expectant mothers in my friends and family...any suggestions?

Too cute! And your baby knitting is so fabulous! Children have been eating both my time and my brain - so if I haven't already said it - Happy 2010!
