Our Big Big Girl + Knits for our Purl
I have mentioned before that Josie is a big strong girl for her age. In fact, at almost 5 months she is wearing mostly 12-18 month clothing (in part because the cloth diapers add some junk to her trunk, but mostly because they fit!) Last night we had a visit from Josie's good friend Baby MoMo and her big brother, Ducky. As they sat together on the couch I was once again struck by the disparity in their sizes. (Keep in mind, MoMo is a week older than Josie, and was a pound lighter when she was born.)
When Noonie came to visit awhile back, she made a charming hat and thumbless mittens for Josie out of beautiful variegated merino wool yarn. At the time, the weather was still quite sultry, so the lovely knits were displayed, unworn, on the shelf in Josie's room. The time has come, however, to layer up, and the other day I prevailed upon Josie to model them. She was surprisingly obliging. Thanks again, GA Noonie!
