This is what we do a lot of

This is what we both like to do a lot of lately! Alli's been smiling a lot too just haven't captured a picture of it yet. She's going on an outing today to visit Nonna, her great grandma. Then my good buddy Sarah is coming by for a visit. She is such a good girl, mommy is very lucky. She loves her little bouncy chair, it is our centerpiece for the table at dinner time.
Cloth diapering is turning out to be pretty simple. I was worried at first until I got the hang of it. There are certain types I bought I definitely prefer. The prefolds seem to wash up the best out of everything.
The garden is doing very well, so far we've had collard greens, radishes, lettuce and kale. I will take some pictures of it soon. On the knitting front I'm going to start a few new projects as thank you gifts.

How can you resist her?

Little miss Allison is doing very well and so is the rest of the family. Grandma from Canada is here for a visit this weekend. She took big brother down to Mystic today to give him some special time with her. Mommy has figured out she can nurse and knit at the same time, yipee! The boppy pillow is definitely getting a lot of use.
Daddy's been working hard all week. Today's project is building steps up to the hill in back for a solar water heater. We are having a serious heat wave here so I'm a little concerned about him sweating so much in the sun.
Big thank you's to everyone for the support, cards and presents. Allison is one lucky little girl to have so many people who love her.
