We went to the pediatrician's today. Ronan is 39 1/4 inches tall (90%) and 30lbs (40%). This is a huge jump for Ronan - he's never been above the 10% in weight! Seamus is 38 1/8 inches tall (70%) and 31 1/2lbs (50%)! This is a big up and down. Both the boys were at 95% for height at their two year appointment so Seamus is slowing down in growth. Seamus is starting to pack on some weight - how? - I haven't a clue since is he is mister, go, go, go! They were very excited to go to the doctor's office today so that they could ask if they could have peanuts now! :-D They were cleared for nuts! I'm crossing my fingers the boys love PB&J! That would make my life so much easier!
Of course, you rack your brain trying to figure out what would be a good gift (and they're only three!) - and you think you've got it (see below)...
...and this is what they fell in love with...
...miniature trash cans and a toy garbage truck purchased on eBay for a total of $17!

This is my first textured sock pattern. I love it! These will be gifted a little late as they were supposed to be a Mother's Day gift for my mother-in-law. This is the Froot Loop pattern.
This Cabled Bag will be for me (eventually).
Though I love this sock - I'm finding it difficult to finish the second one. The pattern is pretty basic. This is a toe-up pattern. I learned (a) the Turkish Cast-on and (b) how to knit a sock. I have to give a shout out to my model - Seamus Patrick.
