So, I've known I'm some what of a perfectionist for a long long LONG time now. I have proof now that I seriously must have some OCD issues. I've started a knitting project that I think may be doable, but it's a far stretch from being easy for me. In the past 3 days I've started and restarted this project at least 2 times each day. Last night I decided that was it, it was the last time I was restarting, boo boos and mistakes, oh well, i'd live with them. HA! This morning I started looking at it and ripped it out again. UGH! http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer09/PATTelenka.php
January is almost to its end. Bring on February... I'm excited to see what February will bring. I know it will bring me another year older, but I can handle that... I can pretend I'm not turning 28, right? ;) Delaney is still teething, and it's a horrible thing. I feel so bad for her, well, except for when she bites me! Darn monster has SHARP teeth!!! Last night was the first night in quite a while that she slept through the night. I, however did not. I was so worried because she WASN'T waking up that I had to keep checking on her!! She slept from 9:30pm until 12am (cried a bit and went back to sleep) and then slept until 11:30am.... when I woke her up. I got up and checked her 5 times between 5am and 11am. At least she got a good night's sleep.
January also brought me to bringing my sewing machine home, getting it set up and sewing at home. I'm excited to have it here.... only problem is I have SO many projects I want to do and fabric is starting to pile up. We seriously need a house so I can have a sewing room!!

I guess last year's resolution to blog more, kinda went out the window. But now that Delaney is here I have more reason to keep things updated. We had an awesome Thanksgiving, a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year's (Laney stayed up WAY too late, she didn't get to sleep until after 11:30pm!). We got to spend Christmas Eve, Christmas and the day after with Miss Bethany. Boy do the girls LOVE to play with each other! It's amazing to see Bethany so excited each time she visits and her amazement with all of her baby sister's new skills.
Dave and I got to see my WSU Cougs play basketball in person. We watched both the men's and women's teams. It was fun to see the guys I watch on TV live and in person... Boy they are MUCH bigger in real life. The TV just doesn't do them justice. We watched the games here at the Toyota Center, and I took along my knitting for half-time and between games. This one's for Erin, because while at the games and knitting I learned that knitting IS in fact exercise!! See, I ended up dropping my yarn, and it rolled under the seat below mine. Those seats are WAY too close together. I spent a good portion of the second game TRYING to get the yarn back.... I ended up having to sit down on the floor (eww) and ever so carefully pull the yarn and then I was able to stab it with the knitting needle and get it back. I was all stretched and contorted in order to achieve this feat! It was indeed a workout. There you have it Miss Erin!! By the way, both the Men's and Women's teams kicked some b-ball butt and WON! WOooo HOooo!!
Miss Delaney Ray is now 7 months old... Where oh where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday that I was big and fat and swollen up pregnant, thinking she'd NEVER get here. She's getting her second tooth... Teething totally bites! Every day brings us new adventures and accomplishments. We're still working on crawling, so far she's able to scoot, roll, and crawl BACKWARDS. She sits up so well and says Mommom mom and mama... No Dada yet (I think Dave's bummed by this). But I feel super special. She has such a personality too! Laney definitely is my little ray of sunshine and keeps me laughing. I've been trying my hand at making videos and posting them on youtube.
I've been working again semi-part time. Whenever weather allows and I have a sitter for Laney. Mostly she stays with my WONDERFUL baby sister, who is the BEST sister in the world. I love my sisser very very much! Laney loves her Auntie too!! I've also been knitting lots and going to MOPS. Having lots of fun. Ok, that's about it for now. Time to fold the never ending laundry.
