The audiologist confirmed that Liam has 2 properly functioning ears. Whew. We expected as much, but it’s still a relief.

In other week 11 news. This child is growing at an alarming rate. He’s now weighing in at 14+ pounds. Oy! He ‘s a happy little guy who has an infectious smile. And the most irresistibly kissable forehead. Seriously, resistance is futile…

We’re both very excited for our upcoming trip to meet the family in PA.

and on the knitting front…

A super quick – like 4 hours including gauge recalulation and swatch – and easy hat. Adapted from EZ’s adult Snail Hat to fit Liam’s melon. Yeah, he’s not a big fan of hats…
great, another hat

Needles: US 9s 

Gauge: 3.5 sts = 1″ (for a finished circumference of 14″)

Mods: Completed 20 rounds, using a single strand of bulky weight yarn at a gauge of 3.5 sts = 1”. The hat is a bit long for our 9 week old, whose head is 16-inches in circumference.

 Hard to believe that 9 weeks have passed since Liam was born. Some days seemed to last forever – you know when he was nursing every 2 hours around the clock, but overall, the idea that he’s approaching three months is bizarre.

 So, according to the doctor, Liam only needs one middle of the night feeding and that’s what we’re working on this week. He’s still waking up for a second feed, but falling back to sleep with some soothing and his paci. Eliminating that middle of the night wake up is going to be tough, I suspect, as letting him cry seems to be beyond my abilities. Any advice?

 Will and Jennifer passed on their Bumbo. It’s still a workout for our little man to keep his head up, so Bumbo (much like tummy time) only lasts a few minutes. He sure looks cute in it though.

 Speaking of cute, check out these lashes…
