What My Mama Made Me
Do you remember last year about this time? I had a birthday then. Guess what?! I had another one this year! Can you believe it-- a birthday every year?! I thought last year was pretty cool, but this year was so much cooler. In fact, I had an entire birthday weekend.
But I am a pretty little person and I can only do little posts at a time, so I will start by telling you about one of my birthday presents. My mama made me this play vest. In fact, she made it all by herself. She came up with what she wanted to make, and then she got some paper and did some writing and then she would knit and sometimes she had to pull out some of what she had already knit (she calls it "ripping" and she is never very happy when she is doing it, but I think it looks like fun!), and finally this is what she made me!
We live in the country and have a little zoo: Three indoor cats (Audrey, Edgar, and Orange), too many outdoor cats, and our little parrot lovebird named Duncan. Our daughter, Sylvia, was born in October 2008; our second daughter, Veda, was born in January 2010; and our third daughter, Guinevere "Evvie," was born November 2011.
