It's the bunny tail hat from 'Itty Bitty Hats' knit from two strands of Elann Baby Cashmere in the Serengeti sand colourway. I used two balls for the 3 month size but my gauge was a little off and the hat is already too small for my growing boy. The cuff keeps rolling up his ears! So off to the gift closet it goes...
That's right! My lemondrop is already growing out of his clothes! It seems to be going so much faster the second time around and I feel like I don't have the time to take it all in. Life is just sooo much busier with two somehow...or maybe it isn't so much that there are two of them but rather that one is a busy toddler who just wants to hang out with mommy all day: play doh, colouring, snuggling, swinging in the backyard, playing in the sandbox, kicking a ball, taking walks around the block, putting puzzles together, singing songs... He's got so much on his agenda everyday and likes to hang out with mommy which is sweet and wonderful really except that it leaves few precious moments for me to hang with Lolo and just take it all in.
I've been quite blessed with another patient and sweet child and perhaps even more blessed that my boys see the wonder in each other. Julian just loves his brother and is constantly going up to him to say 'hi Lolo, how are you today?' with his little southern accent (we really don't know where he got the accent but it's really hilarious!) and kissing or petting his head. At the mall today, when Lolo got a little agitated, Julian casually reached over and held his hand. In the car, he sang a little song for Lolo to help him feel better. And Lolo? Well he just loves lookin' up to his older brother. So sweet ;0) And this week, Lolo smiled at us for the first time! A big toothless grin. Sigh. I'm completely head over heels in love with him too.
My heart is so very, very full.
