Because I'm the mom and I said so.

Long awaited reveal of the Vacation Knitting, reluctantly modeled by my suddenly vocal 2 year old...("no, sweater mama. NO SWEATER!")



Yes. I made him pose.

As you may notice, this is another example of my penchant for this top-down raglan from Knitting Pure and Simple (too lazy and slightly feverish so no link for you.)

Birthday party #2 was a raging and low-key success.


And I learned that children are suckers for stuff on sticks.
(see the long stabby rods of fruit below)
And green frosting.


This party's cake took the form of a yummy carrot bundt cake, with green cream cheese frosting, and matching vegan cupcake sidekicks, so noone was left out.

So that should about do it for the birthday shenanigans.

...for a while, anyway.

The pout compliments the sweater nicely! Your giraffe cake is inspiring.

Oh poor babe !
But an excellant job on the sweater!
The party was fun, your yard is a lovely oasis in our teeming metropolis.
You should have a big girl/boy party out there before the good weather ends. Gudy

Love the sweater! Did you put that on him in 80 degree heat? Food on a stick rules!
