Mommy's Big Girl

The last few days, Tiri has been exploring the wild world of (semi)solid foods.

She started eating cereal in her bottle once in a while when she was around four months, but now she is eating with a spoon. She will be six months old tomorrow, and it is time.

She now eats her cereal with a bit of cinnamon and a miniscule amount of brown sugar. It is very popular, she lunges for the spoon like she thinks it's going to escape. I don't mind such zeal, because I figure she will be finicky soon enough.

Yesterday she tried Sweet Carrot baby food. It was not popular. The face she made said it all, and the spitting and such removed any sliver of a doubt. I'll try it again some other time, as one is supposed to when introducing new foods, but not for a while.

She also tried bananas. Those she wasn't sure about at first, but by the time I had coaxed half the jar into her mouth, she was into them. I'll be adding those to the shopping list, as with her WIC check she will be getting something like 5x16 jars of fruits and veggies.

Today she tried Sweet Peas. The first spoonful wasn't recieved very well, but I gave her a few more and she ended up happily finishing the whole jar. She has always had a good appitite, and I think this whole flavors and various types of food theory will be mostly enjoyable for the both of us, at least until she gets finicky.

I can't wait to get her more kinds and create lots of fun meals for her.

Nine Lines Washcloth

Hello again. How is everyone? It's going about the same here, Jerek's still in the same shape. I did have a nice weekend. It was the circuit assembly, which is a two day series of Bible talks that takes place every year, along with the District Convention (three days) and the Special Assembly Day (one day.) There were many upbuilding Bible-based talks, and it was good to see a lot of people I haven't seen in a while.

As you can tell by the title of the post, though, the assembly isn't the main point of my writing to you this time. I made a washcloth last week. I used a stitch pattern that I learned last fall from a afghan block. It was called Plowed Rows, but I didn't think that name fit the washcloth. Instead I am calling it Nine Lines, because it has nine lines. (I know, ain't I creative? (-:)

Here is the cloth. Not a great photo, but as good as I can do right now.





And on to the pattern.

I think this would be a great pattern to learn how to slip stitches with…
