I took an unintentional 3.5 month hiatus from blogging and quite a bit has changed since I last posted, like, let’s see: our home, the weather, the number of people in our family, the overall shape of my body, amount of sunlight in each day. . . I have lots of thoughts, pictures, news, and on and on to share, but for now, here are some highlights:
April 1-we moved from 107 to 101 Reykjavik, to an awesome flat facing the Tjorn in the center of town. It was nice being next to Laugardalur park, but I’m much happier downtown where I don’t have to take the bus to get anywhere.
April-May, sometime–it stopped getting dark, at all, ever.
May 7th–Baby girl enters the world!! I really look forward to sharing her insane birth story and a few precious pictures in an upcoming post:)
May 8-June 2–first our friend Kara visits, then my mom, then my sister! Several fun day trips with everyone to other fantastically beautiful parts of this country
June–settling into life with two kids, fortunately with the help of some gorgeous weather! Lots of time spent at the playground, in the kitchen, at playgroups, and the library.
Projects finished since March 13–Everett’s sweater (ALMOST in time for Easter), E’s Easter basket (now toy storage), easter garlands and letters for friends back home, E’s overalls, knit baby blanket, tiny baby sweater and matching hat, tote bag for a friend’s birthday, fathers’ day present.
In other news: a new addiction to Pinterest (something easily explored one-handed and while nursing or bouncing a fussy baby) has led to a growing project list and several yummy kitchen experiments.
Pictures and links to all patterns, tutorials, and recipes forthcoming!
