A Morning with Sam.

Charlie's dad is on vacation this week, so Charlie enjoyed a leisurely breakfast out with his parents. And I got to spend two whole hours alone with Sam. This is the first time Katie's left him when he's been awake; I was honored.

She asked for photos and of course I obliged. Look at that tongue.

and those blue eyes.

I finally got a little smile...which I thought might even turn into a laugh.

Sadly not.

...and a few minutes later playtime was over.

(knitting time!)

And one last chapter in the sample knitting saga. Early this morning I wove in all the ends and steam-blocked the seams. I tried it on and it fits beautifully (whew!) Then I shared a quick photo with the designer and here's what she wrote back.
I feel better about the whole experience already :-)

What a nice morning. Sam looks a bit like his big brother there!

Sam is adorable, awake or asleep! My nephew and his partner had Halo sleepsacks on their baby registry, and once I figured out what they were I had to subject them to my "back in the old days we had to swaddle our babies without new-fangled contraptions" speech. (They are a pretty cool invention!) I'm glad the sample fits you and the designer is so appreciative!

No Tails FTW! Nice work. Sam is already capturing hearts. I have a feeling Charlie and Sam will make a dynamic duo.
