I was going to write this post under the guise of the hat I made for him, but c’mon, I really want to share these pictures!
.
FACE!

Pattern: Basic Winter Hat – Back to Basics // Raveled
.
Taking these pictures proved to be quite a challenge! For one, Lucas discovered his foot!
.
Oh hai, I haz foot!
.
And once he found his foot, he could not take his eye off of it!
.
Heh
.
Luckily, the cats were able to distract him long enough for him to take his gaze away from his foot.

Distracted by a cat.

But back to the hat, I really love how those two simple colors came together. I only wish it didn’t feel like Summer outside so he could wear it without his poor little head breaking out into a sweat!

Hello my pretties! Would you like to become cake? Ok, I'll make cake.

The local farmers market returned this weekend from its holiday hiatus and I was really excited to take Lucas there to explore all the lovely produce. We showed up at our usual time in the afternoon and the place was nearly cleaned out! I guess we weren’t the only ones that missed the market during the two week hiatus! I did score these lovely blueberries.
.
When I saw them I thought of the yummy Blueberry Buttermilk Cake that I made last summer and decided we needed to have it again.
.
Nom nom nom
.
Oh my gosh! This cake was just as delicious as the first time I made it! I used Smitten Kitchen’s Rasberry Buttermilk Cake, which I love because you can substitute the raspberries with any berry of your choice. Also, it’s a really easy and quick recipe!

Crazy 2-month old showing off.

This kid looks like he’s going to crawl soon. I don’t know how I feel about that!

My creation

Look, I’m not saying I’m making a commitment to any kind of 366 photo project (I can barely keep up with blogging!), but with the new resident in the home and my hand iPhone always by my side, it’s a little easier to take a picture a day because… well look at that face, I just can’t resist taking his photo!

So there you go, the first week of January according to my Instagram pics. Not pictured: secret knitting!!!

I’ve been a bad blogger (and knitter) because I’ve been busy finishing up my last college quarter EVER!  I’m beyond happy about this because now I can focus on the fun things in life, like knitting, free evenings in which I DON’T have to be in a classroom, and most of all that little baby that is growing in my belly!
.
Wait, what????!!?!  Yep, we’re due in November and super excited!  Here is the first thing I bought for the kid:

RAD CAT!

A kitteh from RadCat! I can’t wait to throw it in the baby’s crib. So today, I will finish up my last college paper ever and than try to comprehend my new freedom from academia! Happy Sunday everyone!
