My firstborn had a birthday today.
Happy Birthday, Isaiah!
We love you so much!
|Just after you were born.|
|Mommy & baby Isaiah, 5 days old.|
|My little bro took these food pics with my new fancy cam.|
|This is Nüsslisalat from my mom's garden. It's called "Lambs Lettuce" or "Mache Lettuce" in English. Here's a little more about this hard to find lettuce.|
|$1 socks at Target.|
|Isaiah was mixing colors and naming them. He was making a lot of "army-green" and "chartreuse". I didn't even know what color chartreuse was until he showed me.|
|We made little Fredericks from Frederick by Leo Lionni.|
|Three books and a cardigan-to-be atop my knitting box.|
|Breadsticks - I just sprinkled a little table salt over the butter because our butter is unsalted.|
|My "new" knitting box. I was using this box for my seasonal picture books, and had my knitting in a basket. The yarn kept getting snagged on the basket, so I switched the two. Now I have a knitting box and a book basket. I made that box in gradeschool in Switzerland.|
|In the background you can see some of the little art works, cards, and crafts we show off on the strings that hang along the wall.|
|When sitting in my reading nook, the first thing I see when looking up is my pretty bookshelf and the trees beyond the large window.|
