The brother hand

Miss G and I were coloring earlier, and as she colored a large section, she used her left hand to support her right hand. She looked up at me and said, "I'm using my brother hand!" When I asked her why, first she said, "It doesn't talk!" (which I thought was hilarious, since little mister obviously doesn't speak yet), then after explaining to me that hands don't talk, she said that it was her brother hand because it was helping her sister hand!

Little Mister had a couple of happy times (for the first time ever!) in his stationary walker yesterday. Yippee! Of course, I had to ask people to keep bringing me things since he yells whenever I walk away from him while he's playing happily, and refuses to get happy again, even if I am coming right back! So I stood there and folded laundry while he played, and had to keep asking Daddyman and Big Guy to bring me hangers, move the wash into the dryer, etc.!

At least he let me sneak over to my purse to get the camera!

I finished my scarf to match Little Miss'. And I actually found another ball of the yarn I need to finish Big Guy's Weasley sweater!! Woo hoo! I thought I was almost out of it and was in serious doubt as to whether or not I'd be able to finish it. But I was digging through my stash last night looking for my next project to cast on (the Tasha bag project is staying in the car as my travel knitting since right now it's small and just a lot of stockinette stitch) and I FOUND MORE! "Oh frabjous day, callou, callay, she chortled in her joy!" (Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky, if you are wondering what nonsense I'm blathering!).

Sadly, Big Guy is home from school for the second day in a row because he has a nasty cough and sore throat. Yesterday wasn't actually a sick day, though, because school was cancelled due to flooding. We remain (mostly) dry here... a small leak in the roof and one in our master bedroom window. I forgot to take pictures of the lake in our backyard on Sunday morning. It was quite impressive!

I'll leave you with a quick picture of a rare moment of cooperation and peace between Big Guy and Miss G!
