Just something I whipped up this past week. A new blue vest for Frances. If you’re interested, here is where I found the pattern. I am trying to get away from the colour pink. It seems as though I went a little over board with the excitement of having a girl. Frances looks so delightful in blue as it brings out the blueberry in her eyes. I was never very partial to pink and think gender colours are silly. I love the fact that my six year old nephew wears a pink shirt. I guess it’s because his parents are so cool! When I worked in the yarn shop I heard some pretty ridiculous things about gender and colour. Did you know that boys should not wear red!? No, apparently red is a feminine colour!
Today Frances is eleven months old! She is growing into such a fun little girl. Woo, woo, woo (woof) she says all the time. Aouw, aouw is the sound a kiy (kitty) makes. She says hi, ma ma, da da and na na. Ging, ging is another word she uses a lot but we haven’t figured out what that means yet. Sometimes I think there’s a snake in the house because she hisses sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!! I find it so amusing to watch her process the associations. The other night she was waring a bib with a duck on it. While I was feeding her I was talking about the duck and making quacking noises. Later in the evening as I was reading her a story, a duck appeared. I pointed to the duck and started quacking. She pulled on her shirt and started looking for that duck! It is so wonderful to watch your child grow and learn!
