, Finished Project
You are probably sick of reading about our sleeping adventures. Well, you’re in luck because I think this is the last post.
Yep, last night, Isabelle spent the entire night in her own bed. And I had the big bed all to myself. Even Alan wasn’t in it. It was so lonely. Well, not for long, right? Like in 20 days or so the baby will be here and if he’s like Isabelle we’ll have a full bed for the next four years. D’oh!
That happened a lot quicker than expected. And with a lot less tears than expected. I seriously thought it would be harder. Ok, you know, now I’ve stepped in it. I’ve probably totally jinxed myself now and I’ll have a hell of a time getting Isabelle to sleep in her bed.
And now onto the octopus. The title of this post, sleeping octopus is not about Isabelle. I should have titled it Sleeping, (comma) Octopus. This is what it is what I was referring to:
Another crocheted toy. Isabelle chose the colors. I love making things with her input.
Well, anyhoo, the pattern is from Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet (it’s the same author as the other crochet book I mentioned). I’ve been tweeting about the octopus for a couple of days now, how impatiently Isabelle was waiting for me to finish her. And now she’s done. Isabelle loves her. She really loves everything I make her. It’s nice to be appreciated.
But Isabelle thinks I can whip these things out no problem. She’s asking for the baby octopus now. And how can I say no to that face and the compulsion to crochet?
Yes, compulsion. I’m really obsessing over it lately. My hands feel empty when I’m not making something. So off to make a baby octopus for my
baby not baby anymore, my little girl, who sleeps in her own bed. Waaaah!
