One week lost to the great beyond

So Eleri was sick last week. She had a fever that just would not go away.

She hasn't slept on the boppy since she was bitty, but that's about as far away from me as she would consent to being. Her fever hovered around 101 and I had to give her Tylenol every 4 hours. She just felt rotten, and thus I didn't get anything else done. Not even posting here.

In all of that, Rowan had his first day of second grade!

He's holding up his fingers to say: Second grade, day one.
This picture is acutally at the end of the day, since Eleri kept me up for a good chunk of the night before, Rowan and John decided to leave me sleeping and get to school without waking me.
Second grade is going well so far. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the year 'round school. He's going back to school, but it's not fall. Cool weather is not just around the corner. We still have hot, hot August to get through.

Eleri finally started feeling better again yesterday. It was a relief to see our smiling baby. It had been so long, we'd almost forgotten what it was like to not have her yelling at us. That's what her cry was like. It wasn't really a cry, it was more of a "ruuuuuuuuuuhhhh!" *shudder* Ya. Last week was rough.
But last night I was able to put the finishing touches on a baby gift.
Miss Cherry Dashwood by you.
That's the Miss Dashwood hat, done in caron simply soft and with the picture taken under really bad lighting conditions. But it's cute, and I'm going to make one for Eleri, too. I'd be tempted to keep this one if it would have fit her, but it's for a new baby and her head is too big.
I also have another baby gift to mail.
Sugarbubbie Halter by you.
This is the Sugarbubbie Halter dress, done in a yarn called Marble that I got at Great Yarns.
I also finished Eleri's snowblossom soaker, but have yet to get pictures. I need to weave in the ends. Why do I hate that part? It only takes a minute.
