How you doing?

I am a little late on the uptake today...but, how is everyone today? The one pretty great thing about being so late to both blog and read blogs is that hopefully everyone has new posts so that I am not just clicking on their site every two minutes when I am bored...Did they post now? Oh, no. Now? mm. Okay, how about now?

So BlogSecret was kind of awesome. I found my secret's host and was able to gage the reaction to my secret by reading all the comments. Overall, I found it to be a great experience. I already have my next BlogSecret post idea if the opportunity presents itself.

Second, but not totally unrelated, the blogosphere is a totally rad place to hang out. My sister mentioned last year that she really thought a knitted candy corn hat would be a very cool thing to make for her toddler. Things got hectic and she wasn't able to take knitting lessons, so I decided that I would ask Angela of FluidPudding fame if she would knit the hat on commission. (How fancy am I that I commissioned work?) Angela was pretty booked, but referred me to Karen, from a St. Louis area knitting guild, and she totally knitted the hat, and mailed it to me and I then mailed it to said toddler. How cute is this kid wearing a candy corn hat?




How funny is his "smile for the camera"? I had never realized that little kids do that. It is new for Steamboat, but he seems to be consistent with this smile lately...Last month when we were on the hayride at the pumpkin farm/corn maze, an adorable little girl made the same grimacy smile for every photo. Her dad said, "She smiles just like Chandler Bing"...

But just in case you don't know what stranger dad meant...

Hands down cutest baby ever.

This is funny because in my post I was going to talk about how in Friends Ross laminated his list...

That was great - and why is it that all toddlers seem to have that same smile? Are we all born with that and only Chandler didn't grow out of it?

Love the hat - if I liked candy corn I'd ask for one in adult sizes!
