I'll be spending part of my day today hangin' with my nephew. He was just 14 months old and I'm positively thrilled to say that I was witness on the day that will be forever known as the day that Mack started to walk. I was even able to catch a little bit of a movie on my digital camera. Unlike Ali, some of whose first steps I also have on film -- interrupting a friendly game of badminton by walking across the court -- step-step-step-BUM, step-step-step-BUM, step-step-step-BUM -- this little guy took OFF. A half-dozen unassisted steps late on Friday, 40 or more by Sunday. It's a full-time job trying to stay one step ahead of him now -- my house hasn't been child-proof in quite a few years!
The cuff of the first Celtic Braid Sock is going FAST! I was the first one at WW last night, so knit a few rounds before the meeting began. I think Katie will drive at least part of the way today, so more knitting in the car! I will definitely have something more to show tomorrow.
Speaking of WW, I was down .6 last night for a total of 9.8 -- ARRRGH, this first 10 is so elusive! I was pretty good last week -- walked to the bank one day, over to Mom's another -- drank more water, lots of veggies. I had margaritas, too, but they were wee ones and I was more aware and didn't over-do. Maybe I'll reach that milestone next week!
