Ready for some Baby Cuteness?

Does it get any cuter than this?


I can take pictures with my camera if I turn it to manual focus, which as you can see, I'm not very good at. The children rarely hold still long enough for me to really get the focus right. But my baby is so cute, she looks good even when she's slighly fuzzy around the edges. I'm sure if I knew how to work the other fancy thingies on my camera I might get better at the focus thing, but that seems like it uses a lot of brain power. I don't have any spare brain power lying around right now. Mostly I'm just hoping I can get the camera fixed for my birthday. Until then I worry about all the events that will pass us by without a decent camera. *shrug* Such is life.

The hat is my own design. Sweet Pea loves the pool, but needed something to protect her poor noggin from the desert sun. I live in fear of a baby with a sunburn. A cotton hat seemed like the perfect solution. Just a basic hat with a picot edge and a large pink flower simply because I can. I mostly winged it and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out. It's actually cuter than it looks in the pictures, but with my mad camera skillz (yes skillz with a z! cause I roll like that) that's the best we're getting of my mad knitting skillz for now. I love it so much I slap the hat on her head anytime we leave the house. It makes her smell vaguely like chlorine, the poor child. Someday she will need therapy for all the things I have done to her in the name of cuteness. But except for the hat I let her skinny dip, so there's that on my side.

Speaking of rolling, Sweet Pea has taken up a new hobby: rolling! She can roll from her back to her front. She can't quite make it from her front to her back. She starts then it feels too much like falling so she stops. But she can roll from her back to her front like nobody's business. She rolls then waits for the applause. If we make the mistake of averting our eyes from the Sweet Pea show for a second and fail to cheer she gets very upset with us. And she isn't afraid to let us know. So my days are now spent watching her roll, cheering, and rolling her back onto her back, and doing it all over again. It's not the most exciting show, but who can resist this sweet face?

EEE! So cute! All she's missing is the cocktail to sip. Better make it a virgin White Russian. ;-)

Love her, love the hat! Did you write down the pattern, or could you? I don't have your mad knitting skillz. But I'd love to.
