Before I forget, here’s a photo of my little matzoh ball at the first seder, last Saturday night. He enjoyed his first taste of puntzles (the small matzoh meal puffs that you put in soup) and was quite adorable in his “Kosher for Passover” bib!

I didn’t realize until too late that the backlight made shadows across his face.

Apparently Yannick doesn’t realize that either because this is the photo he took for me yesterday.

It’s Mommy with Jakob at 49 weeks.
I love this photo- this is what he does all day long. Whenever he wants a kiss, he reaches up, holds your face, closes his eyes and kisses. It is the sweetest thing ever!

When Yannick got home I left Jakob with him and went for a much-needed hair appointment. Here is the end result:


I still look exactly the same but don’t have the 4″ roots like I did before. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I tried a new salon because my old one is about 25 minutes away from my house. They also have the same work schedule as me, which means that I have to either convince my colorist to stay late for me one night and tip her really well to thank her, or I have to get up at 6:30am to get dressed and drive there for a 7:15 appointment on a Saturday, so I can have them do my hair and still get myself to work for 10:00am. NOT fun. This new place is open until 9pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and is literally 5 minutes from my house. Plus the girl (Kristin) who did it is amazing. She did the hair at Robyn’s wedding and it was stunning, and she even fixed(ish) the horrible flower-basket nasty hairdo my mom’s guy did on me. I will definitely be going back to Kristin.

Ok- so knitting. I have been knitting dishcloths for our WEBS trip this weekend. You’ve all now seen the Habs one, and I also made a fleur-de-lys one to represent Quebec…and to represent Montreal I made one with…a bagel on it. πŸ™‚

I worked on Jakob’s sweater while at the hairdresser, and am at the shaping decreases on the last sleeve. I’ve decided not to do the hood as the pattern calls for, but to do a shawl collar instead, so the sweater is almost finished.

I think I have to make myself an official knitting “to do” list so I don’t fall behind. That being said, here it is:

1. Finish Jakob’s Cabled Cardigan – due end of May/June

2. Knit 1 of the 2 Family Circle dinosaurs for Jakob for his birthday – due end of May/June

3. Knit the other dinosaur for Jakob for Jakob (optional) – due end of May/June

4. Design the June sock club sock for Robyn’s Nest’s sock club – due end of May/June

4. Design project #1 for Mary Maxim contest – due June

5. Design project #2 for Mary Maxim contest – due June

I think those are the most important things right now.
