Lily's head is getting too big for her newborn hat, so I knit her a new one (striped one on the right). I originally wanted it to be color locked, with all dark purple on the top but I ran out of yarn. Oh well!

Ready for her first road trip and overnighter. She's been practicing by sleeping longer - 9.5 hours the other night 😴. Let's hope she keeps this up since 4 of us are going to be sharing a room for the next few days and there's no worse sound than older brothers fake crying when he wakes up in the morning...😳

Our attempt at making Christmas breakfast fun. Apparently it was so fun that it warranted a tantrum. This is the calm after the storm 🤣

Happy birthday to my other half! Sorry you felt crummy today. Elliot wanted to make you a ‘poo-poo cake’ (it’s what he calls chocolate cake), but I vetoed that idea. Lily didn’t have an opinion (maybe next year!). Oh well, maybe it would have made you feel better though

Trying out this Advent calendar thing for Elliot. We didn't grow up with one so I'm not entirely sure what we should be doing each day. So far it's a mix of Bible verses, candle lighting, crafts, and food activities (like today's, which is decorating gingerbread men). Hopefully this is fun for him!

Anybody looking for a handmade christmas gift? I'm making a limited number of freshwater pearl necklaces and earrings. These are a lovely plum shade, which is actually a pretty versatile color. $30 for a 16" necklace, $36 for a pair of earrings, and the set of both is $60. Prices do not include shipping. If you're interested, email me! ✉️ in bio #estherkaojewelry

We have always had a Christmas tree but never a tree topper. I decided to change that this year and made us this one from jute string. It's not a star, but I think it completes the tree. I kinda want to make some matching ornaments...hmm...

Seven years ago, I️ made this crocheted flower headband for our newborn niece Emmy. My sister in law lent it to us for Lily to use when she found out we were having a girl earlier this year. It’s kind of neat that we ended up with it this many years later!

Elliot has been really into Playdoh recently, which means I've been sitting there playing with it too! Also, if you're wondering what the elephant is all about, his name is Elliot the Elephant and he's in a couple books that toddler Elliot happens to love right now. Thanks to @shelbssky for introducing us to the books a while back!

Earlier this week, I️ took Elliot and Hatdog to the park and he wanted to bring his kickball. While we were there, he dropped his ball and another dog got to it and popped it. Elliot didn’t cry, but he sure looked like he wanted to. It must have been a big deal to him, because since then, he’s been talking about how ‘a doggie broke ball,’ and ‘Daddy go shhhhh shhhh shhhh’ (and when he says this part, he mimics the motion for using a bike pump to try to resuscitate the broken ball) 😂

Happy eight years, @jeffkao ! We're getting old, but at least we get to get old together!

Two and a half months ago we were in podunk Missouri, waiting to see the total eclipse. I knitted this hat to pass time while we were waiting for the sun to do its eclipse thing. forward to today, when Lily wore it for the first time!

Ok, so October has flown by ... and suddenly it's a) November, b) Daylight Savings, and c) Lily's already a month old (and I'm posting this late 😬)
