Nine sets down (in 10 days), 11 more to go...let's just say I'm a very well informed (thanks to NPR and Netflix documentaries) stay-at-home mom with a tell-tale knitters hunch and a nervous twitch in my hands.
One stitch at a time - or as per Gus' favorite book - I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.

Those red bumps (a preview of an almost certain fate for Gus in 12 years or so, since both of his parents had a solid case of acne during their respective teenage years) have spread all over his cheeks (all four of them) down his legs and on his arms. Still our doctor says there is nothing to worry about, simply apply some topical calming cremes and keep it all clean and it will once again give way to that rosy, smooth skin, Momma is so fond of...

There is some uneveness, but he makes it all work for him. I've decided that we have potential as a toddler haircut team and, at the hair-raising amount of $12 a pop, we will pursue future trims, to help trim our budget. We'll get better...and Gus could care less...as he did about my attempt to snap a good picture of a bad haircut.
