Secret Socks Finished

Elijah is now gone for 2 days. Man, I never thought it would be this quiet in the house, I'll still tiptoe around thinking the little Guy might be sleeping, or I'll wake up at night wondering why he's not hungry and screaming.... But he's with his Daddy visiting his Grandparents, so I don't have any worries. And just like a good husband he called me yesterday to report any and each detail of the long trip, and seems like Elijah is doing better than his Dad, he was barely impressed by the plane ride, and even less by the time warp one is hit with when all the sudden the day starts 7 hours later. Elijah also laughs and smiles at everyone, even at the dog, and he's just sometimes getting quiet and then he asks:" Mama... mama?"
I am holding up pretty well, considering. It's just so darn quiet in the house, I keep sneaking around thinking Baby sleeps, and each night so far I woke up at around 5 am wondering why he's not waking up for bottle and early morning cuddle. (I said that twice, didn't I?)
Pffft, only 12 more days. I can handle that, or?

One thing this means though is that I get a lot of knitting time extra. The red Secret Socks are for Becke, my husbands Sister. She hasn't been getting a lot of homemade things yet, and this is just to spoil her feet a bit. (And the pictures are really bad, but the good fancy camera went with over the big waters to document Elijahs adventures...)
After all, I have no choice, I got to keep busy, right? So I'm catching up on some I.O.U.'s, some extra socks and maybe I get my Heart Cardi done. And there of course is Ravelry, I can organize my groups and browse the forums, catch up on some blog reading and, well, miss by Baby.

Those are absolutely stunning! Try to enjoy the quite time and do the things you want to do, even though I know it's easier said than done.

Beautiful socks. Hang in there. Don't be surprised if the baby tries to punish you by refusing to look at you at first when they come home, it's quite normal and very temporary.
