She also found her nostril, which is hysterical. She sticks her finger up her nose and just looks intently at my mom, who howls with laughter. She never smiles, just looks. When my mom stops laughing she pulls her finger out of her nose and then sticks it back in to make my mom laugh more. When she saw how funny that was she thought sticking her finger in her eye would be equally funny. It wasn't.

Sorry about the photos, all. I will get them reposted as soon as I can!
Okay, here is a tutorial I promised my Rav-friend Hali.
3-Stitch the loop side of the velcro to the front of the diaper cover about 1" from the top. I use loop fabric from verybaby.com, it does loosen up on the edges a bit, so I zigzag them.
5-Begin binding the body of the diaper cover. Start at one side of the back, where you want the elastic to begin and bind to the same point on the other side of the back, where you want the elastic to end.
6-Thread a 4 1/2" piece of elastic through the binding, securing both ends.
7-Bind around the tab to the end of the gusset. Leave a small space in the stitching and continue binding the leg opening, ending at the other end of the gusset.
8-Thread a 4 1/2" piece of elastic through the binding on the leg opening from one end of the gusset to the other, using the space in stitching to pull the elastic through to the far end. Secure both ends and close up the space in the stitching, after making sure elastic is completely inside.
9-Continue binding around the front of the cover, repeat the process with the other leg opening and elastic. Finish binding body of cover.
10-Attach velcro to tabs, and you are done!!

I guess I should finish my 100 things. But before I do, here is a shoutout to the only two people who ever leave comments on my blog.
Hi Mary, I miss you and Audrey is darling.
Hi Marietta! Thanks for the comments!
So, here we go
84. Currently, I do not miss being a business owner.
85. This is possibly because DH is and his is going crappers at the mo'
86. I would like to own a Dooney and Bourke bag.
87. I also want some Jimmy Choos.
88. I am an official designer for an existing bridal/eveningwear line.
89. I work best under stress.
90. I need deadlines to get things done.
91. My daughter's room is nicer and bigger than my own.
92. I dye yarn.
93. I recently learned to spin.
94. I am of average height, but people always think I am short.

98. But I buy the groceries for both households.

100. I am very happy.
Okay, now on to other things.
I knit Lilly the cutest pair of woolly hot pants. Okay, they weren't really meant to be hot pants, I just haven't added the cuff to the bottom yet. They are to go over her diaper in the summer time, because wool breathes and PUL (her diaper covers) don't. I really need to get it in gear and post some pics of the stuff I have made.
Lilly is starting to walk. But she has been starting to walk for about 3 weeks now. She just won't do it. She thinks it is great fun to walk between me and someone else over and over and over again, but she won't walk to get where she wants to go. She is very wobbly and it is hysterical to watch, but I wish she would figure it out for real.
She doesn't eat like she should, big surprise, that may be a contributing factor to her tininess. Haha. The other day she ate strawberries and edamame for lunch. What baby does that? Oh, and she loves smoked sharp cheddar and brie. Little weirdo. She wouldn't eat her apples and cereal yesterday morning, but when I opened the cooler to get the milk delivery, she saw the big chunk of cheese I ordered, took it and immediately started chewing on it, although it was still in the wrapper. So, I opened it and cut of a chunk for her and she ate it. Good think she got over the lactose sensitivitity she had as an infant. Cause she loves her some milk and ice cream, as well.
I love that she is not remotely afraid of her dogs. They are big and sometimes they knock her over and make her mad, but she has no fear of them. She will lay on them, feed them, ride them, let them lick her. She just loves them, gets all excited when DH lets them in the house.
Oh, here is a funny. I have been thinking that maybe she doesn't really understand sometimes when I tell her something, most particularly when I tell her not to do something. Well, I have decided she selectively understands me. If I say "give your doggie loves" she hugs the dog. If I say "don't touch my computer" she gives me this blank stare. Like she has no idea what I am talking about. HA! She knows, she is just stubborn. Or determined, as my mom likes to say. Yes, she is.
