Oh Lawdy!

Really, I haven't posted in two months?!? So sorry 'bout that. I've been having so much fun with Raverly and the baby bird and the girls and what-not I just haven't been a productive blogger at all. See, now you all know how well I keep a diary. Not well at all.

OK, on to pictures.....

a quick history of a growing bird:
(we won't know the sex until after it's first molt but we're all guessing it's a boy)
When the baby was only about 3 weeks old he got sick. Very, very sick. Like thought he was already dead when I found him lying on the floor of the nest and was cold to the touch. He had crop stasis which is where the crop (neck buldge that holds food) got too full and wouldn't empty properly. This of course meant I had to hand feed him from here on out plus give him 3 med's a day for a few weeks and weigh him every day to make sure he was growing properly. Yeah, fun. But thanks to some great vets and a lot of TLC I'm happy to say he's as good as new! Better in fact, because when he was new he was sickly.

The red you see there is brusing.

finding yet another use for the mail scale

all the med's

feeding time

being a ham for the camera as always

Starting to get feathers and learning balance

learning to get around

trying solid food

Trying popcorn for the first time. Finds it very acceptable.

Now he looks just like a real bird and he's learned to fly and fend for himself around the food bowl with all the other birdy's. Life is good.

Onto the knitting finally...

I had finished one of these forever ago but knit it all wrong so I frogged it and re-knit the pair. They have toes out of a different yarn because I ran out of the Knit-Picks parade.

Made mom some yoga socks for her birthday

sweater was coming along until I started a million other projects. I am just now picking it up again.

Threw a totable project on the needles but haven't done too much with it.

I also made a birthday girl a requested present but I can't post a picture yet. Today is her birthday so she'll see it soon and then I can share :-)

Last but not least, I got honorable mention again for the Knitty 2009 Calendar contest! Apparently my picture's so naughty that it will only show up if you're logged in to Flickr and even then you have to click agree to view it. I wasn't going for anything that would offend, but it's always nice to be considered too racy for the general public ;-)

Good Lord. It's a good thing you knew your birdy was going to be a LOT more handsome when he grew feathers. Glad to see you both made it!

That photo scandal is hilarious! You risque woman, you. Probably the most interesting shot of a clap I've seen (not a huge fan of them).
