Late birth-day cake

While we wait for the blueberry cake to cool…  (The springform pan was lined with parchment. )

Meantime, here’s Parker at three weeks, ie around his due date of 1/11/11. Clearly he needs more handknit socks and hats in every colorway you could imagine.

And I’m suddenly remembering Dr. M, our family’s ENT, looking at my then-baby younger son, who, as soon as he could manage it, always took his socks off and put them on his hands instead; the good doctor noted with bemusement, “He’s going to have a hard time walking on those when he gets older.”

It’s okay, John (not shown) got to meet and hold his new nephew last Sunday and I don’t think his feet have touched the ground since.

Of course he needs lots more knits! Oh, and don’t forget to get some cotton blends for his summer wardrobe, too. I can already picture a cute little sailor outfit…with hat, of course!

Yeah, babies and handknits… goes together like carrots and peas!

What about the long unfinished smocked sailor suit? Any progress on that? Because he definitely has a look on his face that says, “Grandma, clothe me.”

And for a COMPLETELY off topic comment. See Neil see!!!! THAT is a springform pan! I am using a TUBE pan for the orange chiffon cake. It is NOT a spring-form pan! I do NOT care what your mother called it. If it’s a chiffon or angle food or sponge cake you use a TUBE pan, NOT a spring-form pan!

Thank you for letting me get off my chest. A slight disagreement in the kitchen this afternoon, don’t ya know?

I am pretty sure Parker is singing in that middle picture. A song about hats, most likely.
