Hi there, I didn't mean to disappear for a over a week. It's not nice to be a swap hostess and then disappear on people.
Anyway, I've been taking care of Mr. E for two days. He caught the head cold that Grampa and I had and couldn't go to daycare.
He is learning all kinds of new behaviors these days. Yesterday he found a photo of Grampa and I. He brought it to me. Pointed to Grampa and said, "grampa, grampa". Then he started kissing the photo. He made sure the photo was close to him all day long. With Grampa traveling right now, I guess it's cool that he knows who he is.
Like any child he hates to get his nose wiped when he has a cold. Ever since I've had him I always say, "boogie alert, boogie alert" when I need to wipe his nose. Yesterday he had a big, juicy sneeze. When I said boogie alert he toddled over to the desk where the tissue box is and waited for me to get a tissue to wipe his nose. Granted, I could only get one good swipe in before he wiggled away. But one swipe is better than none, especially when he is ready for it.

Also, I've created a blog list of all the participants. Please check your link and make sure I have it correct. I had links for everyone except Denyse. So, Denyse, if you have a link, please send it to me. Be sure to pop in to other swapper's blogs and say hello!
Have you chosen your tote bag pattern yet? I have about half a dozen I want to try. I just don't know which one to choose.
