We're into multiples lately. The Kiddo likes to have us guide her finger to each of the objects on a book page as we enumerate them. And I think she's catching on, because recently she's started pretending to count, pointing to things and saying, "Dewey, dewey, dewey..."
I think "dewey" is Toddler for "two, three."
Then yesterday when we were waiting in line at the post office, Kiddo discovered a wall of post office boxes. Since she loves keys, she was in heaven with so many keyholes to try. Come time to leave, I had trouble prying her away and resorted to bribery to force our exit ($0.83 = one helium-filled balloon = pure joy). The kid has more patience than I do when it comes to waiting for our package to be found.
I'm embroidering in multiples as well. These are some dishtowels finished while we were away. I did everything in my power to avoid using an embroidery hoop (I've told you before how much I dislike using a hoop) but discovered that freezer paper and stabilizing paper ironed to the backside of the linen weren't good alternatives; I didn't like how they pulled the stitches when I removed the papers.
It's easy to tell which towels should be used for drying the dishes when they have pictures of the dishes themselves on them, right?
But the multiples didn't stop with the dishtowels. More multiples tomorrow.
