It was a big day in our house this past weekend, our little Bodhi turned 3! I know, I hear we millennials like to over-celebrate the little things, but folks, the littlest turning 3 is big around here. 3 means she dresses herself in the morning (often to hilarious effect). 3 means she can go to swimming lessons with just her and the instructor, no parents in the pool. 3 means if she is thirsty, she just goes and gets herself a cup of water. 3 means this year I will teach her to crack an egg by herself and she can carry her own backpack when we go for a hike. 3 means major independence!
Bodhi has been in knitwear since the day she was born, I brought her home in this colourful Vivid blanket! I thought she would get the fewest knits made just for her, but I was completely wrong. As the littlest she gets the most ‘prototype’ knits, and she has maximum hand-me-downs. Poor Jonesy-in-the-middle ends up with the fewest knits (but I’m working on it)!
When Bodhi was only a few weeks old we took her camping in the Rocky Mountains to photograph Road Trip. She travelled like a champ and I even whipped up a little Prairie Fire for her! Only a few months later she would be 1/2 the inspiration for Max & Bodhi’s Wardrobe.
There is something so lovely about seeing my little ones growing up all wrapped in hand knits! Bodhi is such a wonderful little girl, smart as a whip, quick to laugh, and always with just a hint of sass in everything she does. She has always wanted to keep up with her siblings so she comes to things quickly through sheer force of will. Cheers to you on your big day my baby!
Bodhi is wearing: 1999, Prism, The World’s Simplest Mittens, Flax Light, Bowline, and Precipitation
More knits I have planned for Bobo

Happy Birthday Bodhi! They do grow up fast so enjoy every single second. If you want to celebrate big I say go for it – they’re only 3 once. Such a cutie!
