The little lady was born 1 day past her due date. Daddy spent all day Christmas day begging me to go into labor. He thought it would be fantastic to get to have her on Christmas. I was really trying for Christmas Eve, but it turns out that you can’t force this sort of thing (unless you go get drugs at the hospital…and from what I hear those things are just miserable).
But after impatient days of waiting, we finally got to see our little bundle of love! 40 weeks is a long freakin’ time to have to wait to see your baby. Just so you know.
And brother was SO excited to get to come see his baby:
During the days of inpatient waiting before she was born, I started another crochet project. I only got about half way done before I had her, and having two hands free for anything more than a few minutes to get food on the table is sort of a lost concept around here. So here is the link to the pattern I started. And I am LOVING how it’s turning out. Pretty easy too! I am using grey as the basic color as well, but for the contrasts I picked Rose, Pink, Teal, and Light Blue. I am crazy excited for when it will fit her next fall!
And that’s it for now! Hopefully things settle in soon and I will be able to finish this project, and maybe a few more. For now, I must get back to newborn snuggles, and possibly grab a hand full of food to consume.
