Thank you, everyone, for your congratulations and best wishes. We’re doing well here — tired, but coping, and with lots of wonderful moments to reward us for surviving. I really wish I could thank you all individually for your comments, but at the moment I’m barely managing to shower, much less answer email!

I’m also not knitting, perhaps unsurprisingly. I do hope to get some time soon to finish what I was working on before baby came — since it’s quite small, and if he fits it now, he’ll be grown out of it soon enough. If I do, I’ll be sure to post a picture.

In the meantime, here’s a picture of him all dressed up in his fancy Koigu cardigan and pumpkin hat:


5 days old, and already the centre of attention!

So cute! You look so pale though. Hope you’re not completely exhausted.

So cute! He looks like he’s pondering.

Awwwwwwww he sure looks cute in his little Koigu sweater and pumpkin hat. What a perfect fit :) You look like such a proud mother and baby looks very content in your arms. Hope you had a terrific weekend. I personally can’t wait to see him in his chicken hat ;)

It’s been ages. I remember when you started that first blue cotton sweater of yours, back at S’nilda’s. Wow…I’m still knitting, but you’re MUCH more prolific.

Congratulations on your sweetie; he’s just beautiful. He looks very thoughtful in that picture of him getting dressed. He is a thinking woman’s baby, clearly. :)
