Have you wondered where I disappeared to? I?ve been hiding out, but with good reason this time? My knitting time has been consumed by a new necessity:
Our Daughter Andromeda Lynn - ?Romy? was born Dec 30, 2011 ? at 6:23, weighing in at 7 lbs 13 oz.
Here we are at around 3 hours after her birth? the first time I got to hold her in my arms. We had a bit of a challenging first meeting, and unfortunately we both needed a little help immediately after the delivery, so we didn?t really get to hang out and get acquainted for a few hours. I?ll likely tell the whole birth story at some point when I have a bit more time to really write it out properly.
Romy, her Daddy and I are starting to get settled in now? I can?t believe that she will be 3 weeks old tomorrow! We had some troubles with breastfeeding (which I hear now is a pretty common occurrence) but we are starting to move through them and things are gradually getting better with time. I still haven?t managed to do much knitting, but I have really high hopes today that I might get to do a few rows on the socks I started the morning that we went to the hospital for labor to be induced. I had knit about 3 inches worth of sock before the contractions got to be too intense to knit through :)
Welcome to the world little girly? oh all of the wonderful things Mommy wants to teach you and show you?
