Hello World

Hello World

Sorry to have gone so long between posts.  As you may have guessed, there have been big changes at our house over the last two weeks.  Please meet our new baby girl, Veronica Marie.

Veronica was born Saturday, November 23rd.  At 9 pounds 4 ounces and 22 inches, she was pretty much born too big for her Puerperium cardigan!
. . . And her carrot cocoon.
Her longies fit pretty well, though.
Mike and I are totally in love with her and with parenthood.  It's been a pretty adventurous 11 days, which is why I haven't had time to post (or knit or cook or do much of anything besides stare at her pretty face), but I think we might be starting to settle into a routine (that will be disrupted as soon as daddy is back to work), so I hope to get back to posting at least weekly.  And to finishing projects -- only 3/4 of a collar to go on Irish Moss!

What Not to Give at a Baby Shower: Useless Gifts You'll Be Better Off Without

My son is now 3, and my daughter is almost 9 months. I have a pretty good idea of gifts that are useful, and those that...aren't. Here are the ones I wouldn't register for or buy for an expecting mother: 1. Onesies: Why are there so many of these on the market? And why does everyone give them to you in mass quantities when you're pregnant? It's awful to squeeze a squirming baby's head into that tiny little neck hole. Babies cry enough already. Don't give them another reason to do so.   Read more >
