So happy to be able to post the hat in action! After a quick and relatively painless labor and delivery (wow, aren't epidurals the best invention ever?) baby Nico joined our family. I love him to pieces, right down to his baby Alfred Hitchcock profile. He has easily blended into our family and I find myself wondering how we were ever without him.
Ben is a fabulous big brother, singing to Nico when he cries and and rubbing his tiny arm and saying "It's ok, I won't let anyone hurt you.". He's not so happy about having to share my attention, but we're working through it.
I'm feeling good, happy to be almost recovered and ready to "get back to normal", whatever that means. I hope it means some sock knitting!
