So, this has pretty much been my life for the past six weeks or so:
My little girl, Anna Catherine, was born September 5, a full six weeks early. So, actually, this has been my life for the past five weeks or so, because we spent the first week of her life in the NICU.
Everything’s fine, she’s gained two pounds since she’s been home, and she seems perfectly healthy, mostly happy, very insistent on food and attention when she wants them (and she’s gearing up for wanting food soon, as I can hear from the next room).
Suffice it to say I haven’t had a lot of time for crafting these days. I did knit her a tiny hat:
which already doesn’t fit her, but I wanted to have something to remember how small she was when she first came home. I’ve also knit one leg warmer, which actually still fits even though it took me about two weeks to get through it. I’m hoping to have the other one done soon and will show them off as soon as they’re available.
I’m excited to see how and when I learn how to balance everything in this new and exciting life: caring for my little one and my husband, keeping up with work and home responsibilities and fitting in crafting that’s not done for my job. I’ll keep you posted on how it all turns out.
