Welcome, Sweet Mae

View More: More: View More: More:
Sarah Mabel Elizabeth was born on Monday via a scheduled c-section.  She weighed 8 lbs 1 oz, and everything went well according to my doctor and nurses.  We are home resting now.  I have so much to share in the coming weeks: the significance of her name (she will go by Mabel, or “Mae”), my reasons for choosing the birth that I did for her, and what that was like for me.

My dear friend Lori visited us at the hospital just a couple of hours after Mabel was born and captured the photos of those early moments that I am sharing here.

I will be laying low for a little while, but hope to be back here very soon.  Thank you for being here, for your prayers and words of encouragment, and for sharing our joy with us.  This little one is the sweetest gift.

Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us!~

I’m still not spending very much time reading, but am more than halfway through A Room with a View now.

I only had about four knitting projects going, so thought I ought to cast on for something else…a little Violet Bonnet in Quince & Co. Tern, the barnacle colorway.  I’ve had this yarn in my stash forever, so it’s good to be putting it to use!
