The “Better Late than Never!” Edition – of course I had to do this when I realized it was Wednesday, but couldn’t blog it until now.
~From small things
~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.
So, on Tuesday (you know, While I Waited) I had an appointment to check amniotic fluid levels – turned out that the tech could only find one pocket of fluid to check, and that level was low enough to send me over to the hospital that afternoon. In a manner that was strikingly similar to the situation with Lorelai, they broke my water around 8, and by 10-ish things were really progressing enough that there was no time for the epidural I wanted, and Ta-DAH! 10:36pm, the lil’nutmeg Nathaniel Thomas was here! . It is still so very surreal – I can’t believe I have had another baby. I can’t believe we’re already back home. I can’t believe how similar this one is to Lorelai – he’s slightly smaller than she was (7.9lbs, 19.6 inches), but the head full of hair really seals the deal I think.
It seems a bit crazier to be home this time around – Jackson is constantly on guard / edge, and Lorelai is still full of endless energy. She’s getting to indulge in extra tv time this week that’s for sure. But all is well so far – we could all use more sleep, but we’re healthy and happy, so we just take one thing at a time.
Back to the yarn along-ing. I did bring hexipuffs to my ultrasound appointment, but I didn’t work on them because I thought for sure I would drop the little balls of yarn and they would roll away. Instead I worked on a sock, but that wasn’t the greatest idea either – I realized that I would have to try on the sock at some point to know where to decrease for the toe and I couldn’t exactly reach my toes then. Oh well, live and learn.
