Coming Home Cardigan

Thanks for the Emmett love! He's unbelievable and we are so unbelievably lucky. We get almost no sleep, feeding has been harder to learn than I'd expected and recovering from both an episiotomy and a c-section is challenging but I'd do it all over again in a nonsecond. In fact, I think I was already talking about having another one before I'd even reached the recovery room. He's so freaking cute I think we owe it to the world.  :)

I know I said I wasn't going to post photos of him but I can't resist! 

Coming home from the hospital was not the pleasant, sunny experience that I expected. By the time we did leave Saturday night it was after ten and I was emotionally drained and exhausted and couldn't bother changing his clothes so he went home in a cute little sleeper. I did try the matching hat on him but it didn't fit his little noggin since it had been mishapen by the ventouse and forceps. Thankfully, the pumpkin hat did fit so he had something homemade to come home in.

He had his first visitors the other day so I made sure he was wearing the cardigan.

I never ever thought I could, instantly and with all my heart, love something that I didn't pick if that makes any sense at all.  He was given to me - made by us - and I am so lucky!

He's Here!

Emmett on Daddy

Actually he's been here for a few days but, as you'd suspect, there's not been a lot of time for sleeping, let alone posting!  He arrived at 2:37 am on October 29th and weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces. 

Lttle Emmett is, without a doubt, the best thing I've ever made.  We already can't imagine our life without him or that there ever was a life without him.  

I had started a much longer post but just can't find the time to finish it. Some day.  Maybe.  :)
