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.

Contemplating His New 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!

  2. Yep --- that's being a mom, every bit of it.
    Lovin' the shoes!!

  3. he is just too cute! the sweater looks awesome on him. wishing you a healthy and fast recovery - believe me i had the same thing and i know it hurts!

  4. well I'm glad you're showing him to us - he's adorable!! and the first thing I thought when I saw that straight on shot - the middle cardigan one - was that his face looks so much like Matt! I hope you get to feeling better - just thinking about all that makes me a little woozy! I'm glad someone can handle it!

  5. OMG, he looks just like Matt! Handsome little dude. He looks so much older already!

  6. He is absolutely glorious with all that yarn sweater. The perfect combination of colors. Very lucky to have Emmett love. Im glad to see you all. Your eyes are looking so cute.

  8. I for one am glad you're posting pictures. He is just beautiful! Did you know that Emmett is Hebrew for truth?
    I remember coming home with my newborn son -- I was a mess. I cried all the way home because I was sure I wasn't up to taking care of the precious little creature. Hormones! Somehow I managed to keep him safe -- and now he's 22!
