I got to hold a new baby on Wednesday! So new that he’s not even a month old. He came all the way from Pennsylvania just to see me! (and maybe his grandparents, aunties, uncles, great-grandparents….)
His baby norski sweater wasn’t finished in time to give to him in person (I’m making the 9 month size, anyway), so I knit up some matching booties so that he has handknits in the meantime.
I don’t think we managed to take a single picture while we visited him–we were too busy looking at the funny faces he made. Suffice it to say that he’s adorable and both he and the new mom are doing well.
