So I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new niece or nephew….my baby sister (well…she’s a grown adult, but she’ll always be my baby sister) is pregnant with her first child! She lives a good distance from me, so we chat online alot…I’ve never had any children, so I ask her alot of questions. Well…I got the call she was in labor (actually the call came, but I slept through it and didn’t know for 3hrs later, whoops…sorry Ash)… so I called work, made arrangements to be off for a week to be with my sister… and headed to PA to be with my sister.
She had a fast labor… by the time I arrived at the hospital she was 9cm and it was just a matter of time before her little bundle arrived…so we wait…and wait…and wait…hey, where is the baby already?! I want to hold her, like yesterday!!
She has arrived!! Yes, she had a girl!!! Della Rey!! Della is our great grandmother’s name, and my mom’s cousin was also named after her…so cool – I didn’t know that was the name they chose…and I love it!
She is the cutest little, tiniest thing ever! Hardly cried when we were visiting that first few days in the hospital, but after returning home, boy – she’s got lungs! Didn’t realized they didn’t know to sleep at night vs the day….so it made for some really rough sleepless evenings…which I’m sure many mothers can attest to.
Well, I’m in love with her….here are some photos for your viewing pleasure!
What about knitting…
I can say, I did take my knitting with me to PA – and I did knit, but much less than I thought I would – cause it was all about the baby – holding, feeding, changing, hugging, cooing, kissing…. did I say I love that little peanut!
I am working on leg warmers – or dance/yoga socks… they are great for yoga, running in the winter, chilly ballet classes, and overall, great in boots! I’m making some for the shop that carries my knitting (Marigold Salon, Spa & Marketplace in Sharon Center Ohio) .
My sister is also requesting a mini version of them for baby Della – in Mustard yellow, of course….
Well…. back to it! Relaxing on the deck enjoying a lovely Saturday with the hubs, and our “kid”.. Monty… who figured out how to relax in style….
Til then Love…
