We Did It!

Oh I know I promised knitting photos, and you shall get them soon... but first things first: welcome Elijah! After a very dramatic return to hospital and an emergency C-Shection on July 21st he was delivered at 18:13 PM, at 4 pounds, 15 ounces and 18". Or 2.24 kg, 47 cm. He was born at 36.1 weeks, and had to spend 6 days in Neonatal Care. I was not very well myself, but it was very hard to be separated from Elijah and when we finally got home yesterday evening bliss just took over.... And the 3 hourly feedings. But knitting will not be forgotten.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and wellwishes. I will find time to write everyone soon... I hope.

Congrats!! What a cutie.

Just remember that the first 8 weeks of sleep deprivation are the worst. It too shall pass...

Don't forget to take care of you too. I also had a C-Section and it was hard to get back into the swing of things...again, with the sleep deprivation.

Congratulations (although belated) on your sweet little boy. I have a picture of my daughter that looks almost the same, she will start school in four weeks :-)
As we say in german: that's a project with hands and feet ;-)

Have fun getting to know each other!
