Exciting and Joyous News! (Non-Knitting Related)
Posted on November 6, 2009 - 6:40pm
I guess it is safe now to announce to the universe at large that my brother, Michael, and my sister-in-law, Nancy, are expecting a baby this coming May! I am going to be an aunt! This is a much wanted and planned baby and I am so thrilled for them, and for my mom, who will be a grandmother for the first time.
Nancy has been feeling very sick but I am hopeful that as her first trimester is about over now, she will soon be feeling better and gaining back some of the alarming number of pounds she lost due to morning (or in her case, all day) sickness.
I just can't wait to knit up some baby garments and am already stockpiling the yarn (in gender neutral colors, for the time being). I made one bootie that was a dismal failure (since frogged) so clearly I need more practice in the baby knitting department. I plan to make an heirloom baby blanket and have found the most perfect pattern and yarn - machine washable of course. This will be the first baby blanket I've made and I am very excited!
In the meantime, please think lots of good thoughts for Michael and Nancy and their little one. I love all three of you!
