Speaking of which, we celebrated the arrival of our third child last month (almost two weeks late, little stinker!). Clara came in to the world on June 9, weighing in at 7lbs, 5 ounces.
She has been welcomed home with more toddler kisses and hugs than we could have ever imagined (not to mention the occasional eye-poke or dropped toy on head, it comes with the territory I suppose!). The best news yet? Turns out she loves handknits (for now, at least!):
When Clara was about a week and a half old, we packed up the minivan and headed for the East Coast. It was a long trek with three little ones, but a week in Maine was both a relaxing and adventurous trip.
Clara is now 7 weeks old, and maternity leave is over halfway over. So for now, I'm relishing these moments- soaking up memories and enjoying a season of sweet cuddles with minimal outside distractions.
And- oh, yes- there has been knitting!
