This is a very fast post to let you all know that James William was born on July 24 @ 1758hr, weighing 8lbs 8oz and measuring 55cm. The labour and delivery were excellent – I laboured with him for 9.5 hours and only had 28 minutes of active pushing. Thankfully, the damage was very minimal :)
I knit this little toque for him back in February but wanted to wait to show it off till he arrived.
Pattern: Cable Baby by Pamela W Allen
Yarn: Shibui Staccato Sock in ‘60’s Kitchen’
Needles: 3mm DPNs
We are all doing really well at Day 5. He’s slept for about 3.5-4 hours each night thus far and breastfeeding has been going well – typical hiccups but the midwives are so on top of everything, it’s hard to blink before it’s ‘fixed’. Happy July!
Congratulations to you both he's adorable!!Glad everything is going well and that delivery was good too, he was a good sized little lad ;)
