tiny tuna.


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 :)

Day 5

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!
