I realize it has been more than a month since I posted anything, but here's the deal: newborn babies are VERY time consuming in the best possible way, and then my own kind of crazy made me throw in a return to work while applying to grad school at the same time. I still knit a couple of rows at time, and the scarf is only 4 days behind right now (evidence of my return to work, I'm sure)but until I figure out how to knit in my limited sleep, it will kind of take a back burner to everything else... kudos to those other single moms who can handle a newborn, full time work, and grad school at all at once!
In other completely unrelated news, I went to the pediatrician with Sureya today because I was utterly convinced that her congestion was life threatening (limited sleep, people, remember that) and we found out that she weighs 12 lbs 8 ozs as of today-thats up 3lbs3oz since birth and a perfectly acceptable weight for a 7 week old baby. To the unnamed doctor who told me that I wasn't producing enough breastmilk to sustain my baby and would need to supplement with formula-I accept your apology for making me cry for a week straight
Here's Sureya modeling her Maile sweater, before she outgrows it along with the pants! Thank you to my bestie Corinne of Corinne Hill Photography for taking the picture, and Nikki Van De Car for the pattern.
