Even Better Than Yarn Pictures…

Untitled42 Untitled46

Bob was in shock while we were still in the OR and failed to take any pictures of the baby immediately after birth, so Iris’s first pictures were taken right after the surgery while I was in the recovery room.


She has so much hair, just like her daddy. It’s dark at the roots and turns lighter at the ends- who knows what color it will turn into?

She had a bit of jaundice, so if you’re thinking she looks a little yellow, that’s why. After a couple days on the BiliBlanket, she’s doing fine.

Here’s Iris with her daddy:


Here’s Iris with her Nana:


And very importantly, here’s Iris with her first yarn:


See, I told you I had pictures! Y’all don’t mind if this blog goes from a mostly knitting blog with little bits of kitties to a mostly baby blog with little bits of knitting, right?

Speaking of kitties, they’re to the baby pretty well. Mostly, they ignore her and are more interested in the noises emanating from my breast pump.
