luca is one week old today.
i can hardly believe it. his umbilical stump fell off wednesday evening and while i was thrilled to not have to worry about bumping it or making sure his cloth diaper didn't cover it i was a little sad and overwhelmed at how quickly time passes once baby is on the outside. truthfully i am so happy he is finally here, in my arms, at my breast, and not inside my ribcage. he really is absolutely amazing!
i have a knitting project involving cables in progress that i tried to pick back up yesterday. i have no recollection of where i was in the pattern... and what does "c8f" and "c8b" mean again? hmm, knitting might have to wait another week, or two.
i did finish a sweet little knit romper for the baby quite a while back. it has been sitting in my knitting bag, waiting for perfect buttons. i am considering taking my newborn and toddler boys to the fabric store to buy some. button stitching sounds simple enough and then i would have something fun to share with you here instead of all this new baby/postpartum mama stuff.
before i go i want to thank you for all of your wonderful comments on the arrival of our little luca! i enjoyed reading each sentiment and am so happy to share our family's excitement with you.
thank you, friends!
and lastly, a quick message for my little luca bird ::
