The One Where I Welcome...

Riley...my new niece!

I know it isn't a great photo - the lighting in my brother's house was not ideal in the late afternoon/evening and I didn't want to continually flash the little girl in the face. But here is Little R - born Friday, January 18, 2008. She was 7 lbs 4 oz, but at two days old she was down to 6 lbs 14 oz. They even got to go home after just two days - despite the c-section.

Newborns are so tiny! I haven't seen any in a couple years, so you know, I forgot just how tiny they are. And I'd forgotten how big my brother is (I still think of him as a little kid...obviously he's not anymore.. he's a dad!). Crazy.

I think my knitting malaise could be lifting soon.... According to my husband, who just discovered a huge portion of The Stash, I'd better get to work and knit something ASAP!

Congratulations on your new neice! Newborns are very tiny, but they grow fast.

That's still pretty big! Congratulations on your niece!

And uh oh. Pressure to reduce stash. So what will you knit?
