A wee little one to knit for
I think It’s about time I come clean about the recipient of my latest knitting endeavors….
Yup, It’s true. Mark and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting! This little cable knit will clothe our little Joesting. Come April, our world will most surely be turned upside down, and my knitting queue will likely be filled with tiny sweaters and hats.
I’ve literally been around babies and kids my entire life. Diapers, car seats, sleep schedules, old news, but I can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that we will be parents. Does it ever seem real? I keep asking new parents I know, when it “kicks in”. This impending parenthood.
So as I approach my 20th week of pregnancy ( almost half way! whoohoo!)I am feeling sooo much better, after spending the first trimester feeling pretty terrible, and being a slug on the couch. I am also finally brave enough to let Mark take a picture of me and my growing midsection. I’d say he was just as brave as me. You know that I am not an easy subject to take a picture of. ehem.
To answer the questions: Yes, there is just one in there ( I’m an identical twin, so of course that was the biggest question I needed to ask). No, we are not going to find out the gender until the big day arrives. I love surprises, and happen to love gender neutral colors, so it’s a win win :).
I feel so thankful already for all the friends and family who already have shown so much love and support for this tiny little baby that we haven’t even met yet. We are beyond blessed. Now if only I could stop time now and then so I could make all the millions of tiny knitting projects that MUST get done before April. Only kidding ( sort of).
