Grandma lets my big brother Moo write on her blog now and again & she said at the grand old age of 2 months I could do my first guest post … obviously she will be doing the typing I’ll be just laying here looking adorable 🙂 Sooooo what does a babe have to post about WELL …
Lets talk sleep
Daddy has been studying for y e a r s, he’s done lots of procedures, work experience in Africa for a month and just lately been doing 3 months experience at a prison !! and now guess what ??
He tells me if there is something I really, really want to do when I grow up and that if I work hard I can do it ~ isn’t that cool
30/5/2018 – 16.00hrs 2nd Born rang to inform us Mum To Be’s waters had broken so could I have Moo overnight ~ I hadn’t realised it was half term ~ so cue a garbled message to work that I wouldn’t be in tomorrow
31/5/2018 – 16.00hrs Still no baby
At 23.25hrs babe was born ~ a 7lb 10oz boy named Theo-Fox unfortunately not all went quite to plan, little man is in SCBU ~ Special Care Baby Unit, the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and he possibly has an infection as his respirations are quite rapid so they are going to keep a close eye on him for the next few days before he comes home. So get well soon little man we are waiting patiently for you
So a new member of the next generation of the ‘Von Trap Parry’ family has arrived Happy Days 🙂
I have been holding out on you all, I’ve been knitting away on a couple of mini projects and I haven’t shared, anyhoo here’s what I’ve been up to
To ring the changes I deviated from socks
Soooooo the reason I’ve been knitting for a small person ?? …….. I’M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA AGAIN. Baby aka ‘Podge’ should be making an entrance in the early summer, something tells me life is going to get a whole lot busier & exciting 🙂
A couple of months ago now I was asked if I could knit a shawl for a work colleague who is expecting, “Dear Friend” paid for the 4 ply yarn and I donated my time, the first attempt was too fussy, the second not fussy enough, hence why it’s called the 3 Bears Shawl, the thing to remember about knitting a shawl is ….DON’T DO IT WHEN TIRED
All in all it took me 4 weeks, sometimes knitting for only for 10 minutes at a time, and at other times for up to 6 hours a day, each and every day I panicked in case “Pregnant Lady” went into labour, but bless I didn’t realise she had gone onto maternity leave early so I had an extra month to create her pressie.
