It’s hard to remember a year ago, I would prop up your little head in my hand to burp you after a feeding. Your little head wobbled around so much. I promise I wasn’t choking you.
Here you are in a picture I took in the middle of the night. This was our first evening together. You were just wonderful. You made the cutest little piggy sound during feedings. You also pressed up against me so intensely when you were nursing that your nose was always pushed up like a little piggy. It’s all I could do but laugh through every feeding. Ahhh…the memories only mothers have and share with the world….
I think I knit more things for you than any of the other kids combined. Your coming home from the hospital outfit here is probably one of my favorite finished projects of all time. You were just born at the right time because I didn’t know how to knit when Silje and David were born, and Elias got all of my learning-to-knit pieces with lots of character. So I guess you are spoiled that way.
