We've got a new addition

 Since my last post, Alice was born.

Hi, I'm here!
She was due December 3, and I had a C-section scheduled December 2.  She came November 23.  She was 9 lbs 1 oz and 21 inches.

Cuddling with Mommy.
Margaret checks out the new addition.
 Margaret has been a good big sister and likes to help... when she feels like it.

Hanging out on the lovely blanket from Nan.
Alice had her 4 month check up on Wednesday and weighed 16 lbs and was 25".  I can't believe she's only four months old, it seems like she's been here longer than that.  She's a sweet kid and pretty easy, which is good.  She loves Margaret and watches her like a hawk.

I can still get in a little spinning and knitting time, although there isn't much to show for it, yet.  This is some BFL top I spun with a short woolen draw.  Almost two hundred yards.  It is a bit warmer and less grey in color than it photographs.  It's not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with it.  I loved spinning it, it was so silky.  Right now I have a lovely Polwarth on the wheel, colorway Hoarfrost.  I'm trying a worsted draft and hoping it will be about a heavy fingering weight when plied.

Oh, I did sew a dress for the Waldorf doll I made Margaret.  I'm pretty impressed with myself since it is not my forte.  I am planning on getting back to blogging a bit more often, so I'll post a picture next time.  And more recent photos of the girls.

Oh, you and yours have been on my mind and in my heart this week. So glad to hear that all is well. We need to get together soon so I can cuddle both girls!
