A week in parenthood

Well, our first week home with our baby and it's been lovely. As expected, knitting close to zero, though I did finish one half of a pair of fair isle wrist warmers, half was knitted in labour and the other half during rafaela's nap the other day. So, as threatened, this post is largely pictures of Rafaela and us.... we're really thrilled (and tired).


Her daddy is thrilled to bits with her, and she has his lovely hands and long (knitting) fingers too!


It seems knitting and breast feeding are mutually exclusive, trust me I've tried, though I can manage to read blogs while Rafaela naps, sucks and blows bubbles at my breasts.

but she does lots of this too... so i managed to make a lovely changing bag which i will blog sometime.

I'll leave you with this weeks favourite picture which captures perfectly her "mummy....where's my hand??" look
