There hasn’t been much in the way of crafting since Madrigal was born (though I was able to knit a few rows yesterday!), but that’s no reason not to update the blog! Maddy and I are doing pretty well now. I’m definitely nowhere near 100%, but I can lift her and carry her (still need to be careful about this, though), and can sit fairly comfortably again, and all that good stuff.
These last couple of weeks, my dear friend Kris arranged for a group of my grad school friends (including herself) to come over and help me out now that my husband is back at work. I am so absurdly grateful for this – I really have no idea how I’d’ve handled things without all of Maddy’s honorary aunties helping us out!
I’ve been using my iPhone and Instagram a lot to take and share some photos of Madrigal, and I thought it’d be nice to share some of them here, too. Here’s Maddy and I in our matching Garter Rib Cardigans:
And here are three generations of us Gegg ladies, featuring Maddy in her stripey baby cap:
Here’s Maddy in the hat that Kathy made for her:
The most exciting development over the last couple days has been my ability to wear Maddy. Here we are with the Beco Gemini carrier:
And in the Sleepy Wrap:
It was thanks to the Sleepy Wrap that I was able to knit those few rows yesterday, which went a long way towards making me feel more like myself again:
Here’s hoping I’ll be able to do some more crafting as Maddy and I get used to hanging out with each other all day during the latter half of my maternity leave. I hope all is well with y’all, dear readers, and that you have a wonderful and happy Winter Solstice!!
