My grand-daughter McKenna was born Saturday evening, more than 9 weeks early. She weighs 2 lbs. 5 oz. and though very tiny, is doing very well! She came out crying and breathing on her own, and is full of spunk. Of course I fell in love with her the minute I saw her. I am hoping to be able to hold her tomorrow.
The way things happened made for a wild ride, and even though it's not what any of us had planned, it looks like it will all be ok.
I missed out on 2 months of knitting time... I'd better get moving on finishing up that other project, and making a few preemie hats!
McKenna's arrival put a wrench in my plans to go to Sock Summit, and while I'm disappointed, HERE is where I need to be...where I want to be. Kim is going to need a lot of help in the coming weeks. I want to be the one helping her.
I can't believe I'm a grandma!! Squeeee!
