Welcome Amelia!

Here she is! Amelia Rose, born May 26th at 9:18am. 7 lbs 4oz, about 21 inches long.


After a lovely day of walking in the fields, doing yoga, and cooking dinner with friends, my water broke at 3am, 3 days past my due date. Amelia was born 6 hours later!
We went to the hospital at 4:30, and I was only 1cm dilated. By 8:30 I was ready to push! Hard and fast, no drugs, no interventions, no complications, no tearing! I gave birth kneeling on my yoga mat. Hubs and the midwife were awesome!
She got 10/10 on her Apgar test, and we spent the next 48 hours getting to know each other and learning to breastfeed in the hospital. German Healthcare FTW!

I came across your blog several years ago, and I am back for a visit. Recently I was at a zen monastery and my mind linked that to your monk hat pattern (the first pattern that I've ever followed. I'm more of a free-form knitter).

I am also an artist and love cooking. I have a food blog and a blog for my art. I completely agree about connecting with quality people via that magical red thread. I am out searching for my pack.

I am here to say hello and to check out your latest creations. I dont expect a reply, I imagine you are sleep deprived. I wanted to let you know that your blog touches more people than you know.

take care!
