Oh, Joy! Oh Happy Day! It’s a Boy!

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Someone dear to me has longed for a baby for over a decade, perhaps two decades. She is a tiny person, not all of 5 feet tall. She had a 42nd birthday yesterday.

My mom is taller than this person and Mom’s babies were both significantly under seven pounds. Mom was not comfortable at all. I think the discomfort of the ninth month is nature’s way of making a woman look forward to labor followed by sleepless nights. They just want that child in their arms!

I can not tell you the joy in my heart for this family. It is so wonderful when things happen like this. We can not place an order for it, we are not in charge of how it goes. These folks have a lucky star over them today.

I am rejoicing in the news, I’m almost giddy.

Holidays are so intense. I had a holiday party with the knitting guild tonight and one is tomorrow night with the dance troupe. We have a funeral scheduled tomorrow afternoon (they are twice as sad in December). However, today is 100% joy.

Today’s photo is the hat I knit for the new child. It is from the Ann Norling Fruit Cap pattern (a brilliant design which has 3 options and many sizes on 2 sides of one sheet of paper). I used a handpainted pima cotton from Araucania for the blue and Tahki Cotton Classic for the green leaves. I find that moms like this hat so much they will ask for a replacement when the child outgrows the first one. The perfect gift!
