I have been so excited over the last two months and have found it very difficult to keep a huge secret
but now I can share.
We are absolutely delighted and over the moon to be able to announce that
Rebecca and Antoni are expecting their first baby in April
What a little miracle after everything she has been through
Now 13 weeks, and baby is about the size of a plum. The twelve week scan has passed with every thing OK
Baby was hiding and we only got a wave, but soooooo exciting
I sent them a special photo frame that says 1st scan, 2nd scan and I´m here, to keep the photo safe
We knew two months ago and straight away out came the needles
using yarn I had been storing up in readiness I clicked away knowing they were coming out in the next three weeks and I wanted to give her some goodies made with oceans of love.
So in those three weeks I made, two blankets, cardigan, hats, mittens, bootees, found some pink and blue wrapping paper and was ready,
Rebecca came out first and I couldn´t wait and she was so pleased with every thing
Oohing and Arring over each piece.
Antoni was pleased too, but it´s different for the men isn´t it!
Since then I have been working on a larger, cot size blanket and a hooded towel in 100% cotton.
So I have been busy but just couldn´t say anything, we speak every day to catch up on news and any thoughts or niggles, which is very comforting being so far apart
I am careful to say lets find out about a topic because many years have passed since having my two and with modern technology at your finger tips and different medical opinons, some of it is old hat, although some is also just common sense. Also of course, Rebecca has some special medical needs, but she was given a cardiologist appointment within three weeks, with ultrasound and halter tests arranged, next is an obstetrics appointment, so they are on the ball
Rebecca has a couple of apps, detailing week by week what is happening with baby and also Mum which is quite informative for both of us. Not like me, it was just get on with it back then.
So now you know why the yarn delivery from Deramores was a little bit secret, couldn´t show all the lovely pastels and soft bamboo and cottons without giving the game away.
Already used the cotton for the hooded towel robe, finished the large size blanket and now onto a smaller one idea for car seats or pram.
There is a fair amount of steam coming from them there needles lol
