Stitches, Sad and Happy

Yes, I know they're not quilting stitches
but stitches they are .. lots of purls and knitting.

twin hats

It's the best project for picking up and putting down.
For taking back and forth to the NICU.


I whipped up these two little hats for Finn's first girlfriends 
- twins A & E are his roommates in the NICU -

Sweet little things.
Their parents are lovely ... it's been wonderful to find kindred spirits in the same boat.

We've met a few other parents, most have already "graduated" and moved into stage 2 of the NICU.

But tonight my heart and soul are with the family of H.
That is, after I dug it out of my throat ..
it was a hard day in the NICU as I snuggled my lovely Finn
while H's parents ushered in their family one at a time
.. to say good bye..

I don't know if she'll still be there when I visit tomorrow ...

I've watched my little guy jump hurdles, lose a few grams,
gain a few back but all the while thriving ... we are so lucky.

We are so blessed.

Today he is "30 weeks"

This is the hat I whipped up his first days in the NICU .. 
all the others I had knit "while waiting" were much too big ...

Of course I like him best without his hat .. that hair is so darn adorable!

    PS, it's funny that he already looks so much like Axel!!

  3. Your son is so beautiful. I hope he is healthy enough to come home with you very soon. I clicked your link on the Blogging group on Rav, and I'm really enjoying your blog. I'm following you and am looking forward to reading more. :)

  4. I love his name and that he is yours and that he is thriving!!! Please Father keep all of those little ones close and help them all get stronger and able to go home soon.

  5. May Finn continue to thrive.... Our little Gideon Angel passed when he was 2 days old.. His parents were do devastated... So my prayers are with you for Finns continued progress...
