Daniel

At 1:24 on June 19, my sister gave birth to this precious baby boy.

Daniel.

God is my judge. God alone.

I’ve never seen such a perfect face.

Over the past many months, I’ve been sporadically working on a baby blanket for this little guy. I didn’t know his sex, his name, anything about him except that he was slowly growing into a full-sized little human being. You got to see a sneak peak of it when I shared my new-to-me dresser a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately, it’s not done yet. All the squares (42!) are finished and sewn together, but I have about 100 ends to work in yet. Unfortunately, the worst part of this? Mom, Dad, and Baby live in a whole ‘nother province, too far to drive, expensive to fly. With baptism plans in the works, I likely won’t be able to hand deliver this blanket until August. Obviously, that gives me a few more days to work on it. But, it will feel like years until I get to snuggle the brand new baby myself.

Congratulations B and JW! You guys are going to be a pretty awesome Mom and Dad.

And, I can’t forget the thrilled grandparents… D and Mom, I still think you should be Opa and Oma…

  1. Congrats… to you and to the new parents!! So exciting…. and goes so fast! It's hard to believe Halle is almost 11 months… and creeping ever so closely towards her first birthday. I hope you get to spend time with him when he Halle's age, so much stuff to explore – so fun!

  2. I reeeaaally hope I will get to! It's going to be tough though. They're both doing their Ph.Ds right now and, when they're done, could move who knows where – even further away! I have my fingers crossed for back to Ontario!
