Introducing Baby Bliss!


G and I are very pleased to announce the birth of our little bunny, Lila (like lilac, the flower) Somerset (the region in England where G is from) on April 16th. She's only a day old in this photo, but I think she looks a lot like G! Then again, look how she's a ham for the camera, so maybe that's how she takes after her mom (work that bunny hat!). I have no idea why one eye is a little more closed than the other in this photo, both her eyes are the exact same size. Maybe it's a little wink at the camera.

And here she is coming home from the hospital:


I pretty much put her in that bunny hat every chance I get. Newborns are cute, but newborns in bunny hats make entire elevators of jaded hospital staff smile their biggest smiles.

My 2nd son looks exactly like my husband. I joke that when he looks at dad it's like he's looking in a "future mirror". Anyway, many congratulations to you and your sweet family! I can't wait to see all the cute baby knitting to come.

Congratulations! She's lovely! I hope it is all going well with you -- the first days and weeks of my first baby's life were tough on me, but everyone's experience is better.

Thanks for naming her after me! ;) You gave her my (real) name, right down to the spelling. Love it. I didn't know any other Lilas growing up, but now I have heard about a few little girls with the name.

Wishing you so many good things for you and your little sweetheart! There is nothing to compare with the joy a child will bring you. (Hint: they sleep a lot the first few months, so you can still get some knitting done. But after that, well, it's a little tough :)
