My Baby is here, Christmas Preparations, and Reading On

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I had my baby boy on November 30th, 2022. We have named him Evan. It has been a busy few weeks with him and adjusting to his schedule. I have been so busy with feedings lately and we haven't been sleeping well because he wakes up very often and prefers to snuggle with us. I am up every 2-3 hours during the night with him at this point. He is so adorable and we love him so much. 

Photo below is of Evan and I at the hospital before we left to go home for the first time with him. Very exciting time and there was a really nice tree in the lobby to take a photo in front of. 

Millie is getting used to him being around. She sniffs his head and sometimes goes up to him. But she runs away when he starts crying.

My Arches baby blanket is coming along and I have knitted more of it.  The pattern is by LJM Designs and I found it on Ravelry. I noticed some issues in the knitting last week so I frogged some of it. It is a nice pattern so far but I have to keep track of the row I am on because it is a 16 row repeat and each even row is different. I hope to finish this blanket for Evan early in the New Year to use during the Winter. I am still reading Book Lovers by Emily Henry. In the past few days I have been reading more while Evan naps and during feedings. I would like to finish reading it before the New Year. 

We are in the middle of a winter storm in Toronto and it has began to snow. Unfortunately with this storm and some illnesses in my family, we had to postpone our Christmas Eve plans because it will be pretty bad out there with a lot of snow and slippery roads. Hopefully next week no more sicknesses and the roads are clear we can plan for a day to do our gift exchange and dinner. It has really felt like such a different Christmas this year and has flown by. I have been getting ready for Christmas this week. Really up to this point I haven't done a lot of decorating. I have been ordering a lot of gifts this year because I am not going out with Evan and still healing and can't drive at this point. I am doing well with healing from a c section and feeling less pain lately. 

I have put up a little tree this year in the corner by the window that is usually in our office area. It works this year because last year Millie climbed it a lot and we just wanted something easy this year as we had Evan and knew we didn't need any extra stress. She has knocked this one down a few times already.
