Ten is a good number.  I've always liked it.  I wear size ten shoes and size ten clothes (at least I did before my pregnancy).  Ten is good.  Ten is prefect, right.

This is my newest ten.

Born on July 16, he weighed 10 pounds.  Ten is a good number.

On the blog I will just call him by his first initial (it is L), as I do with D.

He is a very laid back baby.  I am so thankful for his personality, it is the perfect balance to his sister.  D is loving being a big sister, by the way.  She likes to call him "my baby boy." 

Now nearly three weeks, later I can barely believe how fast the weeks are going by.  I got a few shots of him in the sweater I knit this spring.

It is the Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker.   I used Kint Pick's Cotlin in Celery.  I bought the yarn before I knew  the sex so I went with a nice neutral green. I really enjoyed knitting this baby sweater and hope to make it again.

He is just so gorgeous, I will have to knit him more things.


  1. He is a pretty handsome baby! He has your eyes.

    1. Both of my kids have my eyes. I am so, so happy about this. My eyes are my favorite feature on me and them.

  2. Congratulations. He is beautiful! And I love that sweater pattern.

    1. Thanks. I am pretty sure it is my new go-to pattern for baby presents.
