All three of Zoe's previous babies arrived early, so as she approached the 40-week mark, she was understandably QUITE ready for Tessa to arrive.
A week ago, I sent her this picture, mostly to make her laugh, but also because, having had a 11-days-past-the-due-date, 9.5 pound baby myself, I wholeheartedly sympathized.
Two days later, Baby Aram arrived.
That's right, "Tessa" was a BOY.
In his first introductions to the world via Facebook, he was clad head-to-toe in pink. What funny stories he will have as he grows older! And what great pictures for his wedding reception (if they're still doing that sort of thing when this next generation is getting married)!
Immediately, I thought of that very girly, pink-and-purple, flowery blanket I had crocheted.
"Well, that will not do," I thought to myself, and the following day (which very conveniently happened to be a Saturday), I took a little trip to the craft aisle.
Welcome to the world, Aram Daniel! What an entrance!
