As it ends up, the baby was simply waiting for me to post his aran sweater. Not three hours after posting my blog entry last Thursday night, I realized that things were moving. And at 4:28pm on Friday afternoon, after a blessedly uncomplicated labor and delivery, this little guy came into the world:
Daniel Soren, 8 lbs, 1 oz, 20" long
We are home resting now, marveling at little cheeks and lips...
and savoring every stretch and yawn.
By far my best knitting project to date.
