I'm an Aunt for the 3rd time. Hurrah!

Baby Ely Jonas was born today at 10:47 weighing 7lbs and 14ozs. He was 21 inches long and such a cutie. Of course, his knitter aunt has already been working hard to get ready for the day (partly why no blogging) and designed and knit a blanket.

You can't tell from the picture, but every other block is a different textured pattern. It came out fabulous and looks amazing if I do say so myself. It's made out of Kraemer Yarns Little Pebbles and is incredible soft. After sewing in a million ends (ugghh!) I had a little bit of time last night to whip up a cute baby hat for him.
Just a simple baby hat with an i-cord knot at the top.
Not to be left out, I finally finished Lucas' new hat, which he loves! Yeah. I forgot to take a picture of him.
It's the turtle hat from Last minute knitted gifts. It is looks fabulous on him. I'll have to get a picture one of these days. He wore it to the hospital to see his new brother.
I was in a homemaker mood this weekend and made homemade beef noodle soup.
And, for my sister-in-law's last meal, a red velvet cheesecake. Huge crack in the middle, but it got covered with Cream Cheese icing so you couldn't tell. Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a picture before we commenced eating. :-) Super Yummy as well.
