Power in My Fingers OR Introducing Lincoln Josiah

Lincoln Josiah, my newest nephew, was born this past Sunday morning, the 25th of September 2011.  He was an easy and smooth delivery and my sister was thrilled!  He was a perfect 7lbs 3oz and 19.5" long.

I finished knitting his gift at about midnight, and at about midnight my sister's water broke.  I am really beginning to think I have been given a supernatural knitting gift.  Does God grant such things?  Probably not, but the timing was still impeccable.  Below you can see Lincoln and his two friends:  I made him the dog (though I don't think it is a very good picture of him) and my sister made the darling felt giraffe (remember our Monster Family from last Christmas?).  Despite his appearance in this picture he is overjoyed by the companionship.  Trust me.
And now my sister is part of a family of four.  And I think this suits them very well.  "The Foreman Four" has a nice ring, don't you think?

Congratulations to your sister! It is exciting for all the cousins to have each other to play with. Is the dog McHenry from Susan B. Anderson? It looks like it.

I love that you finished knitting about the time labor began!

Congrats to your entire family!!

At first I wasn't sure I wanted baby to come so early and was rather disgruntled that you had finished your knitting project, but. . . now I am thrilled to not be pregnant!! Oh, and to have the precious baby home too ;) I like the Foreman Four, sounds cool! May have to fit that into my facebook somehow.

Trying to catch up in my "blogging friends world" I am so happy for your new family addition of this little guy! He looks precious and I'm sure his "auntie" will spoil him rotten with knit stuff made from the heart. LOVE McHenry.
