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?
We live in the country and have a little zoo: Three indoor cats (Audrey, Edgar, and Orange), too many outdoor cats, and our little parrot lovebird named Duncan. Our daughter, Sylvia, was born in October 2008; our second daughter, Veda, was born in January 2010; and our third daughter, Guinevere "Evvie," was born November 2011.
