I'm a Great Grandma!

Rylea Lea McDole arrived August 4 and 4:39 AM weighing in at 7 lbs 1 oz and measuring 19 3/4 inches.
Here she is-minutes old- with her daddy. She is so alert and looks at whoever is talking to her. I stood behind Arron and talked to her and she looked towards me. Alas, a few hours after her birth she was transferred to Level II newborn nursery as her respirations slowed down and she started to turn blue. They also wanted to follow up on her abdomen as it appeared distended and ripply. The x-rays showed air in the intestines so that is not a problem. The breathing issue is still unsolved, so when all else fails, she's on antibiotics assuming it's an infection. But this grandma's arms are aching to hold her! Kristin (her mommy) will probably go home tomorrow-Thursday- but doesn't know if Rylea will be going with her.

So, now that the surprise element is over, here are the last projects for Rylea.
Pattern: Shibui Onesie
Yarn: Shibui Sock Yarn
Needles Sizes 3 and 1
This was fun to knit and everyone who sees it loves it. I can't wait to see it on her.

Yarn: Dale Baby Uhl
Needles: ? I can't remember-will follow up on that.
