Welcome to the world baby Sabrina!

Talk about complete abandonment of blog... for 7 months no less. Why? Well, I found out I was pregnant... Yes, pregnant in my mid forties... eek! To say I needed 7 months to adjust to the idea is an understatement, haha.

So here we are with a very special addition to the family, yes, another girl, baby Sabrina. She was born September 16 and is now 2 weeks old exactly.

The big girls adore her...

Welcome to the world baby Sabrina! You are so very precious...

Is there anything better than knitting for baby? Nope. I loved knitting the Pickles Darling dress for Sabrina...
