At 4:41 pm on April 14, 2014, we welcomed baby Christian Joseph Ross into our family! He was 8 lbs. 8oz. and 20 inches long. His older brothers Roman, Adrian, and Jonathan came to see him when he was just a few hours old and were so happy to have a new member of the family!
As with my other deliveries, I had to be induced. This gave me time to knit while the pitocin gradually did its work. I had been working on a sweater for myself for the past several weeks and relished the opportunity to have some kid-free time to work (despite the contractions)!
Since this blog has had a heavy focus on knitting, I decided to share some of my favorite pics of my new little one wearing his homemade apparel:
Dressed to go home in the hat and socks I designed, worn with the first sweater I ever knit. Christian got to spend some time with Grammy in his new outfit.

Of course, I literally have hundreds of pictures of him already. I decided to narrow it down to just a few that showed some of his new knitwear. Now I’m working on some coordinating sweaters for my entire crew of boys!
