E is for....

In my 28th week of pregnancy, back in 2000, I was hospitalized due to preeclampsia. A week later, I gave birth to my little man. He was 3lbs 2ozs, 16 1/2 inches long. I thought I'd share a picture of him from when he was 3 weeks old, in by arms. E is for "early":



E is also for one of my favorite parts of my little man:




How much do you envy the five year old's eyelashes?!??

And because it's a knitting blog, my latest project, started last night, Pomatomus socks in Trekking:

Those socks are gorgeous, but not nearly as beautiful as your little man. :)

It's good to see your little man has gotten along well. Great socks too!

Why do young boys get the best eyelashes in the world? Both my boys have spectacular eyelashes, too.

You are cruising on that sock! Looks good!

I too am envious of both my son and daughters eyelashes!!! Must have been a scary time then, but your son is a cutie!

Your socks! Wow, love them :)

What a great E! He was soooo tiny - but look at him now. Yes, eyelashes any woman would give their right arm for.

YES!! I love eyelashes. I'm a sucker for men with long eyelashes(hence hubby!) Now, all the little ones got them! Little Man's so handsome! He was soooooo tiny.

I don't want to think about the socks.. you know why.:p

What a handsome WIP you have there, and I don't mean your socks. ;) Of course I think your socks are lovely too.

Holy cow, I never fully appreciated just how early your little guy was born until this moment... I'm just about 26 weeks right now. Thank goodness he's a super healthy wonderful boy. :)

What a beautiful picture of such a tiny child. Thanks for sharing that with us matey. No wonder you're so proud of him.

Hi from Austria! Oh, what beautiful eyelashes - and eyes! - your little man has, a woman could get envious! I so love the photo of him as a baby, what a tiny little one he was - I'm so happy to hear that he's absolutely healthy and doing so well now!
I love how your Pomatomus socks are getting along, great work done!
