She just hates it!

Egg is not a fan of being strapped into her car seat. See for yourself. It doesn't just look like she's howling, she definitely made some noise. And she can be loud!

I can't get over this suit. It was a gift from my husbands colleague Louis and students Monica and Carolin. I have to smile every time I look at Egg wearing it.

Can you believe that she is already one month old?

This one is for Katherine

It's a bit too big on her yet, but she looks cute as a button in your knitting!

I'm no better than other new Moms!

Yes, this is going to be one of these blogs for a while - apart from the fact that I have no knitting to show, I find pictures of my brand new daughter so much more enticing.

Egg in the hospital. Almost time to go home!

Egg is two days home - and I'm TIRED.

We're slowly getting used to each other.

To everyone who left a comment or send an e-mail, thank you so much for your kindness!

Meet Egg!!

Our days are a bit scrambled since her arrival, but it'll be sunny side up soon enough!! (She chooses to sleep during the day and be awake during the night...) She's of course beautiful and the best baby ever!!!

Here she is - freshly hatched:

She was born on September 30th at 9.35 p.m., 11 hours after getting induced. I reacted very well to the Cervidil, had contractions early (after an hour they started, which is very rare) and it took 1.5 hours of pushing to get her out.

She's 50 cm (20") tall, and weighed 3,635 grams (almost exactly 8 pounds) at birth.
