Perfect Son (formally known as Rotten Son)

Conall Rafael Munoz is here! He was born on Monday morning at 9:02 a.m., is 20" long and weighed 8 pounds, 12 1/4 oz. at birth. We just got home from the hospital this morning, and everyone seems to be doing really well, Bella (daughter) included.

You forget how tiny newborns are; Bella feels like a giant in comparison to him, when, in reality, she's still just little herself. Has all his fingers and toes, a ferocious little scowl, black hair and blond eyebrows, we'll see what happens there... (Bella had red eyebrows from the get-go, but her hair was red when she was born.)

Oh, and for the mystically inclined, he was born with a caul. (Very surprising since the midwife stripped my membranes...) (ah, birthing, so glamorous! lol)

(The "Legend" part is the interesting part.)

I just realized that everyone but me is napping. Hmmm. Think I'll go join them.

All weavers with blogs deserve comments on their posts:-) I just found your blog by looking at Etsy and seeing your lovely handwoven items that you have for sale. Since today was a pretty important day in your life and that of your new son, let me be the first to congratulate you on the newest person in your family. Look forward to seeing more of your work.

Thanks, guys! Up for a middle of the night feeding... :) Can't wait to get back to weaving soon - everything is going so much more easily this time around!
