Trevor is here!

My sister gave birth to my Godson, Trevor John, on Monday July 14th, 2014 at 0913. He weighed in at 6lbs 10ozs and was 20.25 inches long. She called me at about 0530 that Monday morning and said she was having contractions about 5 minutes apart. By the time I got to her house about an hour later (after washing up and getting dressed) she was ready to head to the hospital. When she got to the ER at about 0730 she was already 5cm dilated! The labor was fast and intense, we only just got into the birthing room and the doctor was called. The doctor arrived and my sister began pushing. Four contractions later, little Trevor was born! He is perfect, and I am loving being an Auntie. He is so alert, and has the prettiest dark blue eyes, and dark brown hair with just a touch of curl to it.


There he is in some of the hand knits Ive made for him. He is about 2 days old here. The hat is still a bit big on him, but I had to try it on! My sister loves the crossover cardigan because its easy to get on him, and kept him toasty warm in the hospital. He even wore it as part of his “going home” outfit! More photos and finished knits to come…right now Im still in a baby haze, spending all my spare time snuggling him and staring into his big blue eyes.


About zenren

I am in my mid-thirties, and blissfully married to a guy named Dave with whom I have a 17 year old daughter named Anela, and she is my world. I'm the RN Clinical Nurse Manager of a Transitional Care Unit where I work extremely hard to make my nurses and my patients happy. I knit shawls, and hats, and baby sweaters. I obsessively use Burt's Bees lip balm. I love spending weekends on our little slice of lake in northern Minnesota, and laying in the grass near the bonfire on a cool spring night with the kiddo watching for shooting stars while eating gooey s'mores with sticky fingers. I enjoy wrapping up in over-sized, snuggly warm sweaters in the autumn and going for walks with the smell of fallen leaves and trees blazing with color. I read a lot of self-help books. I frequently do not answer my cell phone. My husband adores me because of my quirks, not in spite of them, and I do my best to appreciate that. Im learning to meditate, and have a weakness for a good cup of tea. My nephew is adorable, and brings me so much joy. I knit to wind down, stay sane, and create beautiful things.
