I'm an Auntie!!!

My nephew was born yesterday.  I am now a very proud Auntie Jaime!  I had forgotten how tiny new babies are.  Mims is in the 95th percentile for height, I'm used to 44" tall five-year-olds.  I also got a chance to swaddle him, which was a bummer because it's been 5 years, and I'm so rusty that he was able to pop the blanket apart in ten seconds...
His initials are DC, and his daddy (and uncle!) are huge comic book fans, so of course I had to make him a DC logo hat.  I know, it's an old version of the logo, but it's iconic, and the new logo doesn't evoke the same nostalgia.  Also, I wasn't sure I could actually crochet the new logo... lol!

You might notice that I crocheted a baby head to model the hat.  If it helps, I felt like a nut when I did it, but I expect that my nephew is going to inspire a lot of creations, and I needed an 'at home' model. Mims tossed it around for a while like a ball, but quickly lost interest in it, so I think I'm actually going to be able to use it for it's intended purpose...

Anyway, I just wanted to brag that I have a new baby to love!  Congratulations to S and B, and welcome to our family DC!!!
xoxo
