Welcome, Milo Rafael! Born August 11, 2019
First of all, thank you so much for the well-wishes you all left in the comments on my last post. They mean the world to me!
I'd like to share with you the happy news that our son, Milo Rafael Garcia Gat, was born on August 11, 2019.
How was he born? C-section! Was that my first choice? No. Rolling with the punches that day, I labored for 12 hours with my wonderful husband Carlos at my side, but Milo wouldn't budge. Eventually we decided that the C-section was our only option.
Milo weighed 3.45 kilos (7.6 pounds) at birth. He is breastfeeding.
What's with that name?
Milo is named for Mila, my grandmother, and Rafael, my grandfather.
How's it going?
We are at home and on our own (my mom left a week ago). We are doing amazing! I'd love to give more details but since this is a professional knitting blog, I'll just say that we are so happy. Obviously we are sleep-deprived and many more of our conversations now revolve around poop, but we are glad for this new phase of our lives and to start our family.
When are we going to see some new knitting videos?
My husband, Juan Carlos, has decided to stay home and help with Milo and KnitFreedom so we can continue posting content and new videos. That's very exciting for me!
Big hugs and you'll be hearing from us soon once things settle down.
Love, Liat, Carlos, and Milo.
