I would like to introduce the newest member of the Hammond clan. Ella was born Sunday night, and both mom and baby are doing well.
She clearly didn't understand the part where she was supposed to be an August baby, or maybe she did and just wanted to surprise everyone.
I needn't have worried about this little sweater fitting her. She weighs just 5 pounds, 15 ounces, officially making her the smallest baby I have ever held.
Of course I had to introduce her to knitting and tea. Maybe I'm a wee bit biased, but I think she looks quite interested.

Welcome baby Ella!
