Family friends welcomed their son, Joshua Matthew into the world yesterday - 3 months early. Joshua weighs 2 lbs, 5 oz, and is doing well in the NICU. I don't know what doing well really means for him - he seems to be breathing on his own and he is pink in color. But, I'm sure he's still in for a long haul, and I can't imagine how his parents must be feeling.
So, I knit him a hat. All babies wear hats in the hospital, and the ones the hospitals provide are usually a yucky yellow color sleeve taped shut at the top. Happy people supposedly are healthier, and having happy people around you can't hurt. I figured a cute little hat will bring smiles to people. I took the picture next to a tube of lipstick, so you can get an idea of how small a 3 lb. preemie hat is.
Please keep Joshua in your prayers.
