Debumpify: verb.  To give birth.

No, not me!  Some of you may remember the circus baby blanket I made a few months ago for my sister’s bump.  For the entire pregnancy we didn’t know if the bump was a boy or a girl … oh the suspense, it was killing me.

Finally, after what seemed like years (and that was just the labour, my poor sister) the bump showed itself… or should I saw HERself, and was named Pixie.  Even though I had planned to bust in on my sister at the hospital the minute the bump debumped, I ended up needing to fly to the opposite end of the country for a week, and finally met my seven day old niece for the first time today. 

Proud Aunty?  Hell yes.  I wrapped her in her blanket and dressed her in hand knitted goodness….

… and fell totally in love with her… what a blessing for our family.  She is ace.
