Baby Love

DD#2 is expecting her first baby in September, and hubby & I are finally going to be grandparents! YAY! Her and I have been getting things ready for the baby and it's been a lot of fun for me - I was tickled that she asked me to help. I just pulled this little quilt out of the dryer and snapped a couple pictures of it to share with you - I love that it's so soft now - and the raw edges of the appliqued circles are fuzzy. I can just see our new baby boy all wrapped up in it and sleeping peacefully.


I love the colors that she chose - definitely not my normal palette, that's for sure!

                   






You can see the rest of the baby's nursery here:

And you can see pictures from the recent baby shower that DD#1 produced here:

Families are what it's all about - don't you agree?  (BTW - his name is Tyce)

That may be my favorite quilt ever. It is so cute and I love the colors! I sent you an email with the information about the fabric I used in my curtains, but I might as well tell you here too that I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby. Congratulations about being a first time grandparent. There's nothing better!

That is so adorable! I love the colors she chose... very bright and stimulating. The walls are bright, but a beautiful color! Your bedding brings the whole room together for a wonderful completed look.

Yes, I agree 100%... families are what it's all about!
