Love

Thank you for all the baby well-wishes…we are adjusting well and even managing to sleep well at night…imagine that!

Luckily I finished up this quilt just before she was born.

I backed it with a minkee fabric I bought locally.  It has a really nice weight to it and is super soft (by Shannon Fabrics).  I quilted it with minimal straight lines here and there to keep it from being too stiff.

The quilt matches her perfectly…I can’t get enough of all the pink!

Almost five years ago I had my girl after two boys (one is named Ryan LOL). There is not a single day that goes by where I don't revel in the pink girliness and love on my sweet baby princess.

I am so happy for you! Your boys will treat her like a queen and she will bring such sass and joy into your lives.

Glad you are getting some sleep!
