Love in the Mail
On Saturday a package from Angela arrived. On the left is a "taggie," as she called it. It is a small blanket with different textured ribbons attached to all four sides. Not only is it very colorful (or shall I say "Colorfool" ?), it is very soft. I'm sure the baby will love this! Spenser already does!
Angela also included a matching burp cloth, which are coming increasingly handy and scarce these days. I can't seem to have enough!
Both are made from a very adorable vintage sheet. Very cute.
And, she also sent some vintage sheets to me. Unfortunately, I packed up my sewing machine 2 days before the baby was born. Now I'm itching to get it back out!! These new fabrics are killing me. Must. Sew.
Thank you, Angela!
Little man is 3 weeks old today. His cheeks are getting fuller each day. All of the pictures I've taken lately are blurry. I guess I'll be forced to take some more!
I have to go back to Gettysburg this morning. I left a pair of my pajama bottoms in the hotel last week! Luckily we're only 25-30 minutes from Gettysburg.
And Joe got a 97% on his research paper (which he submitted last night) and a 94% in the on-line class he is taking. He already has his Masters in counseling, but is now working towards a second Masters so he can get his license to practice. The goal is that he will be finished with schooling before he retires from the Army (in 5 years) and can start another career. Yay, Joe!
