Handmade goodness

My baby boy has been the recipient of some beautiful handmade gifts. They're so lovely and special, I just have to share...

From the talented and generous Carrie P.:

burp cloths and bibs
How cute are those??? We aren't quite ready for the bibs yet, but those burp cloths have already seen a lot of action.

From one of the amazing moms at my older son's preschool:

baby blanket
What a blanket! It is truly just beautiful. It is a great size, and I love the little ties she included-- it rolls up quite nicely for easy transport.

And from my best friend:

white blanket
She knitted this gorgeous blanket. When I opened it up, I was truly speechless.

cutie pie on blanket
And there he is, up close and personal. Such a cutie! (Ahem. No bias here, of course!)

It just makes me feel so proud and happy and special that these talented people took time out to make something for my son. I'm truly blessed to have such amazing friends.

Handmade gifts are the best!


  1. Oh, MY! How cute is he?!?!?! He looks just like you . . . so precious. If I close my eyes and think about it really hard, I can almost imagine holding him :-)

  2. He is absolutely gorgeous! Is it OK to call a boy gorgeous?

  3. I have been waiting patiently for a picture and was so happy tonight to see one. It was worth the wait too! What a cutie!!! I love all that hair. Give him a great big hug from me.

  4. Wow, Robin! He is adorable. Gorgeous hair, gorgeous baby!

  5. I completly agree with everyone, he is sooo cute!

  6. Wow, you have been able to work on some gorgeous blocks. Work on them while you can. You know that time will be less at your sweet little guy grows. What nice gifts you got. So glad you like the things I sent.
