Ups and Downs

I'm learning that having a baby can be wonderful. Like when they're sleeping. And not so fun. Like when they're awake. Kidding. Mostly.

Babies get so many sweet, adorable, thoughtful gifts (because, face it, buying gifts for babies is just plain fun). Awesome. Babies cannot write out their own thank-you notes. Not awesome.

Best of all, handmade gifts.

From my sister-in-law, customized onesies:

A bib from an old friend's wife:
B Bib

Bootays from my aunt:

Blankets, from left to right, fleece and crocheted from my mother-in-law, knit from my mom and a simple double layer flannel blanket, sewn by me:

And a yummy brown and aqua quilt from my mom:

Now, on to those thank-you notes.

I'm still writing thank you notes three months after my daughter was born! I blame my husband - he won't write them for his friends and family so I have to do them all. Good luck with yours
