Rag Quilt for Katelynne

A few weeks before Kate was born I made this quilt for her! In this photo, however, you see her big brother is putting it to good use :) I made the quilt big enough that I actually like to use it myself! This is the first time I have actually taken the time to quilt an X on each square of the quilt and I really love how it turned out. This quilt also has two layers of muslin in the middle so it is much thicker than the one I made for Lucas when he was baby- now I need to make him a new one!!!

She's here!

Baby Katelynne arrived on March 7th and she has been such a joy! I wanted to share a photo of her with her big brother! We can't believe how much hair she has- it is SO thick! She's a great eater- in fact she wants to eat about ever 2 hours during the night, but she sleeps good during the day so I am just waiting til she gets onto a schedule of sleeping at night!

My labor and delivery was amazing and I could not have asked for a better experience, I am so glad that my sister in law was able to be there with us.
