I made the quilt top when I was pregnant, but just finished the quilting and binding this weekend. The floral prints are from Moda's Three Sisters, Sanctuary line. I fell in love with the purple fabrics when I was pregnant and just had to make Marie's baby quilt with the coordinates. I love the combination of lavender, pink, green, and yellow.
I'm finding that I'm really treasuring these fleeting baby days in a new way with my second baby.
I love the way her little fists flail and beat against me when she gets mad, and I love how her eyes light up and her whole body trembles with excitement when we are about to nurse. I love her little milky smiles when she finishes nursing and falls asleep, so happy and and contented.
I love the rolls of baby chubbies on her arms and legs! I love how she smells...so soft and sweet. I don't want her to ever change...
I'm trying to enjoy every little moment, because it's only a matter of time and she'll no longer be a baby.
Miss Marie and her Aunt Emily. Marie will be 3 months old next week. They are just over 4 years apart.
