Thanking Misses Kwitty and some baby pictures

Look what arrived in the mail the other day!

Not the shelf, the adorable banner with Amelia's name on it!! I've been waiting for the sun to shine in her room to take a picture, but it just isn't happening. Misses Kwitty made the birdy banner and I absolutely love it, Amelia does too.
Thank you Misses Kwitty!! (sorry, the picture doesn't do it justice)

Oay, so now I'll bore you with lots of baby talk. Amelia is doing well. She's been to her first doctor's appointment and has surpassed her birth weight. We're very proud. :)

She's so small that she nearly never gets a chance to wear something girly, none of her clothes fit yet. She's spending most days in side snap shirts & pants. She got all dolled up for the doctor though. 

Here you can see miss Amelia hanging out in her fancy rocking chair. She digs it! Once we got her home I quickly whipped up about 6 flannel receiving blankets with my stash and serger. We get a ton of use out of them, especially at night when she's wrapped up like a burrito.

She looks so funny, but this swaddling business really works!

Hey Ginny and Amelia--

Thanks for the nice picture, it was a real pleasure to make the little banner for your new sweety! It's so cute on your shelf :o)

Love the pictures, she is a real cutey pie!

Whenever anyone in the family has a new baby, I do what you did...I go buy a bunch of flannel and serge them up a bunch of receiving blankets! They are so appreciated and you can really save a bundle by making them yourself!

Smiles, Karen

What an adorable banner! And there is really nothing cuter than a swaddled baby- Amelia is just a doll!

She looks so small in that last picture. I have 1 nephew and 2 nieces and it always amazes me how tiny they were when they were newborns.

Amelia is very sweet.

So cute!! The banner and the baby! Nice job with the swaddle! My little boy ALWAYS busts his arms out, so I stopped putting them in and just do his feet! :D Amelia is so sweet and tiny! Congrats!!
