A knitted Blanket

The day of our Baby shower my mom gave us a very special blanket. It was the blanket I was brought home from the hospital in. She had saved it all these years and now wanted to pass it on to me, as we were getting ready to welcome home our own little bundle of joy. She made me a copy of this picture of my dad bringing me home wrapped in the blanket. I knew I wanted to get a picture of Kev with Rowan wrapped in the blanket as well when we brought her home.


I will always cherish both these pictures.

  1. I seriously got goosebumps! This is so precious and will be such a special memory for your family 🙂

  2. This is adorable!

  7. I got tears on my eyes! How sweet.

  8. That is so precious. I don’t know why, but it makes me want to cry happy tears.

  9. Why is it that all of your posts lately bring a tear to my eye!? Yesterday I finally had time to catch up on your blog, and read your birth story. I was balling like a baby! I’m sooo happy for you!!! You’re going to be an amazing mother, I’m sure of it. You and Kev seem to be such great, loving people, I guess thats why I feel like I know you, and cry at all the happy moments you share with your readers!
