Tiny Toes

Last week, my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their daughter, Mazie, into the world.  She is perfectly pink and sweet!  I am so proud and excited to begin a new chapter of my life as her auntie!

She's home safe and sound now and the family is settling into a new routine.  My brother called me to tell me this sweet story: during the night, when it's his turn to soothe the sleepless baby, he settles in to the glider and rocks little Mazie.  He tucks the corner of the circus quilt that I made for them behind his head, and drapes it over both of them with the light shining through, so they're all warm and cozy.  In their circus-themed baby room, they feel like they're in their very own circus tent!  

It warms my heart to know that something I made can provide comfort during those long, newborn nights.

I get to meet her in a few weeks!  There will be pictures!



  1. That's such a sweet story! Baby toes are the cutest!

  2. Congrats to you Aunt Carole Ann! The handmade gifts that family and friends have given our children are the ones that have stood the test of time... Saul is sleeping in his crib right now with a dinosaur from Ms. Bonnie over at Bonnie's Bundles in Chester and Ror is tucked under a quilt from "the Aunties" in Chester, women who have looked out for Sean during his growing up. How fortunate Mazie is to have you!
