It doesn't seem possible...James arrived last week and gets cuter every time I see him. He looks like both parents but mostly Mommy. He's a big, healthy boy and we're truly blessed.
After I called my husband from the hospital, the next thing I felt was the urge to call my mom.
Before she passed away a little over a year ago, my mother gave me a baby blanket she had made to give to my daughter if she had a baby. I think when you spend time placing stitch after stitch, whether it's knitting or, in this case, embroidery, you put a little of your own spirit into whatever you make. I feel my mom's spirit when I visit my daughter - I felt it before James was born. If she could be anywhere in this world right now. I know that's where she would be.
