Precious Motherhood Moment

One of those moments you don't want to forget.... {that make up for all the rest!}

I tucked Big G in last night, under his new quilt (hockey side up, as predicted). In one corner is a hand written label that I had applied, with some words of love for my boy.
He asked, "Which corner has the label? I want to sleep with my cheek against it."


As I was leaving and turning out the light,
"Can I sleep with the light on so I can look at my quilt some more?"

My heart is full to the brim.

So precious! And my son liked to sleep with the backing side up too, just to look at the robots.

Write it down and take a pic of him with the quilt so you have it forever.

The quilt is absolutely gorgeous, Kristie! I love the stories that go with its creation and that your little guy loves it too. I am in love with quilting these days and you are keeping that love strong :) Have a good weekend - hope the snow's not too deep in your part of the country!
