Meet Teapot!

Baby on Western Star

I’ve been waiting & waiting to write this post & here it is!  On May 3, I gave birth to our little girl, affectionately known as “Teapot.” ( Our little one was in a funky position shortly before birth & while the Midwife was trying to figure out what she was doing, one of the midwifery students (also our Doula) said she’s “kinda like a teapot.”  I loved the name the moment I heard it!)

Life is pretty darn amazing now around here!  We’ve been spending the past 2 1/2 weeks snuggling, napping, nursing, changing diapers, & mostly taking it easy.  Mornings are my favorite times (yes, you did read that correctly!) now & I love to wake up just to see her smile & squirm!

I’m still taking a break from quilting, but every week we’re able to do more, so who knows, maybe I’ll be back in the studio next week?  In the meantime I *plan* to post pictures of quilts I’ve longarmed but have never shared!  (please keep in mind I *planned* to write this post for over one week!)

*this newborn photo was taken by a sweet friend, Jennifer Larkin, if you’re in the DC Metro area, I highly recommend her!
