Our sweet boy is growing so fast! He is such a joy and loves to interact with his family, especially his brother.
At his 4 month check up today Eli weighed in at 16lbs, 10ozs. (Daniel was 16lbs, 9oz at 9 months!) He is big and solid! Eli wears mostly 6 month clothes, some 9 month, and is in size 3 diapers when he's not in cloth.
This quilt was actually completed last fall, but posting about it had taken the backseat for too long!
I love using embroidery for the labels. I printed off what I wanted to embroider in a fun font, then traced over it on the fabric with pencil. 100x better than using my own handwriting!
I made this as a door prize for my church's ladies retreat. Each woman had two slips of paper with her name and she got to place them a box out front of any two door prizes she was interested in. We drew one name from the box and awarded the winner. I was so flattered at how many women put their names in the box for this quilt, I wish I could have given each one their own!
I did a simple meander with a few little loops, always a classic.
I received this fabric courtesy of the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day almost two years ago at Diary of a Quilter.
For the back I used some larger scraps leftover from my own Christmas quilt.
I now realize that I am behind on blogging about Daniel and Eli's quilts too! Daniel has been enjoying his for a few months now, and Eli's is finished except for sewing the label on the back!
Eli is growing so quickly! At one month he weighed 11 lbs, and was 22.5 inches long.
At two months he weighs in at 13 lbs 13 ozs and 24.25 inches long!
Eli has been such a great baby. He is smiling and cooing and adores his big brother. Many nights he sleeps a seven hour stretch. His 3 month clothes are becoming too small already! What a blessing to get to love on him everyday!
