Congratulations! How wonderful... is that a hand knitted hat I spied?

Marlene said...

Thanks everyone. She's such a sweet and beautiful baby it was hard to leave her last night.

Nicole, yes that is a handknitted hat but surprisingly it was not knitted by my daughter or I, nor by anyone we personally know. It was one knitted by volunteers and given out by the hospital when she had her first bath.
