Water Babies & a Baby Quilt

Jason & Susana were nice enough to let us use their awesome pool while they were out of town last week. Thanks guys! The boys love swimming.

My pregnant self. Not the most flattering pic, but for documentation purposes....

Lucas sporting a Mohawk, looking good!

Tyrone is usually more daring than Gavin and has jumped off the cliff before. Gavin surprised us by just climbing up there and jumping off.

Tyrone just jumped off the cliff. Cousin Katie in the background.

My water babies

This pic took forever to take. Daddy would not take the shot until both boys were looing at the camera. All they wanted to do was get in the water.

This is the quilt I made for our baby, Niamh. I love Toille print and I found some really cute material at Walmart. I have only ever made one other quilt, so I enlisted the help of my mother-in-law who is a great quilter. It only took us a few hours and she did all the ribbon border. She is the best. I am very proud of how it turned out and I can't wait to see our little angel sleeping peacefully under it. I am also grateful to my mother-in-law for helping me, she is such a wonderful lady. Thank you Diana!

Hey, guys!, So glad you were able to use the pool. The pics of your boys are soooo cute. I can't believe what a dare devil your little Tyrone is! Luke is still afraid of the slide! We need to get together soon, maybe a movie night!
