Perfect 10

We have 10 nieces and nephews (actually, 8 nieces and 2 nephews to be exact). I have finally met the sweet 10th -- Claire Elizabeth.

Today I am home, safe and sound, after a quick trip to meet and greet this precious lump of lovely. I was smitten as soon as I saw her shiny, black hair and wide eyes. She smelled of a dream and just squished into my arms with chunky pleasure. Remarkable.

Thank you to my brother and his wife for hosting me at their home in Portland. (I love that city and can't wait to go back!) My cup runneth over.

Welcome back. She IS a doll. Love, love, love the quilt. Were you up all night sewing?

Rachel said...

So jealous! That you got to see her and of the blanket. They are both wonderful.
