This is how our lives are going right now. Everything is going by really fast and life is kind of a blur.

But we are having tons of fun trying to catch moments.

This was my attempt to get a photo of both girls. Anya complied for a moment and then tried to pull Beatrix up on her chest by pulling off her head.

Here is a photo of the quilt that I have been working on for Beatrix. It is a paper pieced hexagon quilt. All of the hexagons were stitched together by hand, mostly over the summer while watching TV and at the park with Anya. After they were all stitched together I appliqued it to the brown border. I then sent it off to my fabulous quilter, aka my mom, and my Dad brought it back to me. I am totally in love with it and I think I would do another just because it was nice to have a project that I could bring with me places. My mom's quilting is perfect and I am totally impressed with her new skill/job. Thanks Lady!

Oh, I am glad you like it, and think the quilting is ok, though I could point out every mistake. The girls are so cute in the matching dresses. Mom

I am in awe, that's all I can say. The birth story, your great coach husband who noticed your beauty at the best moment possible, the adorable new wonder that is your child, the suh-WEET quilt and adorable matching dresses, the way you seem so in control of everything. I think I'll put you on my cool post list... oh, guess you're there already. ;-} Thanks so much for sharing it all! Oh, and I love that Beatrix becomes Trixie for short - too cute!
Big congrats, bigger hugs,
