A blanket that looks like shafts of wheat for my heat-of-summer baby. Clearly I'm not worried about matching my children's blankets with their birth seasons. I like the light lace feel of it. It's superwash wool, but the knit is light. Perfect for these warm days. I throw it on her while she's napping or to block the AC in the car.
Yesterday I started packing up Lucy's newborn clothes. Already! She's just barely a month old. I forgot how fleeting those first tender weeks of life are. But the process is kind; though I put away the clothes that don't fit her little body anymore, she started to give me a few smiles yesterday. I love how her lips wriggle while she tries to smile. She mostly makes an O with her mouth. Adorable. Each sorrow of having a growing baby is tempered with some new and exciting milestone. I love my baby girl. I wish I could press a pause button and soak up each moment. Alas, that isn't how life works, so I'll try to savor the sweet moments as they rush by me.
