Flirting and The Friendship Quilt

10:13 PM

   Joce and I had a little practice session tonight....for everyone knows, it's never too early to train them up in the way they should go....

" Beautiful? In this ol' thang? Well...I just don't think so?  Reeeally?"

"Aw shucks, you shouldn't flatter me so.  Just look at me, I'm blushin'.  You ol' sweet-talker you."

 *Gigglegigglegiggle* "Well I declare! I don't know where you come up with such things!  Aren't you just a piece o' good ol' fashioned CHARM!"

   "What the....have you lost yo' mind?! No I will certainly NOT accomp'ny you to the preschool picnic, and I'm gonna go fetch my Daddy to rassle you up some SENSE!"

Apparently, our little girl already has a distinct Southern accent, we can't figure out where she got it from....

  She endured getting all dressed up *outfit courtesy of Janene* so we could take pictures of her on the lovely quilt her "Aunties" gave her!  It's a new tradition amongst my group of addition to presenting a newly dating or newlywed member with a plunger for "taking the plunge",  now we each complete a piece for a quilt for a new baby! A friendship quilt, I like to call it.  It is snuggly and warm, and filled with encouraging words! What more could you ask for?  I have a wonderful group of friends. 

   Not only did they create such a lovely keepsake quilt, but they also threw me a shower from across the miles, sending gifts for Jocelyn in the mail!  Getting mail is NEVER a bad thing, but these packages were especially dear, as they were hugs from my lovely friends far, far away from me.  It was a way for them to partake in my "journey" into motherhood in spite of the distance between us, and I hope to return the favor someday! These pictures are long over-due, as you can tell by the Christmas tree in the background...

  Thanks so much, Jewel-Heidi-Janene-Loretta-Lindsay-Sharon-Merlene.....I feel blessed to have such dear and thoughtful friends!  Jocelyn can't WAIT to meet you all!
