the baby's quilt (in her room!)

so, i haven't gotten around to taking any pictures of the nursery yet. i've been waiting for the drapes to be made and a lamp to arrive and be hung, but they are both delayed. what i really wanted to take a picture of is the quilt that i finished for her. i've been all over these colors lately and i'm so happy with how it turned out!

that was what i was going to post about on july 22nd, but i actually started to go into labour that morning and obviously had other things on my mind. that evening, our daughter was born! alice mae weighed 9 pounds, 2 ounces and was 22 inches long!

during our hospital stay (bc women's was amazing!) my husband had to come home to pick up some things and he excitedly wrote a welcome message for alice on a little chalkboard we had hanging on the nursery room door. neither of us realized that in his sleep deprived, new father excitement he forgot to include the letter 'c' in welcome. i thought it was sweet so we left it that way. 

it's been really wonderful so far, even with the lack of sleep. she is a little doll. the biggest adjustment for me right now is trying to find a little bit of time to catch up on emails, or brush my teeth, or even eat sometimes! but that's okay, i imagine soon enough we will both have a little more of a routine. and i already know how quickly this time is going by, so i just want to enjoy it.
