Handmade Baby Gifts

I've kind of been trying to keep Olivia home since she is so little. She was 5 lbs 1 ounce at birth and is still probably under 6 lbs. Our neighborhood has been so excited to meet her. Last night we went on a little walk. We kept getting stopped so people could see her. One lady came out with a gift.

She knitted these baby booties and brought the out to us. Aren't they cute! I can't wait until Olivia can wear them.

She also crocheted around this cute blanket. I LOVE the flowered fabric! And who doesn't love polka dots? The flowered fabric reminds me of my grandma's sheets. I just love it.

Aren't hand made gifts the best! They are the kind of gifts you know you will keep forever, to pass on to your children's children.

I hope when you can take Olivia out more, that the neighborhood spoils you. Lovely gifts already.

Such wonderful gifts!!! My oldest daughter was 5 pounds 6 ounces at birth (she was 5 weeks early)...and she was tiny for awhile...but caught up pretty quickly! I'm sure you're just having such a wonderful time with your lovely daughter!
