Cozy Baby



Baby boy's wardrobe was about complete...lots of store bought basics from the States. And I had already sewed him a little layette. Perhaps the only thing missing was a few little sweaters...to keep baby warm.

And I can't knit. Thank goodness for Brazilian Grandma Vera and her swift knitting needles. My mother-in-law just delivered these gorgeous little jackets--lovingly handmade and soft to the touch. The most sentimental aspect...she based one of the designs on my husband's initialed "FM" cream baby sweater.

She left a space before the initial of our last name "M"...it was either that or a question mark.

Baby boy...baby boy. Time is running short. We need a name!
