"Baby in the Basket!"

Rejoice in the Lord always, delight
yourselves in Him; again I say, Rejoice!
Philippians 4:4

We have a baby on the way due to arrive the first of December! Our daughter and her husband are expecting their second child. We are so very excited and are so thankful for God's many blessings in our lives.

Here is the little lace baby blanket I am knitting. Can you guess what we are having? Not very difficult when you see the pink..... a sure give away! Her name is Adalei Grace. Isn't it a sweet, pretty name? Very feminine and elegant. I saw the pattern and thought it was so fitting for Adalei.

The pattern is a Feathered Baby Blanket by Kaye Smith and was shared with me by my friend Leslie. She blogs at

Layla is so excited about being a big sister. She has picked out a special stuffed animal for her baby sister. Layla talks about baby Adalei often. Bradyn is looking forward to having another cousin, although, he was pretty blunt in saying he really wanted a boy cousin to play with. Kids are so open and honest, don't you just love'em!

A baby girl is a treasure rare;
A sweet pink angel, a little doll,
Nothing else can quite compare.
Her smiles and coos will bring you joy;
She'll fill your hearts with love and pleasure;
So cherish these special infant times,
With your little girl, your precious treasure.
By Joanna Fuchs


  1. Awh...its perfect! I can't wait to see it in her little room with all her stuff! And let Bradyn know that, Lord willing, we'll try and get him a boy cousin :-)

  2. Adalei is going to love the beautiful blanket that has been knitted with so much love. I can't wait to meet the precious new addition to your family. :)

  3. That baby blanket looks absolutely perfect for an Adelai, doesn't it! Refined, sweet, and lovely!

  4. It's coming out beautiful, good job. Where is the pattern from?

  5. Thanks Leslie. It is one of the ones you e-mailed to me a couple of weeks ago. Love this pattern!

  6. OOO fun! Little girls are the best! (next to little boys) Congrats on the grand daughter to come soon.

    Pretty blanket--I like the color too.

    Happy knitting~
