happy baby, space quilt!

I finally almost got a picture of Olive smiling!



And it just happened to be during "new quilt photoshoot" time, a huge thank you goes out to mrs_dragon, who also made Josie's airplane quilt, sent us this space one, with big stars on one side and on the other side, eight planets and the sun all to scale (she claims, I have not measured but it's believable) it's amazing! Here's Olive looking at the earth, with Jupiter in there too:



Olive just turned 8 weeks and we get very sparse smiles, usually in the morning when she first wakes up, and usually when she gets a good look at Marc's morning hair. We can't really do much to make her smile so I've been unable to get them on camera until now, but I know there will be many more so I wasn't too worried.

This outfit is one that we bought her when I was pregnant, it's sort of monumental because 98% of everything she wears is a hand-me-down, and since even some of Josie's clothes were hand-me-downs they're like third hand, forth hand, who knows. But dang it kid you were important enough to get someone to make you a quilt, of your very own forever!

Can I just randomly say that like a lot of second time parents, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about any other baby except Josie, but I've learned something about the universe lately. Everyone gets to be the baby. Everyone gets a chance to be the newest, smallest, cutest thing for SOME time. in life. at school. at fortune 500 companies. so whenever you're that person, you've got to soak it in a bit. you deserve it! you may not be the biggest or strongest but you have a unique and powerful reason for everyone to love you.

That second pic is awesome! I'm telling myself a story about she's already interested in space exploration, as exhibited by her expression and general gaze.

for real, wouldn't that pic work great on her astronaut profile page someday?
