I finished the blanket, now where's the baby?

I have been working on this little blanket for a while now, and I love how it turned out. I did small 3" squares with fleece on the back. Instead of tying it, which is what I normally do, I took the advice of my friend Amber and sewed with my machine along the seams to sort of quilt it. It is so soft and feels so nice! 

So the blanket is done, but I have to wait for July for the baby. Yep, we are adding a baby to our family in July and I think he/she will love this little togi, as Avery calls it (togi is his blanket). 


It has yellow, white, yellow gingham, and monkey with green leaves flannel, and cream soft squares with hearts. 

The back is banana peals, it goes with the monkey theme on the front. I think it goes, does it? Too late now!

And finally for your viewing pleasure, here is a photo of Avery's latest trick, two sippie cups at once! I'm so proud. But seriously who drinks water and milk at the same time!

Congrats on another little one! Are you going to find out the gender? I loved your Dr. Seuss poem... story of my life I get random things stuck in my head ALL the time. It's even worse now that Carter is in school and learns all these little catchy poems and songs. Good luck with the pregnancy, I hope your feeling good. Oh and the quilt is awesome too!
