I Didn't Forget, Baby

A week or two ago, I decided I should write down a "to do" list,
of anything I should try to get done before Kendall is born.
In my head the list was pretty short.
I was thinking that we would need to get Moira established in the big kid's room,
& clean the infant car seat & then call it good & done & ready.
As I started writing, I realized I had more stuff to do.
One thing that finally came to mind was,
I had made baby quilts & a little toy animal for all the other kids.
But, it had not yet crossed my mind to make anything for Kendall.

Poor baby!  Mommy didn't forget you.  I've been thinking about you,
and anticipating your arrival.
It just took me a while to remember this thing.
I am trying to make up for lost time.
This last week has been productive.
I am loving the way your baby quilt is turning out.
I hope you will love it, too.
(Like your biggest sister, who literally has been loving her baby quilt to pieces.)

I finished the quilt top for you this past week.  
I am pretty well pleased.

This next week I'll hopefully get the front & batting 
& back all sewn together & bound up.
I'm going to get it done for you baby girl!
