Baby love

I crocheted this little pink hat for Rachel's soon-to-be-born baby. I think the yellow flower and the scalloped edge look so dainty. Patterns for both the hat and flower are on Ravelry. They're fast, easy projects, and I would definitely recommend them. I think every baby deserves some handmade goodness to welcome them into the world.

Rachel and Julie

Rachel is one of my sister's closest friends and the one she's known the longest. They've known each other since they were only weeks old, as their cribs were next to one another at day care. So, I've watched Rachel grow up, and I can't believe that she's going to be a mother in just a couple of months.

What I remember most about Rachel when she was a child is that she'd always tell my sister she loved her. Like, after they had played together and it was time to go home, she'd say, "I love you, Julie." Or later, when they went to different elementary schools and didn't see each other as often as they'd like, Rachel would say, "I love you," when they were finally reunited. It was so sweet and adorable!

Rachel, here's wishing you the best of luck and all the happiness in the world!
