    Thanks for the story. My 2nd son was like that too. Now at 32 he's still a man of few words & a much deeper thinker than his mother!

    My grandson, 17 months old, says "mama", "dadda", "hi" (for hello and good-bye), and various sounds, but nothing that is repeatable. I am making him a quilt with cars, trucks, dogs, and planes; lots of colors. I am hoping that a similar experience will take place. You are blessed! :-D

    My daughter (now 29) learned her colors on a Cathedral Windows quilt that i had made when i was in high school. i still have that quilt today and she wants it. She wont get it until i fix all the little "torn" pieces that have popped up over the years.

    Great story. However, it reminds me of the quote from some wise person (unfortunately, I don't know who) New parents spend the first 2 years teaching their children to walk and talk and the next 16 years trying to get them to sit down and shut up. LOL

    My mom always made quilts from scraps of our clothing----we loved picking out our own----my kids did too and now I tell my grandchildren the story of the quilt.
