    I just found out a week ago yesterday that my daughter is expecting her first baby (our first grandchild!!). I have made a Beatrix Potter quilt to give her on Mothers' Day, along with a story book that contains all of Beatrix Potter's stories. I'm going to call the quilt "Sleepytime Story Quilt", but I 'm not sure if I should make the label, and write in the book, not knowing the baby's sex or name, or wait until he/she is born.

    What do you think?..... The baby's not due until Nov. 2st.

    I don't know. I'm not a Grandma yet. I'd probably be as excited as you!!!!!!!!! :D:D
    My thought though- wait on that part until the baby is born?
    Congratulations!!!!!!!

    I just checked, and there are 533 members on board right now. I can keep a secret, but I don't know about the other 532 people..........

    Congratulations. I can hear the excitement in your words.

    I just remembered something a friend of mine did. She made a quilt for her first and it said "To my first grandchild". It was wonderful!!

    That is really strange - we thought of the same thing at exactly the same moment - I think that's exactly what I'll do. Thanks to everyone (BIG HUG)!!

    I would do both, make a label for the quilt, and write in the book, to a sweet baby bundle of joy. And tell write about the feelings you had making the quilt, and awaiting the arrival of this sweet little blessing.

    Congrats on first grandchild and a beautiful quilt. I have two grandsons and a granddaughter n law and one great granddaughter (the first girl in our family). She is so special. I don't get to see her often, tho, because my grandson is in the Air Force and stationed in Little Rock, Arkansas right now.

    Love the quilt and the idea of putting the book with it.
    I would wait till the baby is born. You might want to write something in the book about when she was born.
