    Quenching my applique fever

    We had a baby shower at work to welcome new babies this year into our school family. I was in the applique mode and decided to use up some of the large fleece blankets I've been hoarding. I had a good time, and the blankets are more than just baby blankets. They can use them for many many years.

    I couldn't forget the big sis of one of our new babies, so I put together a pillowcase for her.

    Those are too cute. Love the "Big Sis" pillow case...great idea!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    How nice of you to include the "big sis" in your gift giving. Love your applique and the simplicity of your blankets. Thanks for sharing.

    Sooooo cute! They'll be treasured & loved for years to come. And great idea to make something for Big Sis, too. I always try to include a gift for the older siblings, too, because I remember how confused my DS was when his sister was born & got showered with gifts & he didn't. Plus, it's one more fun thing to make!

    I always think it is important to acknowledge the older siblings. I was a parent educator for the Parents As Teachers Program for 10 years where I did home visits, advising parents, screening babies, and empowering parents. I always warned parents that the older siblings might not be as excited about that new baby as they are. It would be like your husband coming home with another woman and saying, "Honey, Suzie is going to stay with us forever. Aren't you excited?" I advise relatives to address the older sibling first, instead of going straight to the new baby. After all that new baby doesn't care, but that older sibling is keeping track. I suggest purchasing small gifts from the baby for the sibling, so when that baby is getting in the way, mom can whip out a gift from the baby. Someone who buys you gifts can't be all bad.
