    We are going to be Grandparents again!!

    My dear son and his wife of five years just told us she is 9 weeks along!! This will be our third grandchild and their first baby. My dh and I are very excited.

    I saved his bumper pads from when he was a baby and I made his crib set. It was care bears. A few years ago I used that fabric in a quilt for any "future" children they may have. I am SO glad I saved that fabric. Here take a peek at the quilt I made ahead of time.

    Oh it's adorable and congratulations! I too have some of that fabric saved from things I made for my son and nieces when they were little. It brings back great memories.
