a weekend of firsts…

What a great holiday weekend! The sun was out and we had a chance to spend much of the weekend at the beach.

Max enjoyed his first weekend at the lake

relaxing on the picnic quilt

his first taste of Lake Champlain

first time hanging out with new cousins

Additionally, though not pictured… first fireworks, first boat ride, first real giggles, and last night – first time sleeping through the night, which I’m sure was just a fluke, but it certainly was nice!

I also got this little quilt finished up for my cousin’s new baby, Jackson. This is a quilt you’ve seen here before, but it’s one of my favorites and I think it’s a perfect one for a modern little baby boy! I hope it will be well loved!

Hope you all had lovely weekends as well!

    Such wonderful memories. The picture of the 3 babies together in their strollers reminds me of my middle son and 2 of my nephews…all born within 3 weeks of eachother (8 years ago). Thanks for sharing. Smiles~Beth

    Oooh, that looks fun… and now I have to ask you a question: how did you hold/ secure/ manage Max on a boat? We’re about to buy a boat and are due with our first kiddo in August and for the life of me, I can’t find anything that tells me what to do with an infant on a boat. Car seat? Sling? Carrier? Hold on for dear life?

    Max has the Dad moves down pat! Love the pictures you are sharing. My little guy just graduated from NYU! He loves the quilt I made him. All his friends said ” I wish my Mom would make me a quilt!” What you do is so special to so many.

    all of those firsts!! – he’s growing so fast and getting more adorable each day.
    Keep the baby pics coming, because soon enough he’ll be a proper boy (and as adorable as mine is, he was way cuter when he was a little round chubby bubba!!!!)
