Happiness Is Your Own Fluffy Blanket

My sister Aly made each of the Tillmanitos a quilt, and my dad brought them down with him on his visit from BC this week. Not only are they puffy and warm and snuggly, but they remind us all of Auntie Aly and how much she must love us. (I hear that many a late night and a loving curse word went into the construction process.) We have been getting good use out of them ever since they entered our lives!

Maggie curled up into an adorable Lima bean and napped on her quilt yesterday.

Max, who tends to overheat while sleeping and therefore often refuses blankets, requested this quilt for his nap time, and has napped with it every day since.

I was feeling a tiny bit jealous of the kids' quilts, but Maggie was nice enough to share hers, and Ian was nice enough to illicitly photograph us napping together.

We will all cherish these blankets, and the love that went into them, forever.


(By the way, there will be pictures of Max and Maggie's visit with my dad coming up. I just couldn't fit all of the numerous photos into one post, so I thought it best to categorize them and break them up a bit. Those of you who are waiting with baited breath to witness the Canadianization of our household, just calm down and enjoy the tingly feeling of anticipation, all right?)

Who doesn't love quilts, and sleeping, and sleeping baby pictures, and sleeping mommy and baby pictures....and sleep...oh that reminds me, I should probably get some while the little one is asleep. I know, out of character for me to be awake, but your blog is too cute, you distracted me. Can't wait to see you guys soon and meet Maggie at the next babies with M names convention.

i know a quilt is a little bit of an odd gift to be given in the middle of a californian summer but i wanted to show you guys how much i love you and am thinking about you so i hope it worked.
