Homemade from The Heart

I thought I would post some pictures of some things that our family and friends have made for baby Kaylor. We are so blessed to have such great family and friends and we can't wait for Kaylor to be a part of their lives.

The quilt above was made by my grandmother "Mamaw". The picture on the left says "handmade by Mamaw Janice". She makes beautiful quilts and stiched every piece on this butterfly quilt by hand. I know this is filled with a lot of love.

The quilt above was made by Kerry's co-worker Debbie Lewis and friend Carol Byrd. Mrs. Lewis matched this pattern to Kaylor's bedding and it could not have turned out any better. It is so cute and looks so good in her room!

The above onesies were made by my great friend and co-worker Alison Harris. She makes the most adorable outfits, dresses, burp cloths, or basically anything you want by hand. She is starting her own little business on the side and she is getting very busy. It is called Maggie Moo Designs and you see more of what she has made on her blog. I have a link to Maggie Moo Designs on this page, you should check it out! I can't wait until Kaylor can wear these!!

The dress above was made by another co-worker, Amy Rose. She actually made this dress out of a pillow case! It is so cute and I could not resist putting it on here.

This crocheted blanket was made by Kerry's cousin Kayla. You can never have enough of these. I know this was made with a lot of love!! Thanks Kayla!

This hand-painted frame was made by my friend Mandi. It matches Kaylor's nursery perfect and I always love things with initials and names on it!

This was my body cast when I was about 30 weeks pregnant. The art teacher that I work with plastered my stomach and then hand-painted it with a sports theme!! It is so cute and will be so funny to show Kaylor one day.

Our First Blog

Well, I finally did it. I have been meaning to create our family blog for a while now, but now that I am off work, done with cleaning/laundry (for now), caught up on my school work, not in the hospital for kidney stones :), and not in labor, I have time to create one!

I will start by saying how excited/nervous we are in expecting the arrival of our girl, Kaylor Brooke, in the next couple of weeks. My due date is April 12th and I am DEFINITELY ready for her to come. I am officially on maternity leave or for school teachers I am on "sick leave" and just waiting now until something happens. Going places is not very fun and when I did go to Wal-Mart yesterday I just loved the guy in line say to me "When was your due date, yesterday?"

I'm excited for actually having our own blog now and for our family to keep up with us who do not live here. I will keep you updated on the pregnancy!! Pray for us!
