First, we met my dad's mom, his sister, and her husband (my grandma, aunt, and uncle) at Ikea for lunch (and shopping, of course!) I could spend days in that place so I made sure to pick up a catalog for
|Clockwise around the table: Little Man, my mom, my dad, Princess, my aunt, my grandma feeding Star a bottle.|
|Little Man enjoyed an elderflower juicebox with his lunch.|
|Little Man preferred to hang out in the kids' section rather than join "the girls" for shopping.|

|Nostalgia-when I was a kid staying with my grandparents, I loved to listen to my grandparents' grandfather clock chime and watch my grandpa wind it every night before bed. Unfortunately, it stopped working a few years ago.|
|My grandma's killer spoon collection from my grandparents' travels. Someday, I hope to have a collection this big!|
I was thrilled to receive some swaddling blankets for Star from my aunt when we met her at Ikea. She hand crochets the edges of a full yard of flannel to make these blankets. The blankets are lightweight and big enough for swaddling even older babies. She always makes 2 identical blankets for each niece or nephew which means that when one is in the wash, there's a spare. My older two children still sleep with and treasure theirs. Definitely a keepsake for years to come!
|Star loves being swaddled!|
|My aunt let me pick out my own flannel fabric for these blankets and I fell in love with this argyle owl print.|
