Gifts from Aunt Emma

Baby Helen received some amazing handmade gifts, before she was even born!

Emma crocheted not one, but two incredible afghans which now adorn the nursery. This beautiful hexagonal one she gave us a while back and we knew someday it would be well loved by our future child.

This super-soft Emma original was a fabulous shower gift. (Emma also hosted the surprise shower!)

Emma's afghans look so gorgeous in the nursery!

And then she knitted her a dress! Here is baby H modeling it (at 17 days old) while cuddling with the knitter herself:

The dress has silver lizard buttons!

(That's me holding her in that one.)

Baby H is so fortunate to have such a talented, generous, and loving Aunt Emma!!!
