Dear little one,
I'm starting a project just for you this week, and I'm really excited about it. A baby quilt -- my first attempt at quilting! I'm sure it won't turn out perfectly, but I hope you spend many happy hours lying on it, gazing at those of us who love you, and exploring the world around you. I hope you grow to love it as you get older and can use it as a quilt on your own little bed.
And I sure hope those new-fangled ultrasound things are pretty accurate, because on the off-chance you're not the girl we're expecting, you might find a quilt with coral and pink in it a little bit odd.
Oh, and I'm making a quilt for your big sister, too, so she can have something new and special when you arrive. Shhh, don't tell her... it's a surprise!
