#1: A stack of embellished burp rags sewn by a long time friend, Amy. So cute!
Not only did I love receiving these gifts, but Livia's favorite blanket that she sleeps with every night is the crocheted blanket. I never forced it upon her, she just gravitated to it (and she had a lot to choose from -- I received no less than 15 blankets). And I truly believe because she can feel the love that went into making it.
This brings me to my point. The perfect baby shower gift is one that is handmade! A coworker of mine, Christine, is having a little girl. And although I'm going in on an "office gift" (something off her registry), I couldn't help but crochet her something special.
