Baby Comes Home

Josiah went home on Wednesday afternoon so Grandma and Grandpa had to go visit him in his own element.  Here are a few more pictures of the newest Patterson Grandson.

All ready for the trip home.  “I think I’ll just take a nap, Momma!”

Going Home

And look at this beautiful little face.  Who couldn’t love a face like this?


And even Froggie wanted to get into the picture.

Josiah and Froggy

Grandma took the baby Fortner quilt with us.  We promised to show you pictures of the “finished” project once Mother and Son got to see it first, so here are the pictures.  It is a Paddington Bear “pot holder method” quilt; it’s called “pot holder method” because each block is sewed into a “mini” quilt and then joined together into one big quilt.

Another project that Grandma had worked on was making a mat for the toy bars.  Here is the mat with the bars connected to it.  “Isn’t it great to have such a handy Grandmother, Josiah?  Think of all the fun you’ll have lying on that mat whacking the toys with your cute little fists.”


Today we’re planning another sightseeing outing so you’ll just have to tune in tomorrow to see what we found to see and do. 

In The Meantime, May God Bless  - - - - - - - - -
