Lovely Day For A Kickabout

There are lots of things in a day that Little Treasures enjoys...food, sleeping, cuddles, looking at lights and 'chatting', to name just a handful. However, one of her very favourite pastimes is kicking about on her quilt.

Her arms and legs move at an astonishing rate, accompanied by her happy gurgles and coos.

I found the quilt in a charity on my travels just before Little Treasure arrived. I was drawn to the lovely pink vintage fabrics, especially because I knew I was expecting a girl!

What made me think "I have to buy this quilt" was when I noticed the pink and white squares of this Laura Ashley fabric. Laura Ashley was the decor of my childhood years - my parents had the fabrics and wallpapers in just about every room in our house! They bring back such happy memories.

I hope Little Treasure will grow up to love the fabrics she's surrounded by and forge her own happy memories of her childhood...

...as well as discover all sorts of interests and passions of her own.

Ooh, those lovely, dreamy days of just watching the baby kick around on her blanket, chattering away to the tree shadows on the ceiling - nearly 13 years on, I do miss them!

Yes this brings back memories for me too and in two weeks time I'm expecting my first grandchild (goodness!). Your little one certainly looks happy on her quilt- such pretty, muted colours.

That's a lovely quilt she's having all that fun on. I had curtains in the pink and white Laura Ashley fabric when I was about 12!

I've been following your blog for a long time, and just love it. We are expecting a sweet baby girl in early July-my 3rd grandchild-and this makes me yearn to hold her!

Oh just look at that little bundle of gorgeousness and Joy !!!
Give her a cuddle and squeeze from me - can't wait to have proper cuddles!
Lots of love to you all,

There is something utterly scrumptious about those little fingers and toes and I remember so well my son's little legs kicking .. but when he was in my tummy!

Belated congratulations. Just popping round on a blog visit and see what a lovely arrival you've had. Like the other ladies I felt all sentimental remembering the days of silky soft hair on my girls baby heads and always rubbing my face in it. Babies just smell so right don't they. How lovely for her to have a quilt that brings back memories for you too.
