Auntie Kimmy Rocks.

Yesterday we found a pleasant surprise gift box waiting for us on the front porch. Our good friend Kimmy, who moved back to Kansas a year or so ago, made a BEEEEEE-UTIFUL quilt for baby Callum. It really is magnificent - and given Jon and I are both quilt lovers, it couldn't be a more perfect gift. THANK YOU KIMMY!!

Callum loved it (he immediately took a nice long nap snuggled up in it, after this photo shoot).

It's so fucking awesome, I couldn't stop taking pictures of it. And check out the back! You guys. LOOK. AT. THE. BACK. (or is it the front?) ;-)

It was meant for a linguist like me.

Callum's ready for his nap now Mom.

And, if that's not enough to choke you up, she made a wonderful tribute to Lola, writing her name on the quilt since Callum won't ever get to know her special crazy.

Like I said. Auntie Kimmy Rocks.
