The Final Note re: Grandmother’s Gift

Posted on: October 25, 2009

Grandmother's NightieJust to finish up re: my grandmother’s gift. As I said, the outpouring of support from my friends and family since the birth of Niko has been amazing! This week I received a letter in the mail from my 88 year old grandmother informing me of a gift that was coming that she had hand made.

She said in the letter (after apologizing profusely for the state of her handwriting, which I really have no trouble reading), that she had made a gift as she is not one for shopping, but that I probably wouldn’t use it and it would be too small by the time it reached Ottawa. That said, a couple of days later her parcel arrived, bound in brown paper and tied by my grandfather with string. Inside was a beautiful little nightie: made out of white flannel and hand smocked with blue and yellow stitching on both the neckline and cuffs. So adorable and looking like it came from another time! I love it, and Niko looks oh so cute in it: like a little angel.

My mom tip of the day: Stay hydrated! Drink one cup of water each time you breastfeed!
