He has grown to be just exactly what I expected, extremely bright, gifted with just a dash of precociousness. He is such a good-natured little guy and he charms all he meets. He loves to sing and bend his family to his will.

Jack, the Scottish grandchild follows with his second birthday in April.
He is also quite advanced for his tender age. Look, if you think I am going to be even slightly restrained when it comes to my grandchildren, guess again.
Jack has the most wonderful sense of fun and a tiny flair for drama has been poking through. He is also showing signs of being a tidy and organised little child.
The thing I discovered when I became a mother myself is how ferociously you love your child. I discovered when the second child came along that love expands to fill the need. You don't love your first child less because a second one has showed up, your ability to love grows to encompass the new child. The genius thing is that it works over and over again. I have yet to run out!
This is brilliant because it is going to need to grow again!
There are loads of squares left over from this quilt and the two that I made before. It was suggested that I make a Nana's quilt out of these. That's a brilliant idea! I think I'll be making up the blocks soon! Here's the big question though. . . . when I do stop? If I complete it and then "surprise" another is on the way. . . this child's quilt will not be in the Nana quilt. I'll worry about that later. I have sewing to do.
