A Little Lovey

We got some gorgeous newborn photos taken of Buck a few weeks ago, and while I’m anxiously awaiting those photos, I thought I’d share a few photos of my own that I took when he was about two and a half weeks old.

The blue blanket was made by my grandma, and the little teal, gray and white “lovey” blanket was made by Lauren Brown, of Daisy Cottage Designs. She specializes in the most adorable crocheted owl hats, and has recently branched out to make these little lovey blankets. They’re just big enough to tote around easily, and are so soft and durable (which is a major qualification at our house). I can’t wait for Buck to be old enough to drag it around, because won’t that be the cutest thing ever? Yes, it will.
