Valuable Valentine

DD1 was my biggest and best Valentine ever! (9 lbs 12 oz- imagine if you can…Very valuable!!   Almost 10 lbs. of pure sugar!!)   Also known as Baby Strawberry Giant.

Crystal in yellow heart handmade dress

Her first heart outfit, that I made.

 

All natural birth with NO drugs!  (Until the numbing shot when the midwife was sewing me up!  That shot hurt worse than the sewing!  I refused the next one, and said “Just git ‘er dun!”)

I’m so thankful for my baby girls, both of them! They are my treasures.   DD1 is my Valentine baby, and DD2 is my Washington’s Birthday present to myself!

When they were little, I had the tradition of sewing them matching Valentine-Birthday outfits.   Poor DD2, she never got a Washington’s BD outfit!   (What would THAT look like?? A tree with an axe at the root??)   She always had to have hearts.   And, of course since their birthdays are only 8 days apart, they had to share birthday parties too.   And you can guess what the theme was- every year!!

Here’s one of DD2, also known as Newborn Strawberry Giant:

Here’s DD2! DD1 is holding her.

 

(This taking pix of pix with my phone is horrible!   Now, I not only need a REAL camera, but I need a scanner too!!!)

 

 

Why can’t I find a pic of both of them in an outfit I sewed???            (Ummmm, can’t be because I haven’t organized my pix yet!)

Oh wait, here’s one!    Not a great pic at all!!   But, they’re both in it, wearing their dresses for that year!    I’ll take it!

I love you DD1!   Happy Valentine’s Birthday!

And Happy Valentine’s Day, and Happy Birthday, DD2!   I love you!
