not the baby anymore

Soon she won't be the baby anymore. She still needs her mama though. I love how cuddly she is...the most of all my children. Her big around the neck squeezes just melt my heart.We've seen her grow up so much just in the past few weeks...understanding our instructions and acting so big. She's doing better in the nursery at church...still crying when we drop her off, but settles down much sooner. This is one of her Christmas gifts I put together for her. A church nursery bag. She doesn't need such a big diaper bag anymore...just a place for a couple diapers, a drink and a few toys. No, I didn't make it. I found it at Hobby Lobby for 7.99 and with a 40 percent off coupon that took it down to a mere 4.79. I literally turned around in the same isle and spotted the embroidery letters that I easily ironed on. After ironing them on, I decided to stitch around them for extra durability. Then I looked online for a pattern and made a diapers and wipes holder to go inside. A couple of diapers and a wipes container tuck nicely inside and the pouch fits perfectly in her little church bag.Add a cup, a few toys and she's ready for church with her new big girl bag.

Beautiful baby Luca is growing up too fast! So sweet to read about her hugs and her responsiveness. I'm sure she will love baby brother too. The bag & its insert are too cute, Sherri.
