Alex's Cradle

My pop made a beautiful cradle for Alex {he gets to sleep in it during those rare occasions when we're willing to put him down!}.

I don't have the original source for Pin that inspired this cradle, but the execution was all Pop's. He cut and bent the sides making a little boat for Alex to dream in, and cut little anchors out of the rockers ::

The cradle is truly a work of art {I know my sub-par photos are not doing it justice}, and it's going to be so much fun to see it passed from grandchild to grandchild and photographed through the years as our family grows! Speaking of growing, on the left is Alex the day we brought him home from the hospital and on the right is a photo taken just yesterday ::

I'm really going to make an effort to get back to some regular blogging. We've had quite a few family visits, and we've been doing a whole lot of this ::

Which leads to silly photos like this ::

And this ::

But I can't wait to post some garden updates, and there are a few more handmade gifts to share!
