Thanksgiving has come and we have enjoyed a wonderful time with our families. My favorite part of the meal, besides turkey, is when we take our turn and express what we are most thankful for. This year, again, I’m most grateful for my wonderful grandchildren, all twelve of them, from 2 months to 19 years, they are all precious to me.

I’m also grateful for the chance we have to serve all of our customers and provide a way for them to express their love for their loved ones. In 2014 we will be celebrating our 6th year in business. It has been a lot of work, but mostly, we are happy our blankets have kept thousands of babies warm and cozy.

And to show our gratitude for you, our faithful customers, we will have a Black Friday Sale! How does 40% off your order sound? Tomorrow only, all day, use coupon code THANKS at time of check out. Does not apply to Edgit products or clearance items.

Ammee's and the Edgit Piercing & Crochet Hooks

We have to admit that we cheated on this baby quilt, we actually didn’t quilt it…but we did crochet on the edge of it! This is a purchased baby quilt, we cut away the binding, zigzag around the edge to prevent fabric from raveling while we crochet on the edge, then we just edged it with the Edgit!

Ammee's and the Edgit Piercing & Crochet HooksThis playful dress will be ideal for Spring 2014, we know is a bit early for that, so how about working this adorable lattice edging on any holiday dress, cardigan, or use it on a gift too!

How to dress a newborn in the spring and summer
The spring and summer months often translate to outdoor time with family gatherings, walks, and other events. Your new born requires more than a keen sense of baby fashion. Your baby’s safety and health play a role in the clothing you choose in this spring/summer.

Summer heat may lead to overheating if she is wearing too many clothes. Make sure to protect her skin from direct sun’s rays to avoid sunburn and skin damage. Keep your newborn happy with layers of cool clothing.

Here are some easy steps to follow:
Step 1
Start with a base layer of a cotton onesie. Choose light colors.

Step 2
If necessary, add a pair of shorts or lightweight pants, this will still allow your baby’s legs to stay cool, even if you go outdoors.

Step 3
If your baby is indoors, add more layers, a lightweight sleeper or long sleeved shirt if he is indoors in a cool, air-conditioned room. Feel his hands and feet to make sure they aren’t cold, add socks if you’re planning on staying indoors.

Step 4
Apply sunscreen each time you go outside. Keep a blanket handy to protect your baby from the sun.

Step 5
Cover your newborn’s head with a hat the entire time you are outside.

Step 6
Dress your newborn in pajamas appropriate for the room’s air conditioned temperature. Swaddle her in a lightweight blanket if the room is cool from air conditioning. Dress her in a lighter sleeper if your home is warm during the summer.

This Spring and Summer try our Stay Cool Light Weight Flannel Blankets, same quality, softness, and designer patterns ready for your spring and summer baby! Hooty Hoot and Tiny Chevrons by Doodle Bug Design will keep your baby comfortable all day long!
