A Blast from the Past~

About a week or so ago, Jill sent us a photo of Sophia wearing a coat that had been made by my mother for Jill many years ago. If Mom only knew how much her great-granddaughter loves it; she even woke up one night and asked for it! (Not only is she wearing the coat, she's also wearing slippers I made for her ages ago and holding Jill's heart sachet.)
This is the only photo I could find of Jill wearing the same little coat. Do you think there's a resemblance?

And here is Jill about two weeks ago with the Sophia and David on National Train Day. Can you believe she's due any time now?
Mama Jill some years later!

Isn't it sweet when you can reminisce those special moments. They both look so cute in the hat and coat. Wishing Jill a smooth delivery and healthy baby. I can imagine you are anxious. Have fun visiting your adorable grandchildren.

Hi Judy
I have some clothes, my Grandma for my children had also still worked…
it am a marvelous memory.
Sophia looks very good in the beautiful coat.
One cannot believes, how much time lies between the pictures.
Take care
