I was so touched that my daughter chose to give him her uncle's middle name. Paul passed away in 2013 with brain cancer. She spent lots of fun times there and I'm glad she will remember them always.
I had a lot of fun creating the Kingdom set my daughter had chosen for her layette and to see Derek all wrapped up is a feeling I cannot describe. The nursing staff at the hospital was so kind with all the compliments and even made the rounds with Derek to show him off. lol I love crochet!
Here are a few pictures of Derek in his Little Prince Cocoon. I can't wait to get the hospital pictures she had taken. :)
My grandson Aaron, who rarely wears a hat, told me he needed a crown like baby brother Derek. I was very surprised by this so, even though I should have been working on orders, I did the only thing a good Mamaw could do, I made some pattern adjustments and hooked him one. He put it on, gave me a big hug and told me that now he can be the Big King and baby Derek can be the Little King. LOL I love my grandbabies!!!
Here they are in their matching hats :)
