Tuesday was Abby's birthday and Thomas, who has been dying to hear her say "Thank you," decided giving her a birthday present might be the way to get her utter this most-desired phrase. So with the help of my Mom, we made her a big pink pillow.
It's made of fleece and about 14-inches square. Mom did the embroidery (or rather her machine did, under her direction). Abby loved it and did indeed say "Thanks," and she wrote us a darling thank you note.
