A Yellow Baby Blanket

The other day at my parents' house my mom took me to her room to show me something.  I was surprised and moved to see she had bought a whole bunch of light yellow yarn and was working on knitting...a baby blanket...for me.  It is so touching to know that other people are thinking of our future child and believe that we will have a baby one day.  Thank-you, Mom.  It is beautiful and you are so sweet.
