Everything’s Better With Three Right?!

Three babies, that is. Dominic and Addison are getting a sibling in 2021 and we had a small gender reveal party recently.

The reveal party was rather sophisticated as we had to pick our Team-sticker and it was videotaped to avoid someone from later changing their selection. Yes, it has happened before to our amusement. While I had been guessing “girl” all along, just days before I switched to Team Boy. In the end, that was correct.

Cute Ways to Announce Three

Daddy and Dominic were bound and determine to crack open the basketball for the reveal. After three attempts, Addison stepped up and cracked that open like it was an egg!

She started clapping right away – she doesn’t mind having another brother!

Another way Andrea made an announcement was with the use of glow sticks inside the three carved pumpkins! Baby J – Addison – Dominic – what a clever idea.

Time For Another Quilt

Since we’ve designed and made a special quilt for both Dominic and Addison, it was time to come up with an idea for this baby, too. We have been given pretty much card blanche and we’re leaning toward a lion. Dominic has Ellie, the elephant and Addison a giraffe named George, so we thought we’d stick with the wild animal theme.

Here is the image we’re going to base Lynn, the Lion on including the cute drum to add some additional colors into the quilt. We’ll use turned appliquéd pieces so that they can withstand the multiple and frequent washings we know it will face. Since baby number three isn’t due until early March, we’ll add this to our first-quarter list for 2021.

Join us each Tuesday for our hosted linky party called To-Do Tuesday.  Check our sidebar or our Linky Parties page on our website for more quilting fun.  Like/follow us on our Facebook page to share the photos of what you’re working on.  We would love to see them!

    Congratulations on another boy!!! How fun!!
    However, I think you need to re-name the lion … perhaps Leo? Plus, with that mane, it’s a male lion!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

      Hi Gail! I agree, but Dominic had Ellie the elephant and Addison had George the giraffe. The new baby has to have a gender-challenged Lucy the lion. They can correct us when they realize our faus pas!

  5. Oh I’m sure the Aunties are thrilled with the news! Another sweet little and a boy! What fun. That Lion will be a beauty. Looking forward to the progress on this one
