A Surprise for Seth

Seth loves laying on his new quilt!
We had a special surprise for Seth today. Randy does some tutoring for one of his ex-students. She's a seventh grader now, so they've been working together for 4 years, and they've grown pretty close.

Unbeknownst to us, she chose to do one of her Personal Progress Projects for Seth. She started before Seth was even born, and worked very hard. Yesterday, as Randy left her house after a tutoring session, her mom asked if they could drop by and meet Seth-- they had a little gift for him.

Jennie and Seth
When they showed up, the gift wasn't little at all. It is a beautifully quilted baby blanket that took months to make. It is blue, red, and tan and wonderfully soft. It features trains and trucks-- both family favorites. There is an "inscription" stitched in the corner: For Seth Love Jennie. Seth was all eyes and stared at the blanket appreciatively (at least it seemed to me). Seth has received many thoughtful gifts in his few months here on Earth, but this one seemed particularly heartfelt because of the time, planning and love with which it was prepared.

Seth loved Jennie' mom. He was laughing at her crazy hair---well, that's what she said! :)

Seth laid on this blanket a lot today and was happy every minute of it.
