Mommy's friends from work had a baby shower for her on 9/29, hosted by her good friend Julie. The guests all had to guess what kind of baby food was in four jars by smelling and eating the food. Mommy declined to participate in that game, due to concern that she may throw up all the good food she had just eaten! How does she expect me to eat that food later if she can't even do it?! Julie made mommy a "diaper cake" out of cloth diapers, pins, Snappis (alternative to using pins), burp cloths made by her mother, washclothes, and socks. She also knitted me a blanket that matches my room...Julie is getting pretty crafty : ) I also got lots of other great things, including lots of clothing items and a floor gym. Each person also got me a book to add to my collection. She also got a couple gift cards that she is going to use to help buy me a swing! Thanks to everyone that came or sent a gift for me!
Mommy had a great time at the baby shower that three of her friends (Sarah, Katie, and Jen) hosted for her on 9/22! And, she got lots of GREAT things for me : ) Thanks to everyone that came or sent gifts...mommy and I both appreciate it greatly!
Mommy had some diapers made for me that will fit when I am first born. She even had one done in race car fabric! The woman who made them for me even made me a diaper cover with a stamp on the butt for FREE. Mommy is so excited to be able to use them!!
Grandma and Grandpa Bryant helped mommy finish putting together the changing table/dresser and hanging the valences. Mommy also put together my bookcase and put some of her childhood books, new books from both the grandparents, and a few toys on the shelves. Grandma and Grandpa Bryant also found the fun piggy bank. The nursery is almost complete...all that's left is the wall art and the glider!
Grandma and Grandpa Bryant came down to celebrate mommy's birthday and see me in 3D!! They were able to see me yawn, swallow, "smile", frown, stretch, give the thumbs up, and even "pick my nose". You could even count all of my fingers and toes. They were also excited to see that I was still a girl!!
Grandma and Grandpa O'Neill have been hard at work making the wall art for my room. So far they have done the wings of a large ladybug, a couple small ladybugs, and two butterflies! See how gorgeous they look?!!
