Just thought I’d pop in for a quick Hi and to share a few pictures from a couple of baby showers. Joel’s sisters and Mom threw a shower a few weeks ago for me. I just had to show you the cake that they had made. Look closely and you will see some feet and a little green bum.
Now check out the side version and you see it’s a little baby hiding under a quilt. It’s that the cutest thing? The quilt design was fashion after the argyle that I did in Carter’s room. Remember?
The shower was outside, where we took a 4 generation picture with Joel’s Mom and 98-year-old Grandma! 98 – Isn’t that amazing?
We received lots of great gifts – including some hand-made items from Joel’s sister. She made a “hooter hider” and “peepee tepees” for me. I was surprised at how many of the people didn’t know what a hooter hider was! I will admit that I had never seen peepee tepees, but I now had 18 of them to help cut down on the occasion showers that happen while changing Carter’s diaper.
My Mom’s sisters threw a shower for me last Friday and there were two more great cakes (both made by my Aunt Sheri – Thanks Aunti She-She!).
The first was a chocolate truffle cake, cut and decorated to look like a baby buggy. Too Cute!
The second was this great diaper cake, loaded with fun things for Carter. It makes for an adorable center piece at the shower, yet practical because I get to take it home and use everything in it (unlike flowers that only last a few days).
Carter is now 7 weeks old and growing like a weed! He is weighing in at 14 pounds and has grown 3″ in length. As you can see, he is quite a bit bigger than the last time you saw him!
Over the last week he is getting on more of a sleeping schedule (knock on wood) and getting so much more interactive. I love all the smiles and coos we are getting.
I even love his cute scowls!
I also love all the great people in our lives and the wonderful gifts that have been given to us over the last two months! It has been quite overwhelming !! Carter says Thanks!!!!
I better get back to my baby and my sewing – which is now a little more possible thanks to this shower gift – it’s called the Moby wrap. It keeps my hands free to work, Carter seems to like it, and it usually results in a nice nap!
