Baby Shower and a New Friend

Recently, we had a baby shower for my sister-in-law.  We are so excited to be adding another girl to our team.  That will make the score a tie for my side of the family when their baby girl arrives…  Boys 2  - Girls 2.

If I was a betting person, I’d say that score won’t last for long. 

shower-1

 

Isn’t it amazing how much stuff a (probably eight pound) newborn needs?

I always wonder how the pioneer women survived without all this.

shower-2

No Boppy.

No Bjorn.

No Bumbo.

No way!

 

Could someone please take a look at this precious outfit for me?

Shower-3

And these tiny leopard shoes?

I just can’t look.

Shower-6

‘Cause I want more babies.  I can’t even handle what I already have, but I want more.  MORE I tell you!

 

You know, one of the most fun things about the shower (you know besides getting a niece out of the deal) was the fact that I got to make a new friend in the process.  Amanda baked, decorated and shipped her beautiful cookies all the way across the United States in time for the party.  She has a heart of gold and is so very talented.  Shower-7

Not only were her cookies so cute, they tasted like heaven.  In fact, I saw a couple of ladies at the shower put them in their purses!

Shower-8

So thank you, friend, for blessing my family and me with your beautiful confections.  They were the pièce de résistance!

Ok, the leopard shoes? Tooo MUCH! And Amanda is amazing- I want to work up the courage to tackle her Rainbow Cake. (And the skill to do that lettering!)
Congrats to the mommy-to-be and all of you in the family on the impending blessing!

Amanda said...

Ok, can I just say that the baby clothes hanging up... Brilliant!! SO cute! And the ruffle pink onsie... WOW! Where do your fabulous friends and family shop?? Looks like a wonderful day!!

Thank you for letting me help out... I was so tickled you even considered getting cookies from some SAHM off in chilly Minnesota! :)

You are such a sweet friend!

Blessings-
Amanda

Oh wow - those cookies!! That ruffly onesie is the cutest, sweetest thing I have seen in a long while. Oh, how I am ready for another baby in our home!

Hannah said...

You are killing me with baby stuff and cookies. Killing me! I want another baby so bad...another little girl. I can't really handle what I have now but I want more (MORE!!)

Now, please look away while I lick that cookie through the monitor.

Do it!! You need another baby girl! Seriously, DO IT!!! Oh baby girl stuff is so irresistible! Just had a shower for my sis (getting ready to blog about it!) and she is having a boy. Boy stuff is still fun, but seriously, there were no leopard shoes at our party!! ;)

I want another baby girl too.... hmmmm?!!!

Seriously, how can you not be addicted to buying baby girl clothes. I have a seven-month old and adore buying clothes for her.

I love the leopard shoes!!

Amanda said...

The baby shower looked like so much fun, with such cute clothes. I think we need a baby girl. The cookies look delicious.
Thanks for reading my blog. The boys are so much fun. It's hard to picture them older.
