Box Full of Baby Goodies
The baby shower for Harper was yesterday. She had a great turn out of family to celebrate the anticipation of her birth sometime in June. She is going to be the best dressed baby girl in town! Christa was absolutely glowing with pride and excitement!
I have had so much fun getting ready for Baby Harper! Although she is not my first grandchild (not by a long shot!) she is the first one to be born since I have taken up sewing again, I had forgotten how much I enjoyed sewing for children! I made a few things last summer for my grand-daughters and plan to make a lot more, but it has really been fun getting ready for a newborn!
Packing the box for the shower gift was so much fun, I had bought a few things, a book of lullabies with the cd to match, the wireless video baby monitor they wanted, a couple of wrist rattlers, two door hangers one that says, "shh, mommy is napping" and one that says, "quiet, the princess is sleeping", and a set of small snack keepers.
To these things I added the items that were made by Nana for my special little one! The first thing was the turtle blankie I made and blogged about in my post Quick and Easy Baby Blanket.
Next was a Turquoise Minky blanket I made with a satin border. It is so soft and cuddly, I almost wanted to keep it! LOL
Next was the white with pink border blankie I made. It is a very light weight cotton (Ballard Bliss) for those summer days and nights when she will need a little something, but a regular blankie would be too warm.
Last, was the little top and bloomers set I blogged about on my post Dress for Baby Harper. It is so darling! It was a big hit at the shower!
I covered it all with a piece of tissue, placed the card on top and put the lid on the box.
I had wrapped the box and lid separately, which made for easy opening and closing.
What a great Saturday it was!
I have so many more ideas for things I am going to make for Harper! Believe me, you will be seeing more!
