Shower Invites!

These are the baby shower invites that my mom and me made for Mia's upcoming baby shower. The baby shower is coming up on September 6th, so we've been spending a lot of time preparing everything for that day. I'm really looking forward to it, hopefully I didn't forget anyone on the invite list. It's going to be a fun day and I can't wait to eat the Cupcakes that Cindy is making for the party. I got to sample them this week and they were so delicious!

Max Takes Over the World...

My mom bought a bassinet this week so Mia would have a place to sleep away from home. But apparently, Fat Max decided to take it over until she arrives. All of the cats ove there are curious about what's going on. But Max seems to be the most curious and interested. He loves to sleep on baby clothes (which he's laying on in the picture) and to sleep on baby blankets. I'm assuming he'll be the protector of the baby since he is afterall the king of the house.

I guess he's counting down the days until she arrives as well. I still can't believe that her arrival is only 2 months away from now. We can't wait to have her here for the holidays. I guess this year we will have to get a real tree and stockings since Santa will be making an arrival.

We can't help to wonder what she's going to be like. Ryan and I have been talking about it a lot this past week. We are curious to see which of our personality traits she'll have and which ones she won't have and which ones will be hers alone.

A Lovely Surprise Gift!

Earlier in the week, I was surprised with this beautiful quilt by Ryan's Sister's Best Friend. She apparently makes quilts for all the babies born into Ryan's family. All the quilts she has made for his family are amazing. What makes this quilt even more special for Ryan is that it was his late Grandmother who taught her how to quilt.

I was really happy to receive this quilt for Mia. It's really beautiful, too beautiful to use. I love how she used vintage linens and embroideries as well and added them in. The center of the quilt has a beautiful piece of what looks like a fancy vintage table cloth. And best of all, it was done in Pinks and it was shabby chic. It's exactly what I would have picked.

The quilt is going to make a perfect keepsake and I hope someday Mia will pass it down to her children.

This is the Thank You card I made for her for making me the quilt. I've made several baby cards this last week using vintage
Bingo cards. I love using them for hanging cards. I hope she likes the card I made for her.
