A dear friend of mine is due to have her first baby in July. We had a surprise baby shower for her yesterday. The little ladies and I gave her a basketful of homemade gifts.
I also made the baby an owl that makes a crinkly sound when squeezed.
My sister Katrina made her some beautiful homemade books. One book full of parental wisdom (filled out by the shower guests) and one book to write dreams and wishes for the babe.
My mom got creative with her gift by making this baby out of burp cloths, onesies and a little cap. Then she placed the cloth babe in a Boppy sling. It was very hard for the mama to be to take this babe apart!
The little ladies had cupcake duty. They gathered violets, clovers and mint then gently placed each flower onto a cupcake. They were so proud of the finished product (and themselves).
The sun for warmth and light (draw the sun),
And a hug and kiss goodnight (give a hug and kiss).
This one LOVES her fruit! The poor little thing was so confused about what exactly a baby shower was. She was a little afraid that the baby might be born at the shower and we would all bathe it. She’s pretty sure she’s not ready for that kind of womanhood!
