baby showers {and accessory question!}

The soon to be first time grandma!
It blows my mind how people take the time to make these adorable diaper cakes! So nice!
We all know how I love me some ruffle bums!! 
My grandma, soon to be first time great grandma, sewed baby girl's first quilt!

I know, I know.... this is like the 5th baby post in a row (but I can't be sure, and I'm not going back to count because I'm already typing with one hand and holding my beloved hot chocolate in the other.... ha!) but I'm not sorry! Baby girl is what's on my mind lately, so that's what I'm talkin' about :)
I just have to say that I am blessed with incredible friends and family!! Don't ask me how I got so lucky... It's been SO fun to see everyone be so excited about baby girl! Good heck, she is one spoiled baby already. And she has way cuter clothes than I do! But she deserves it :) (And so do I, Eric. Once I can buy normal clothes again... right? I deserve cute clothes again, RIGHT?!) 
It just makes our hearts so full to see how people are so giving to our baby, and how much love they have for our tiny family. Eric and I could not be more grateful!! So thank you to our amazing friends and family! (And don't worry my blog friends.... you guys have made me cry more than once.... but you get your own post!) 
And just in case you're wondering... I wrap every single gift back up so that Eric can reopen them. Sounds silly but he LOVES it! And I love watching his reaction every time. He already melts and baby girl ain't even here yet :)

P.S. Can you tell as the weeks go by that my hair gets slicked back a bit tighter each time? Yeah... I'm about ready to shave it off and shred all of my clothes. That's where my irritability level is at these days :)
P.P.S. Baby girl needs headbands and bows! LOTS of them... ha ha. I'm on the hunt for skinny headbands in every color but I have to do all of my shopping online because our tiny town sucks and has no shopping options. What are your favorite stores/etsy shops for headbands and bows? I need specifics because I'm the worst online shopper ever!

Bloomie's Handmade has some super cute stuff, and it's pretty reasonable prices. She's having a giveaway on instagram right now, too. @bloomieshandmade

Ashley said...

Now you know I have no advice about headbands/bows because I'm a boy mom, BUT if I ever have a girl, she WILL have those ruffle bum onesies!!

My grandma made Charlie and Walker a blanket. I love them so much!!

Chelsea said...
