This is my favorite picture. Martae is so excited to be a dad. I just love the smile on his face! He really enjoyed all the clothes, books and baby stuff they received. My mom and I went together and bought their crib, though I need to get a mattress still! Because we're weirdos, the car seat I had for Mia is still plenty new, and has the kind of handle Rachel likes, so she gets that. I'm going to be doctoring up the cover today, so the colors match hers.
This is my Mother in Law. I was so happy she was able to come, her health has not been the best and she has been mostly housebound for quite a while. Without going into weird family details, that is my nephew behind her, and that is the first time they've gotten to meet! That is my oldest kid on the couch, Scott.
These are a couple of the baby related projects I'd (almost) finished, and used for the party. The fabric ones are still a little loosey-goosey because we've managed to misplace my staple gun. The baby's room is being done in lavendar, gray, and white, with jungle animals. I have a bunting that I was attaching to bias tape when Rachel pointed out my timing error, so it got thrown into my bedroom! I'll finish that today, too. I've got to get all these baby things done for her, though she's realizing the baby really won't be in her room much for a while. I really would like them done so I can move onto holiday fun projects! I'm already pushing that, time-wise, as it is!! Good grief, every year seems to fly faster than the year before. I'm so excited for my daughter, that first baby is such a sweet time, she'll get to be a mommy this Christmas!
