Shower goodies!

Well, Saturday was my baby shower, and it was so much fun! The food was great, the cake was delicious (thanks to my sis for making the cake!), and the gifts...well, wow!!! Here is a picture of the cake, and some pics of the loot that lil bean made out with!

The "big" cake

My own personal cake

The loot - unorganized

Newborn clothes

0-3/3 Month clothes ( feet - complete with bleach stain on my right foot LOL)

6-9 Month clothes

The bath goodies (LOVE the little bath robe!!!)

Swaddling blankets

Fuzzy blankets

Toys, memory book, other items

Today, we went and bought our travel system since we had decided to wait until the shower to see what we got furniture/safety-wise. Well, as you can see, we got no furniture...and no travel system (stroller and car seat). SO! Here's our new travel system! I like it!

The car seat

The whole shebang

Right now, it seems like the car seat is a little too upright for a newborn, but we'll see! It's gotten wonderful reviews, and I really like the design. It handles well, and I love how the canopies completely overlap at the top.

Now, we are officially into single digits!!! 9 weeks (hopefully) to go until we will have the bouncing bean in our arms! We're sooooooooo anxious and excited!!!

How fantastic for the little one!!!

Oh, may I inquire as to how the blanket is coming along that I saw from an earlier posting? I like the colors you picked!

Peanut Publications said..., that blanket LOL I'm still working on it. I'm going to start taking it to work with me so I can try to make some progress while I'm on lunch. I think I have 10 or 11 squares done, and I'm REALLY starting to run out of time!!! Hopefully, I'll be able to post an update on that soon. I can't wait to get started on the green blocks!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
