Welcome Baby!

The baby shower was a huge affair - gifts like you can't imagine! It was fun to see friends and relatives and to get to meet more of Anthony's family as well. But on to the goodies --

Here's what was in our welcome package.

















A Baby Quilt - going for the boyish look in chocolate and sea foam green.



I think the hand embroidery really added something, don't you?

Most of the design images are from a Nancy Halverson book, Whimsical Baby, I believe. I added the monkey and some of the words myself. :)


















I love the back almost as much as the front -- let me tell you, it was really hard to part with that fabric. Those classic images of puppies, kittens and bunnies are so adorable. It's a good thing I love you so much Lynz!

And a few useful items to round out the package.

Aunt Linda reminded Lyndsay that those burp cloths and wet wipes actually serve a purpose - babies aren't all coos and sweet smells! If you know Lynz, you will understand that she may not have realized that! Tee-hee.

I made some other goodies for my parents to gift. I'll show you those in another post, I don't want to overload you in one day!

Have a great one!
