Cradle Will Rock

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

My sister hosted our baby shower 2 Sundays ago and worked her tail off doing it, but what I love about my family, is that everyone pitched in! The watermelon baby was my dad's handywork. He's one of those types who can look at anything and make it whether it's furniture or a fruit baby! My mom found the idea on Pinterest of course, where else? Then my sister put together a useful craft, a diaper cake with a monkey plush topper...
Like I said, the top is a super soft little stuffed animal, then the flowers are all hair bows, the layers are supported by rolled up burp cloths and the ribbon wrapper around each layer, I'm going to use on a gown that I'll monogram for her.

And not to be outdone, my husband made Caroline the cradle you see! Who knew how crafty a baby could make everyone feel! It still has to be stained a pecan color that we decided on, then we're going to get a brushed nickel plaque with Caroline's name and date of birth engraved on it. Hopefully, she'll use this cradle for her children and pass it down through the generations like the crib we're using for her has been.  The adults weren't the only ones showing off their talents though!

 The Pooh blanket inside the crib was sewn together by my 9-year-old niece. Pooh is her favorite and she was SO proud of this blanket. I can't wait for her to get to hold Caroline all wrapped up in it!

I've been working non-stop on getting all my thank you notes written and sent out from the shower so that everyone will know how very appreciative we are that they took time to think of us during such a special time. It's an honor to get to share a part of it with each person that came. Our cup runneth over...
