oh babies...

My brother and SIL's baby boy is due at the end of this month and my bestie Laura's baby girl is due on Saturday!!  Everyone loves babies, especially precious newborns!! I can't wait to meet them both.  I wanted to share all the fun stuff I've been up to when it comes to both of these babes!

For Laura's baby girl this is the gift I will be bringing her...

Inside the basket on the bottom is a bunch of diapers, then i stacked the clothes, socks, little shoes, rubber ducky and then the diaper babies on top.  I have to say I really enjoyed shopping for a baby girl for a change ;)




I also have a Momma gift for Laura that includes her favorite candy, some fruit strips, a magazine, chapsticks, facewipes, face lotion, hand lotion and some chips (cool ranch doritos, we always go through a bag anytime we hang out, ha!)

I also made little gifts for both of the baby's big brothers! I gave them fruit snacks, little activity books and some cars to race around the hospital room.  There is more stuff in their bags I just can't remember what. One big brother bag for Dominic, big bro to Holden and one for Brody, big bro to his baby sis C (her name is a secret).  -I don't think Laura reads my blog, she is one busy Momma, that's why I posted the gift.

For baby Holden...

We threw the SIL's shower last weekend, her parents and my mom hosted, we brought a few items for decoration and dessert.  It was a fun shower with lots of yummy food.

 I made a balloon wreath and a diaper cake motorcycle.  Both items were fun and simple to make and both courtesy of pinterest!  I also made a mini candy bar and my mom brought cupcakes for the dessert table.

I can't wait to make a balloon wreath for Cullen's birthday!  The wreath only took me about 2 hours and I think I used around 350 balloons!  I want to make a bigger wreath for C's birthday, I can't imagine how many balloons it will take ;)  Here is Holden's wreath...


Only picture I have from the dessert table, one of the candy jars. Dominic and Holden's room is going to be jungle theme so I went with that for the table and my mom made jungle themed cupcakes.

That's all I've got for today!  Hope everyone is having a great week so far! :)
