Some Sweet Gifts


Over the last couple of years, I have been very blessed by the friendships I've made in blog land and email. Such loving women there are out there...and yet we've never met in person!

About two weeks ago, I was very much reminded of such blessings when my sweet friend, Sarah, sent out some lovely homemade gifts for my wee girlie:-) I thought I'd share these sweet things with you all here:-)

As you can see above, there is quite an assortment of gifts here. Firstly, lets just say "aaaah" as we gaze on these adorable little elephant goodies! On the left is a lovely, soft, silky toy elephant...sweet and with no little buttons that baby may, um, eat. And on the right is a wonderful bib. It is a nice sized bib that will be usable when wee girlie is bigger(as well as when wee) and look at that darling elephant in the middle! There is lovely hand stitching done around the elephant and I am sure it will be painful to use it the first time with a little messy baby! Perhaps I should just frame it?!


Next is a beautiful little dress with panties! I just love this dress...the fabric, the trim! Just lovely!


And for me:-) Handmade, washable nursing pads! On the back side is a soft, blue flannel(I think) and on the front Sarah used fabrics from the items she made my wee girlie, with a bit of trim down the center:-) These are great and I look forward to trying them out. Now if I could just figure out how she made them...I'd make some more:-)


This was truly a sweet gift and I am very touched that I received them! Thank you ever so much Sarah!

While I'm here, I guess I ought to give a little update:-) I am just a little over a week away from my delivery date(I am having a c-section) and things are falling into place quite nicely. I am doing well and so is my wee girlie. Though, I found out Friday(okay, I already suspected this!) that my wee girlie isn't so very wee. At 37 weeks she is already a whopping 9.5 lbs according to the ultrasound technician! There go any tiny outfits that once fit my small daughters(8lb 12oz and 7lb 12oz..)! Liam was 9lb 11oz when he was born and I do believe his "little" sister is going to out do him here:-o

I am having some carpal tunnel, but otherwise I have felt pretty good. Today the crib got put back together and I organized the diaper table. Now I just need to wash up the clothes and such and pack my bag(whaaaat!) and all the necessaries should be done :-) Yippee!!!

I do hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. May the Lord bless you and have a great Lord's Day!

Blessings,
Sommer

I'll be praying for you this week. I remember that last week does seem long. Before you know it, your wee girl will be in your arms.

What sweet gifts! That dress is ever so darling.

I'll be praying for you, too! God bless and keep you and the little one!

How sweet! Those elephants are sooo cute! And perhaps we should ask Sarah to do a tutorial for the nursing pads? They are just lovely! I'm afraid your package will not be quite ready in time for the baby...but hopefully not too late!!
Much love,
Tilly

I am so glad to hear you are doing well! I've been popping in quite often, hoping for an update on you and your little one! Wow, a little over a week to go! I'm so excited for you! My littlest sister also a big baby, and she got stuck on the way out. Thankfully with a c-section you don't have to worry abou that! :)

I used this tutorial for the nursing pads. They were such fun to make! http://www.pamperedcheeks.com/nursing_pads_pattern.htm

God Bless! I will be praying for you very often as your time draws near!
