Happy Holidays!

I realize I am extremely late doing the mandatory "how our Christmas went" post. Sorry.

Little Button is going to be one spoiled little baby.  She got some Cardinals oneies, some more oneies, some bibs, a cloth book, a sock monkey, gift cards, and a Cardinals receiving blanket.  I'm sure I'm forgetting something too.

I guess in general, Christmas went better than usual.  We didn't play the whole, let's go to every party we are invited to.  We even took some naps last weekend.

Monday mom and I went to the fabric store and between the two of us, we got enough material to make Button about 7 flannel blankets.  I realize kids puke and poop on stuff but really, will she really need a different one for each day of the week?

Tuesday, I got her crib, dresser, and bookshelf ordered.  It should be here sometime soon.  Then, I'll get Matt busy putting it together.  I also ordered a wall decal for her room.

We haven't really thought too much about names yet.  We only found out she was a girl on last Thursday and then we were busy with Christmas and then it was back to work.  I might keep that a secret anyway.

She still moves around a ton and I love it.  Not a day goes by that I am not thankful for her. 

I got my mom's Etsy shop started.  We still have to get a bunch of stuff added but you can check it out here  Make sure to check back to see what else will be added.

Hope you all have a fantastic New Year!

Emma has about 56 blankets. Ok, maybe like 20 so I'm thinking 7 is a great number (but people will give you some as gifts).

You got that poor baby girl some Cardinal stuff? Oh no. I KID, I KID.

I hope you had a great Christmas and New Years. My in laws are still in town making blogging impossible!

Has your mom ever made crib bedding? Her blankets now are such decent priced(way better than other places I've found)..maybe you could talk her into trying it...and if she could make a bumper/crib skirt/quilt I'd totally have her make my crib bedding if I could send her ideas!
