A Baby is Coming…

by Meg on April 9, 2011

Oh yes- a baby is coming to the ‘S’ family and we are all very excited about it!

I was asked to make a fruit salad for Hilde’s Shower- and since it’s not truly ‘fruit’ season I did the best I could with what was fresh and from USA: cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries and blackberries! It turned out pretty well!

I decided to get a couple things for the mummy to be – a sling, cloth diaper and wipes, and a receiving blanket.

So many of Hilde’s friends/family made her homemade gifts from a sweater with an eggplant, to a tomato hat ,receiving blankets hand stitched with the insignia from our summer place, hand dyed and decorated onesies,  to a baby blanket knitted by the great-grandmother to be! The women at this party were  so multi-talented!

After Hilde opened her gifts -my friend Carrie and I decided to have a “July Brides” photo! We are getting married one week apart!

To celebrate our upcoming nuptials- Carrie had made me a mix cd. It has a great collection of wedding favorites including- Don’t Stop Believin’ – the one song I thought was most important for our band know how to play!

As shower gifts my cousin had made cds -each of the songs included the word baby- such a great idea!

What a wonderful afternoon with some amazing ladies!

Note: Sarah and I did make it to ‘George’ this morning before heading down to the shower. I think I’m going to be sore tomorrow Winking smile
