Getting ready for baby

It won't be long and I'll be able to hold my sweet bundle of joy in my arms. In the meantime, it seems as though I have a million things left to do to get ready. But, thanks to some loving friends and family, I've had some help.

For instance, I had my baby shower last weekend, where I received many of the items I still needed to care for my little one (thanks everyone). And, to make it extra special, some of the attendees also personalized a few of these necessities (specifically onesies and burp cloths/blankets) for Hayden.

As you can see in these pics, she is going to look very artistic, like a little work of art.

Jacob is especially proud of his creations, like the very colorful "Baby" onesie and the one with the giraffe on the front (he had purchased her a stuffed giraffe a couple months ago on his school field trip to the Smithsonian). He just had to share them with all of you.

During the week, he also insisted we paint a couple more onesies for his sister. He came up with the "This is my heart" design, and added another surprise heart on her bottom.

He inspired me to paint a vine-like pattern across the back of the onesie I was working on, as well. Hoping that she'll take after me, I decided to write "Natural Born Veggie Connoisseur" across the front.

I feel like I've already given her a good start. We'll just have to wait and see if she still craves her veggies once she's out.
