I am so excited!!! My sister, who is in her early 40's, is going to have a baby girl at Christmas!!! She and her husband have been married for 15 years, and this is their FIRST child!!!
My mother, who is a quilter, immediately was envisioning the quilt she would be making for her new granddaughter. So she asked my sister what color the nursery would be... my sister replied, "What's a nursery?"
My sweet sister is all the way in California, across the country from me. I am also over 6 years removed from the new-baby phase of life. So I need help! I want to send her some recommendations of what she most needs when she brings her precious baby girl home. She has put off acquiring much, but I think the nesting instinct is kicking in. I know for me, there was a lot of baby gear that we just didn't need. And, of course, things we couldn't live without for all three of our children. My sister will probably only have this one child, so I am sure she wants to choose wisely.
So please, click on the "Comments" link below and add your tips and product recommendations for a new baby. I will compile them and send them to my sister! To thank you for participating, I am going to choose one commenter to receive this sweet Summer Fun Paper Album. You can use it to show off some of your summer pictures, or give it as a gift. I will choose a winner Thursday morning! Thanks for your help!!!
UPDATE: Dawn won the giveaway! You can still comment, but the giveaway is closed.
People think I am organized... but I'm not. I always say, "I am start-up not maintenance" because while I like to organize, I have a hard time keeping things that way! Moving a lot throughout my life has probably contributed to that particular characteristic. I feel most alive when I am being creative... whether it is on the computer, scrapbooking, sewing, deccorating, cooking, or with my kids. I love my family, friends, and the Lord. I am thankful for my fabulous husband. My life is very blessed... definitely not perfect... but absolutely blessed!
