Celebrate BABY: little gifts

Over the past few months some darling things have shown up at our house, addressed to miss Clara.   Just thought I’d share some cuteness with you….

From Tiffany at Simply Modern Mom, some crocheted headbands and a little hat.  Lucy couldn’t get over the ties on the hat and kept saying, “mom! Clara has pink hair braids!” My good friend Katherine gave us these totally fun chewbeads and Clara is just itching to use them (drool constantly oozes from her mouth).A while back I shared pics of the kids on my favorite yellow blanket…which comes from Katy at No Big Dill.  Isn’t it cheery?!  (she’s got a tutorial for the triple stitched blanket here). It showed up at our house the day after Clara was born so Casey brought it to the hospital and the timing was perfect.  A cold front came through and I hadn’t packed enough blankets for taking Clara home.  No big Dill saved the day.A medley of purple and pink from my cute friend Lonna and sister-in-law Laura (baby GAP and Old Navy). I had pinned the pink chevron dress and Laura caught wind of it. Just another reason to love Pinterest (and sweet sisters-in-law):Another darling blanket and personalized name frame from my photography friend Katie Evans. Each time we have a newborn in the house I pick one blanket that stays on the couch for the baby to lay, be changed, hang out, etc. But it has to match the decor of the room…and I couldn’t find the right one….till Katie’s blanket showed up. Yay!  It was meant for our house.Some soft sweet cuteness overload here…
• A crocheted hat from Delia. Love the color.
• From my sister-in-law Lauren, an adorable sun hat and handmade bootie set purchased in Barcelona, Spain when she was on vacation.BOTTOM:
• An ultra soft blanket from Renee at Little Ticket. If you’ve never been to their shop, GO NOW. Everything is darling.
• Two hand-knitted hats from Casey’s co-worker McKenzie. Great colors, so very soft, totally cute, and dude, she’s got skills. She made the sweetest green sweater for Owen when he was born that I’ll never be able to part with.

One last grab-bag from Katie at the Red Kitchen. A vintage sheet bib, dyed onesie, handmade buttons, and even a treat for me…m&ms! (in totally cute packaging). This girl knows how to brand things.Thank you, thank you, thank you friends!
Clara blows a few thank you bubbles your way too.
