Brittany. I absolutely love this fabric banner she made, and it will look adorable over Maeva's changing table! Since I'm not fully setting up her nursery yet, this was the perfect thing to put up so it feels like I've actually done some decorating. Thank you so much Brittany...you are so incredibly thoughtful and it is the perfect touch for her room!
--I finally started packing our hospital bags. Why is it that I feel like this is my first time to do this? I cannot for the life of me think what I need and know I'm going to end up with a bunch of random things I don't need. I ended up selling the 2 diaper bags that I used for Manny, and bought the Timi & Leslie Charlie II. Love the look of it; hope I also like the functionality once I start using it.
NoseFrida? I didn't hear about it until Manny was old enough that we didn't really need anything like that, but I'm thinking of ordering one to use for MB. I HATE suctioning babies, and if this makes it easier at all, I definitely need one.
--Thanks for all of the incredibly sweet comments on Maeva's baby shower! I definitely feel so blessed to have had a 2nd shower and that my mom and sisters made it such a special day for us. I got a few questions on things from the shower, and thought I would answer some of them here. I used my Cricut to cut out the chalkboard labels. Chalkboard vinyl can be purchased here. I also cut the monograms with my Cricut. I don't use cartridges, but always use my Sure Cuts a Lot software. Unfortunately it is no longer for sale as a Cricut compatible version, so I'm sorry I'm not more help there. As far as the banner that said Maeva Beth, I designed it in Photoshop. If you aren't familiar with how to do that, then you might check out this tutorial I did on my blog awhile back for another way to make a custom banner: DIY Easy Banner Tutorial. The custom water bottle label tutorial, including a template you can download and customize yourself, can be found here. I think I've responded via email to any other questions I got, but if I missed yours please let me know!
Happy Monday, friends! :)
