Last weekend Nicole and I hosted a Baby Shower for Angelina. Family and friends from near and far (San Jose, Paradise (north of Chico), Sacramento, Redding, Upland, Orange, and Santa Ana) came to shower Angelina and her baby boy, Micah, due May 20, with lots of clothes and baby essentials!
Nicole made some very cute decorations with dots (a favorite of Angelina), including this mobile that Angelina can hang in Micah's room.Cupcakes (another favorite and must for Angelina) were made from scratch by Nicole and decorated with brown, green and blue M & M's. A baby bottle was filled with brown, green and blue M & M's for a fun guessing game.
Here's Angelina with the baby quilt I made for Micah. Angelina found the pattern on a blog and picked the colors. No standard blue and boy theme for Micah. The colors for baby Micah's room are brown, greens and a bit of blue, with lots of dots and some animals thrown in. I also made a quilted throw out of the same fabrics, some burp cloths, receiving blanket and a pack n' play crib sheet.
Below, Angelina models the tote (Bunny Hill Pattern, Jelly Bags), which can also be used as a diaper bag, made of the leftover fabrics from the quilt!!If you look closely you can see the baby bump under Angelina's green shirt. With just a bit more than four weeks to go, it's looking like this baby will have everything he needs and more!
Nick and I have plans to take our RV up to Orange county, to Newport Dunes RV Resort the weekend before Micah is due and the weekend after his due date--in hopes he will be born on one of those weekends while we are there. To say we are anxious is a bit of an understatement. We all love baby Micah so much and can't wait to meet him!
