Baby Shower and A New Baby.

Of course like most of my post these days this one is a little late. 
Most of you probably already know who Cynthia is {the BFF}, well at the end of February her Mom hosted her baby shower. We {her mom, sis, a friend from college, and myself} all put our ideas together and threw her a fabulous shower. Her mom really went all out with the cute little table runners she made to match the color scheme to the violinist she hired to play as guest were arriving, this was really a nice touch. There were all sorts of yummy food and sweets for everyone. My favorite would have to be the stuffed mushrooms {which I am gonna have to get the recipe for because of course I already forgot it} and the cucumber little sandwiches Kristin made. We made the little tissue pom poms to hang {who doesn't love those?!} and Vicky found out that she could use see thru thread to sew together the cute little vellum circles to go with the pom poms { I think I am stealing this idea for Bentley's birthday party} Everything was perfect.

I made some yarn wrapped letters of the baby's name,which is now in the nursery:) And one of my new favorite decorations are the little flag pennants made from fabric. Super easy and so cute!

Her mom loves to quilt and sew. SO of course she went all out again making 3 different quilts and a ton of bibs and burb cloths.

Last Thursday morning, April 18th {a few days early} baby Beckett decided it was time to make an appearance.

Beckett William 8lb 8oz and 21 inches long.

I am so thrilled for Cynthia and Joe.Cynthia has wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember and she finally is. This little dude has the best mommy. She is going to be a great mom and both her and Joe will be great parents. I am so looking forward to those chats with her about mommyhood, the ups and downs, and everything in between. I can't wait to hear her stories about screaming crying babies and crazy toddlers running wild. I will finally be the listener for once, she has been listening to me for over 5 years now:)  

Congratulations Cynthia & Joe...I love you both and couldn't be happier for you! XOXO
